Alfa 146 1.8 TS

Ok, here's my turn :o)

Your Forum name

Real name
Paul westcott


Actuarial analyst

North Wales

Marital Status
Single (for now!)

which cars do you drive and why?
146 1.8 TS and a 156 2.0 Selespeed. I use the 156 for commuting to work and normal day to day driving but the 146 is just for weekend fun. Iíve had the suspension altered and a few other tweeks done, so itís nice to get out onto the twisty Welsh lanes of a weekend and have some fun (although you will need a snooper installed thanks to Mr Brainstorm, sorry, Brunstrom!)

Are you a real passionate for Alfa Romeo?
Most definitely

What or how started your passion for Alfa Romeo andÖ
Ö.do you think itís fundamental to own one to have the passion?

My Dad started me off as he always had Alfas as far back as I can remember. I was given his old Sprint as my first car (unfortunately I wasnít that good at looking after them in those days and it really just rusted away!)

Would you ever consider joining an Alfa Club or are you already a member of one?
Already a member of one.

What do you like most about Alfas?
The styling and the sheer fun of driving one. Never fails to bring smile to my face. Iím always finding excuses to Ďpop outí to the shops for something but never actually coming back with anything lol!

What do you like least about Alfas?
Very little now but many moons ago their reliability and build quality left a lot to be desired.

What would be your dream cars?
An 8C

What car would you least like to drive?
Any German car (BMW, Mercedes, VW, et al)

For you, whatís the most popular thread on AO?
No favorites as such as they are all good but I do think the technical sections are excellent

What would be your ideal drive in an Alfa (destination, passenger, driving music, etc)?
Has to be Southern Italy in an 8C with Uma Thurmann and Queen playing on the CD (come on guys, I can dream canít I?)

Any humorous Alfa or car-related stories you wish to share with us?
None humorous but quite a few scary lol!

What interests do you have outside of Alfas?
I parachute (ex member of the South African Parabats Ė hence nickname), mountain climbing and military modelling

Tell us something nobody knows about you. (E.g. special skill, ever been on TV, etc)
Was on TV is South Africa fleetingly during an inter-services rugby match

Do you have a party trick? If so what is it?
I can wiggle my ears like Stan Laurel if thatís any good?

What do you like most about the Alfaowner forum? Any favourite threads, episodes or people?
The friendliness of the Forum members and their willingness to help

If you had £50,000 you had to spend in 72 hours, how would you choose to spend it?
Straight down to Autodelta for one of their GT jobbies )

If we are what we eat, that makes me cheap, fast and easy
