which cars do you drive and why? astra estate for work(soon to be a sportwagon when someone sells me theirs).gtv for pleasure.jodys astra if weíve got a passenger or need to put something bigger than a sandwich in the boot

Are you a real passionate for Alfa Romeo? most definately

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

One of my friends bought a 1.8 x reg giullietta for £150 when we were 17 and we were out in it every night.he was a great driver so we all had faith in night he was booting it up a hill and it was like the car was saying ďcome on then is that itĒIíd never felt like that in a car before.and Iíve always liked to be a wee bit different to the rest of the pack and alfas fit the bill perfectly.wouldnít say itís fundamental to own one to have the passion because I couldnít afford a car for a few years but I still had the passion for alfas.

Would you ever consider joining an Alfa Club or are you already a member of one?I considered joining aroc after going to auto Italia weekend at brooklands about 10 years ago then I met an old friend at a Scottish alfa meeting and he was wearing a brand new ferrari shirt straight out of the box with the creases down the front,and I thought if this is the kind of rocket that goes to these meetings then Iíll join a tennis club or something.

What do you like most about Alfas? not everyone has one

What do you like least about Alfas?the sportwagons Iím trying to buy are too f#*:ing expensive

What would be your dream cars? Iíve got my dream car

What car would you least like to drive? my astra estate

For you, whatís the most popular thread on AO? General chat.
What would be your ideal drive in an Alfa (destination, passenger, driving music, etc)?
anywhere with jody listening to hot fuss/under the iron sea/hats off to the buskers

Any humorous Alfa or car-related stories you wish to share with us?
My first carís(mark 3 escort)clutch cable snapped in the town so my friend(the good giulietta driver)managed to drive the car up the road and my job was to keep checking if any cars were coming when we were approaching a junction.i had to keep sticking my head out the window to see as much as I could but halfway up the road I closed it.we were just around the corner from my house when I panicked as we approached a junction and attempted to see if there was anything coming and headered the window really hard and near knocked myself out.luckily we got home kind of safe.last year we were on our way to a friends house after being on a night out and I didnít feel too well.on the way I asked jody to pull over for me to be I went to be sick something went wrong and the sick came out the wrong end.luckily we keep tissues in the glove we were in the country I wasnít too embarrassed.wasnít funny at the time for me but jody and our friends liked it.

What interests do you have outside of Alfas? I love my job,music,we go to Glasgow nightclubbing,holidays and I love anything to do with new york.

Tell us something nobody knows about you. (E.g. special skill, ever been on TV, etc) I am really really funny.if only people knew.

Do you have a party trick? If so what is it?since Iím around the same weight as when I was at school(10 stone)I can still break dance.

What do you like most about the Alfaowner forum? Any favourite threads, episodes or people?the friendliness,I like it when someone new joins and the welcome they get is fantastic.oh it seems like just the other week I joined.iíve no favourite people( I love you all)but I like it when things are getting a wee bit heated and Bigfoot or wrinx calms things down(must be their age).i like the maturity with some people because without them things would just get silly.and we donít want or need that.

If you had £50,000 you had to spend in 72 hours, how would you choose to spend it?Iíd spend £49.940 on lottery tickets and fill the gtv up and go for a lovely drive with jody.(aaaaaaaahhhhh)
