Me and my Alfa
Why did I wait so long before buying an Alfa?
I started off with a Ford Anglia and progressed to a Prefect and eventually to a Consul MK1 - That was the klate 1940s / early 1950s.
Since then I have had VWs, other Fords, Nissans (Datsuns as they were then), Toyotas, Fiats 124 and the 124 Twin Cam, Citroens and eventually my first Alfa.
In Zambia in the late 1960s / early 1970s I longed for a 1750GTV but never got around to getting one, I instead kept to the VWs.
It horrors me to think that if I had followed my instincts whilst in Zambia I could have experienced the Alfa Driving experience 30 years sooner.
I tell people that one does not just drive an Alfa; it is like wearing a pair of gloves - it is part of you and is not just something that gets you from "A" to "B".
