What cars do you drive and why?

155 1.8 (Black) - 'cos it's an Alfa!! ... and the only car I have

Are you a real passionate for Alfa Romeo?

To be honest, if you said 'Alfa Romeo' to me 4 years ago, I would have thought you were talking about an Italian actor. Since having my 155 I have fallen in love with Alfa's and I find myself trying to find out all I can about them - old and new.

What or how started your passion for Alfa Romeo?

The 155 has been my only car since I learnt to drive. I was given to me by my mum's boyfriend when he had a company car. At first I scowled at the idea but soon changed my mind when I started her up. After that I was drawn into the world of Alfa Romeo.

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

Well I don't know if you count the AO Club but other clubs....who knows what the future holds! Wouldn't mind joining AROC one day.

What do you like most about Alfas?

Everything. The shapes, the sounds...

What do you like least about Alfas?

The high cost of insurance for young drivers like me

What would be your dream cars?

At the moment I just dream of mine looking nice!! and also havign an 8C

What car would you least like to drive?

Anything like the toy cars KIA produce!!

What would be your ideal drive in an Alfa (destination, passenger, driving music, etc)?

My 155 fully functional, Kate Beckinsale and some nice old rock to cruise along to.

Any humorous Alfa or car-related stories you wish to share with us?

This isn't humorous but some members may remember this story from when I first joined AO. On Christmas Eve '05 around 8pm I was driving along quite happily listening to my music when the car in front slammed her breaks on. Obviously I followed to do so but found myself skidding along on the gritted road. My heart went faster as I approached her car to relax when it stopped about half a metre from her back end. As I breathed a sigh of relief I glanced at my rear view mirror to see a Ford Escort 1.9 Convertible hurtle towards me with no sign of stopping (this is on a road of 50mph limit). After the impact, I got out to find my 155 sandwiched, the escort (later found out it was her first car and she had only passed her test a week ago) was a wreck - as in engine was in half and the other car was fine (fine for her). After that my car was classed as a write off but after some TLC and a hole in my wallet she is back from the dead!!

What interests do you have outside of Alfas?

Computers, gaming, girls , driving...

Tell us something nobody knows about you. (E.g. special skill, ever been on TV, etc)

I appeared on television when I was around 8 on the BBC News about school dinners! Woo go me!

Do you have a party trick? If so what is it?

I am unbeatable at sleeping lions after a night out in Cardiff!!

What do you like most about the Alfaowner forum? Any favourite threads, episodes or people?

I like it all to be honest! Especially the technical bit. Has helped me alot during the repairs of the 155

If you had 50,000 you had to spend in 72 hours, how would you choose to spend it?

It would all go on the 155 on final repairs and mods to the body kit, decent sound system, etc.
