Rate my Interview! It's Amazing! (LOL)
Your Forum name
Parts Specialist for a Truck Rental Company
Only the one, in Bristol... UK
which cars do you drive and why?
Alfa Romeo 156 2.5 V6, and because I have loved the look of them since day one and decided to finally get one. Brilliant style with matching performance, cant go wrong.
Are you a real passionate for Alfa Romeo?
Yep, always have been. Only now though can I afford one!
What or how started your passion for Alfa Romeo and…
….do you think it’s fundamental to own one to have the passion?
Having the 156 as my first Alfa Romeo I can safely say it is like no other car I have driven, they're great car's and you haven't driven a car until you've driven an Alfa.
Would you ever consider joining an Alfa Club or are you already a member of one?
This is my one and only Alfa club, lol
What do you like most about Alfas?
Their looks. And performance compared to similar engined car's.
What do you like least about Alfas?
The likely-hood that something will break at some point of my ownership, and it won't be an easy repair, lol
What would be your dream cars?
1970 Dodge Charger
1998 Twin Turbo Supra
(I have actually made a top 50 list so I better not continue, lol)
What car would you least like to drive?
Probably a Nissan Figaro... A man at a Japanese Import Dealer tried selling one to me whilst I was browsing and I've hated them ever since the day I laid eyes on it. Sorry to all you Figaro fan's!
For you, what’s the most popular thread on AO?
What would be your ideal drive in an Alfa (destination, passenger, driving music, etc)?
Most popular Threads for me are the 156 Technical ones, I like to hijack them and bombard everyone with questions, lol (Sorry guy's!)
In regards to the ideal drive I would have to say heading down Route 66 at crazy speed's listening to some good ol' Country music with the missus by my side.
Any humorous Alfa or car-related stories you wish to share with us?
Not that I can think of right now, only had the car 2 weeks. And my previous car's have been Mondeo's, a Probe, and an old Scirocco, nothing that humorous there either sorry, lol. Oh, the brakes went on the Scirocco once so I had to use the handbrake as the brake for the whole journey back. Fun times...
What interests do you have outside of Alfas?
Spending time with my fiancee, going out to the cinema, watching TV, reading, still into the PS2 and it's racing games much to the fiancee's disdain! Test Drive Unlimited is great, started me off with an Alfa Romeo!
Tell us something nobody knows about you. (E.g. special skill, ever been on TV, etc)
Damn, thats a toughy... I honestly can't think of anything. No special skills sadly, was once on You've Been Framed where I smash my head on a hanging lamp and break it. Earnt me £250! Bargain, lol.
Do you have a party trick? If so what is it?
I can fly. Wait, no, that's not true, sorry... lol. This is starting to make me look like some boring sod who doesn't do anything and can't do anything, haha!
What do you like most about the Alfaowner forum? Any favorite threads, episodes or people?
People wise there are a few top guy's I've come across so far, Vecth is one of them, Pud's cool... Hmm, trying to think, I've posted so much stuff already I've met everyone and love them all, lol. Thread wise I just like jumping onto the new Threads section and throwing in my worthless advice / opinion, lol
If you had £50,000 you had to spend in 72 hours, how would you choose to spend it?
Get married and lose half of it right away leaving me with only £25,000, lol. Then probably stick a deposit down on a mortgage for a nicer house, give the 156 to the missus and buy a GTV 3.0i V6. Job done. Case closed. lol
