which cars do you drive and why? I have a 2.5 V6 156 Ė Because I love the shape, the sound and the driving experience. It feels like its made by a person who cares, not a robot
Are you a real passionate for Alfa Romeo?I am now
What or how started your passion for Alfa Romeo andÖI donít really like FWD cars, and Iíve never rated them, so Iíd never considered an Alfa, I had a few FWD cars that were just cheap and practical, then one day I saw a 156 for sale on a dodgy car lotÖI didnít buy it but I couldnít get the thing out of my mind. In the end I went for a test drive, almost hoping I would not like it, and was hooked
Ö.do you think itís fundamental to own one to have the passion? Yes, you canít understand it Ďtill youíve driven on-They suck you in
Would you ever consider joining an Alfa Club or are you already a member of one? I like this forum- Its enough for now- Iím not a ďclubĒ person
What do you like most about Alfas? The passion of them itís a full on experience owning and driving them.
What do you like least about Alfas? No dealers any where near me. The internet helps though
What would be your dream cars? Before the 156 It was always a 1961 Corvette, Now probably its a 156 GTA, I mean I like brutal masculine cars, Cobraís, Corvetteís, Vipers, and I donít like Ferrariís, theyíre just not me
What car would you least like to drive? Any Ford
For you, whatís the most popular thread on AO? Technical stuff and the humor
What would be your ideal drive in an Alfa (destination, passenger, driving music, etc)? Sorry but for me to enjoy an Alfa moment Its on my own , music off and the window down enough to hear the sound of the engine and any quiet A roads Ė Oh thatís every morning on the way to work!!!
Any humorous Alfa or car-related stories you wish to share with us? Give me time Iíve not had it long
What interests do you have outside of Alfas? I go Fly and Sea fishing, I have two crazy Kids, used to do a bit of whitewater Kayaking and Canoeing and these days helping my partner Beth and my in laws with their Tipi Holiday business
Tell us something nobody knows about you. (E.g. special skill, ever been on TV, etc) Well for an Englishman I can speak Welsh- Tipyn bach ( a little bit) does that count?
Do you have a party trick? If so what is it? Iíve got kids Parties involve jelly and ice-cream these days
What do you like most about the Alfaowner forum? Any favourite threads, episodes or people? Its all great - something different all the time
If you had £50,000 you had to spend in 72 hours, how would you choose to spend it? Mortgage Iím afraid, still Iíd Keep a bit for the GTA!!
