When asked, on joining this forum, where I first heard of E.B. there was no provision for a more specific reply, so I will give one. My association goes back to the early 70's when I imported 2000 Berlina from Cyprus. It is fair to say, in those early days, Alfa's reputation in UK was not particularly strong; all the better for those who knew the cars and were prepared to ignore the rhetoric as this helped the second hand market, although not the company. However, I have continuously owned Alfa's since then and do not, at the age of sixty understand what all that depreciative nonsense was all about. My current cars are a 1750 (my choise of badge for my 1.8, 156), which has 104,000 miles on the clock and still doesn't use any oil, and a 3.0ltr GTV (from new); which goes to see Mama every year, a much nicer car on the continent than on British roads. Having had the previous 2.5GTV which was balanced by a local engineering firm and cam-ed + spares by E. B., I can honestly say, I my current GTV is the better of the two. I am blessed with the ability to leave the past behind as a fond memory. The old was the greatest in its class for its time, but its time has gone, and my current model has more than adequately replaced it. I have not suffered the catastrophic failures that are oft reported of Alfa, although the 156 is a fragile gem. But in saying this, in those early years, living abroad, things may have been a lot different had E.B not been around! I hope they remain so, at least until my expiry date.
