What or how started your passion for Alfa Romeo andÖ
Ö.do you think itís fundamental to own one to have the passion?
I remember first being aware of Alfa Romeo when I seen the 156 on Top Gear and loving the design of the rear door handles. I then noticed Alfaís more often on the roads. The design, the character and grace on the road is unmatched by Japanese spewings! The heart shaped grille was - and is - unmistakable! You donít need to own one to love them.

Bar this one, Iím not a member of any other Alfa Club, but have been thinking about it.
