Mine is A852 HLR and it says "Alfa Romeo" on the original number plates, plus A845 HLR was an Alfetta Gold Cloverleaf press car. I'd have thought that almost all of the 134 imported into the UK were registered to Alfa UK or the dealer network!
I think I have seen that car. An Alfa specialist in the North had it until last spring. I saw it when I was droping of some sud bits to be refurbished. He'd had it for a bit then stopped driving it. It was bought by another true Alfa enthusiast but the bodywork repairs needed were quite a lot (and there is quite a lot of it) so I understand it was sold on and the Romford guy who was a previous owner bought it. It hung around for a bit. Some of the statements made in the adverts by that Romford vendor seemed a mean given the genuine and enthuiastic nature of the previous owners.
I admire Alfa 6 owners - you take a love of Alfa's to a another level.
