Re: Best Drive Home?
About 4 months ago,I was travelling out of Bristol at 10pm, as I reached the outskirts onto the A-roads I was in a line of traffic behind a coach, and 4 cars behind another 156. We both went out for the same overtake and I manged to get behind him as we passed the coach. It was a lovely rosso-red 2.5 V6.
We drove a beatiful tandem race for the next 12 miles, each car had it's merits but you can imagine who's was quicker! It was proper driving, not dangerous, but swift with loads of overtakes and slower drivers to pass. Mine was upto 105 degrees by the time we reached a set of lights where he was turning left, me right.
I was astounded to see a 65ish bloke at the wheel, windows down, I said "yours is quicker than mine" he said "yours is cleaner - but this is my 12th Alfa now andI don't clean it as much as I should" with that he gave me a salute said "nice driving yound man" and sped off through his green filter arrow.
Honestly the best drive home ever. What a dude.
