Hmmm Quizz.... who owned these Alfas

I have three pics here of historic Alfas.... who owned them ? ... and if you are really looking to waste some time, what models are they ?

No prizes, as thes are probably too easy .....

Re: Quizz.... who owned these Alfas

The second one was Mussolini's..... correct.


come on people, this is easy, the answers are all on AO already, just need to do some searching.........

I'll give you a hint..... the first and last ones belonged to two famous people that were connected to each other.....

Another hint.... the last one is not a Disco Volante, it was originally a 3000CM, but received this body when the car was bought for the owner.

Re: Quizz.... who owned these Alfas

Evita did own the first one..... another one correct, well done Celadon

Alfatastic, that would be a correct assumption !


One more hint about the third one, the chassis number is #00126
