156 versus DB9
My wife had to attend a driving course yesterday, or get three points on her licence and a fine. The participants were asked to briefly introduce themselves and, amongst other things, state what car they drive. Since she owns one she mentioned offhandedly ( as you do ! ) that she owns an Aston Martin DB9 Volante. "No, no ! surely you own an Alfa Romeo 156 GTA ! " the course organiser interupted her ( he clearly knew from his paperwork what car she had been nicked in ). After his interuption not only he but also many members of the course wanted to talk to her about it and when I later turned up in the Aston to collect her they were all very disappointed that I hadn't come in the GTA !!
