Today Is My Last Day Of Alfa Ownership

Well, sort of.

Tomorrow Iím going to take my 156 off the road, give it a good clean, fit a new pair of rear tyres and put it up for sale.

Iíve bought a 51-plate Punto off my brother for much cheapness and will be driving that while I save and search for a new Alfa.

Had it over 4 years. I've only had 6 cars in 21 years!

Could it be a decline in new Alfa sales from about 2004 feeding through to the second hand market?

Also, think of all those 156 owners who couldn't quite see a successor. When the Giulietta hits the second hand market, we'll be back.

Hope you get back in an Alfa soon.

Can't imagine a Punto doing the miles you do (did?).
