Couple of alfas spotted in Aberdeen

When me and a friend were at McDonalds last night (just off of great northern road) there was an S reg 2.5 v6 156 pulled in behind me The car and the female driver were bothing looking in good condition
Then to my shock as soon as she drove away a 56 plate 147 came round the corner too.
My friend stopped me going over and giving them both a flyer Maybe a good thing I suppose, they might of thought I was mental haha
So anyone of here own these motors?

Wave

Not me, although I've spotted more Brera's going around aberdeen recently. In the last two weeks I've sat in the traffic queue on Wellington Road and seen both a black and a grey Brera S (both 2.2 versions). Passed a great looking GT Blackline on a 57 plate on the A90 around Newtonhill tonight as well. I was in a Fiat Panda, so didn't get the normal Alfa wave .

Anyone can always organise there own wee mini meets if they like too anyway, it would be good to see!

I would love to have a little get together with fellow alfa enthusiasts but like you said doesnt seem to be a rep for up here so not much happening.

I might have a go at rallying the troops tomorrow while im in work with nothing else to do But as a newer member I doubt I will have much luck, the AONS side of the forum seems pretty dry on visitors

Brera S

I go through phases of seeing Alfas. One day it'll be a few Mitos, the next 156s. On the odd day seen a couple of Breras around Altens. I'm always usually past before the idea of waving pops into my head.

There's a silver GT at my work, with an Alfaowner sticker on the back window to boot!

... and now a red Brera S (55 plate) in the visitors spot just outside the door, badly needing a wash and the bonnet is covered in stone chips, poor thing.

Nothing

I hope nobody ever sees my GTV, I'll be lynched...
It'll get cleaned/sorted soon-ish, doesn't deserve it right now though.

Brera 3.2 Q4 SV

That'd be me Woldn't worry 'bout it though Gleggy .. I won't take it personally
The run home from work in the evening often merges into a big mediocre blur so my Alfa spotting skiils must have been in top notch.
