Warning Re: what would you drive if there wasnt any such thing as an Alfa Romeo

I voted other.Id also like to say Mitsi too.

Id like to be/hope to be driving a Nissan R33 or R34 V-Spec 2.6 inline 6 twin turbo Skyline or a 450+bhp road/trackday Mitsi Evo 6 inline 4 turbo.

But because that Alfa Romeo does exist Id quite possibly like to build a 500+bhp 3.7 litre twin turbo V6 147 GTA.This is another one I have my eye on for next year.



I just have to sell a certain little Alfa first.

Couldn't say as I haven't driven any other car than Alfa (and of course Focus in driving school and that is car that I don't want to drive never again)

Re: what would you drive if there wasnt any such thing as an Alfa Romeo

The Barchetta is a fun little car, economical too, but the chassis is too weak IMHO. It's a nice cruising machine with a good torqueye engine too (Behold it has the same variator as the Alfa twinsparks) It's mighty rare in Denmark, meaning it's a real posers car. I really enjoy driving my Mum's Barchetta from time to time, but it would soon wear on me But I do smile everytime I see one

Edit; Mumsy's Barchetta as attachment

Re: what would you drive if there wasnt any such thing as an Alfa Romeo

Strange this, I havenít actually got any pictures of it. It's not mine, the picture was taken in my folks drive way. They've got money, I donít The boat belongs to my dad. I did find this one though, I took it while I was helping him storing it for winter last. From memory its' a 21 foot SeaRay walk around with a Mercury 150 Bhp outboard V6 and a 10 Bhp Mariner 4 stroke for trolling. Daddy'o likes gadgets, (the apple never falls far from the tree does it) meaning he's got !!!!loads of GPS, radio, leccy trolling winders and stuff.

The butt sticking out of the nether regions of the boat belongs to me dad, he was trying to fix the switch for the automatic bilge pump
