I see Alfas everywhere!!!!!!
I think i will get a new job. I need the money anyway now that i have to pay tax on my tax, and i cant think of anything more easy than being a designer of a car. I could sit there with my little pad and pencil and think up anything from my imagination. Something that would make people go weak at the knees and convince them that they had to own one. I could make the car company millions and in turn make myself millions. I would be idolised by the world and offered vast sums of cash to work at other companies. I would become a God amongst men and walk the Earth in a halo of light and have people bow at my feet.
I cant think of any job that would be better. And heres the real incentive. Theres no talent required. Cant draw? Doesnt matter. Have no imagination? Not important. Dont know your pen from a kitchen appliance? Its ok.
And when your done and the cars finished, its gleaming paintwork glinting in the sunshine, the deep black of newly formed rubber sitting menacingly on the tarmac, you will truly be a God...and it will look like an Alfa. The sharp point of the grill, the angry look in its eyes and the graceful rear. You will have made it into the history books. Everyone will want to be your friend and you will get invited to exclusive parties where all the girls will want to be your friend. You will be richer than God.
Sounds good doesnt it? I think so. But every silver lining has a cloud and this one is that the Alfa is losing its identity. With other cars slowly transforming there look the Alfa will soon be just another normal looking car amidst the throngs of traffic. Their individuality will be lost and part of the thrill of owning one will die. At the moment i can park it up anywhere and watch from afar as people turn to admire it. I can still feel the excitement each morning as i leave my house and see it for the first time each day, but that time is fading. For the day of a Alfa is coming to an end. Designers leave to offers of girls and parties and take their genius elsewhere. True talent is a gift and few people have it. It seems ours is gone too.
