Alfa 100 years - Irish times Article

Article



EDIT: Mondello Article


Quoting... "THERE ARE few car marques that can boast such a history of aesthetically exquisite machines as Alfa Romeo. Even their gloriously evocative roll-off-the-tongue names – think Giulia, Spider, Giulietta and Alfetta – put most other carmakers to shame."

I agree

A pity he decided to only use quotes from those interested in the pre 80's cars & those who think the only real Alfas are rear wheel drive Excellent job promoting an old stereotype & also including comments on an owner who had an unreliable 156 :HEADBANG:

I'm sure he'd also have heard plenty stories from 147/156/159/GT/Brera etc owners who've never had any problems with their Alfas then again that wouldn't have made a very interesting quote would it

Yep, his opening question to me was what was my opinion on Alfa reputation to rust, and was I worried that mine would suffer from it. (bearing in mind, this guy has an old BMW 2002)

My response, "All old cars rust, are you worried about your 2002?"
