Rik sorry to muddy the waters but I'm not a member of the forum but am a member of AROC UK.
Will that mess up numbers for the record?

14 Alfas in the pic - 1 Mito if you like + Bob's 156 at the bottom of the Healy Pass IIRC

IIRC there are a few who read AO without actually posting but turn up to an odd meet also I think another AO member turned up in a Mazda instead ot his GTV turbo ?




So make that 15/16 as the current record, not that anyone is counting

Forgot about Bob's 156...

You can't count a Mazda though..
So 14 is the record.

Poor Bob

I'll give you that

However the Mito should count, well it's an Alfa & it was there, also the question was "How many cars at an AO Meet"


That'll be 15




Sorry I'm bored & haven't much else to do other than argue

me neither... and seeing as I'm on the bottom end of the second bottle of wine, I'm probably more "discussion" orientated than usual

Any chance of the list of who has confirmed so far?

I got the Sud going again tonight. I have put a whopping total of 82 miles on it now since I bought it. Unfortunately thats also 82 miles since 1999. The trip down to limerick should be a laugh
