Non deserving Alfa Owners.

This deserves a thread of it's own imo... time to post picts of wrecked Alfas here. Name and shame! Let's start with this:

Wrecked Alfas

There's at least 5 more maybe even 10 by now threads about that spider between WOT, GAD & the Tech GTV Tech Lounge

Just saying like :HALO: Nice to have a local one though :IRISH:

Yeah, I was going to post this aswell

I know as an alfa owner the dilemma when it comes to parking in car parks, but this is completely moronic.

I wouldn't worry about it, none of the others did You should get out more
Nothing wrong with staying local either though :IRISH:

Hopefully there won't be too many offenders but unfortunately I'm guessing there will be

Saw this one today... It was in good condition really except for all the paint missing from the bonnet.. It looked like it was etched off....

I wanted to bring her home and give her a good T-cut and wax. Or, do a Dermo on it and have full cosmetic surgery!

Have seen something similar on a neighbours car..

I can't remember what did it exactly, but he got it washed somewhere and usually drove in to his driveway leaving the back end exposed to the sun and basically the sun combined with whatever was used to wash the car bleached the paint on the roof and boot!
