'Millions' of Alfas in Bath area?

Okay, maybe not millions, but I've been a 156 owner for two weeks now, and I must see about four or five different Alfas everyday.

I see everything from brand new GTs to an old skool Giulia parked in someone's drive!

Even had a Nuvola Blue 156 park next to me in town the other day!

Surely there must be a few owners on here?

Cheers,

Steve

P.S If someone waves at you in a red Twin Spark, it's me lol!

From Rome to bathe the stallions? Rather a large herd is that though?:

Don't really go through Rome much Zulu. Just the A36. Sometimes cut through Brass Knocker Hill???

I've been through 'Frome' once, which isn't far way...

No amphitheatre though, just an Aldis...

Re: 'Millions' of Alfas in Bath area?

Now that's what I like to hear.: Maybe we will all have a re-think over brand labels during this recessive period, and hopefully it will rub off on the kids, grandkids? Pesky little spendthrifts they have become. Get them back into plimsolls not fashion footwear???

Re: 'Millions' of Alfas in Bath area?

You know, I've been back in this area for 2 weeks now and it seems that every 4th car on the road is an Alfa, I even park next to a silver 1.8 TS 156 (he/she lives there) when I go to the shop round the corner.

Re: 'Millions' of Alfas in Bath area?

I'd like to think you might have seen me about in my 147, but having only had it for two weeks and it now being off the road pending engine replacement, it may be some time before its seen again!

I'll make sure I wave if I see anyone though

On my first day with my Alfa (today) I saw the grand total of two alfas, both parked... Is there actually anyone else from Swindon on here?

I lost my cherry in Bath. Within eyeshot of the Gasometers on the Upper Bristol Road.

There should be a plaque up or something.

I blame that Cider with lumps in as served in the White Horse at the bottom of Lansdown.

She looked like Robert Plant looks now then.
