Rat look?!

Anyone planning on creating an Alfa ´rat look´? Or should we leave that to VW ;-)

There are some very strange people aren't there.

Reminds me of the goth crew when I was a kid.

"You don't like us because we're differen't"

No, your no different to all the other idiots trying to be different.

I think the rat look is ok if it looks like you just rescued it from living a few years in a barn and you have sorted the runnig gear first before doing the body work. Not sure the look suits any Alfas
