Random idea...

Hello there,
Completely random idea here... I have noticed that there is quite a few of us who have another car other than our beloved Alfas.
How about instead of having an 'Alfa meet' we have an 'Other Car meet' somewhere. It will be interesting to see everyones 'other' cars. Whether they are classic, barried, rust buckets or just plain normal it would be something different.
Just an idea...

My other car is a mountain bike, so we'd best make the meet somewhere close to Worcester!

Maybe we should make this an 'other mode of transportation of any kind' meet then
Whether that's a horse, bike, foot, helicopter, car or JCB

its the worst car ever. its ogt an auto box that makes a selespeed look godlike

i might add id only come on me bike if it was a nice day without a hint of rain, only ridden a couple of times in the rain and its so easy to spin up the rear you'd have t be mad to ride it in the wet

It'll take an Alfa disaster for me to turn up in the Focus.
Interesting idea all the same.

very good idea this, although i wont be able to attend in my other car, main reason is that i cant get it off my drive, nor does it see daylight anyway, lol

however i do have a 50cc moped, a custom built mountain bike and a custom built bmx, lol

Hmmm I haven't actually made it to a meet yet but I'd be interested in this, not least because despite the fact I have 3 Alfa's my other car is dare I say it better than all of them.

So, do I turn up in my GT TDi Golf? or Mrs GB's new shape Agila 1.2 petrol? (so as not to upset V6Hughes, our in-house dieselphobe)

Sssssshhhhhh! I was going to try and keep that idea quiet! You know, put the bike in the back of the car, drive to just outside earshot (!) of the Fountain, and then cycle the last bit
