  6. Alfa owner wannabe!

    Introduce Yourself
    Hi, I really fancy to be Alfa Romeo owner. I just love the heritage, love the styling and the fact that the cars aren't expensive at the moment at all. Obviously for me the dream would be an old 1600 GTA which I adore in every aspect but it's way out of reach for me. Recently I've set my heart...

  15. Help out a Wannabe Alfa Owner

    General Alfa Discussion
    I am considering getting an alfa but I am under some financial constraints. I preface my question by telling you that I am in college and my better judgement knows that I probably should wait a few years before getting an alfa. Additionally, my research on the cars is very limited and it...
