Must admit I don't see too many Alfa's on my way around Bristol. Then I'd look like a right idiot waving at AR's from an Omega MV6!...
Not anymore, I've just took the plunge and bought myself a tidy black 159 SW , high mileage but comes with a detailed FSH and a brand new mot. Cant wait to pick it up this weekend.
Anyone want an Omega?
Back in the old days, before the 156 came out, all Alfa owners used to wave at each other. I remember getting my new 2.5 V6 S3 in '97 and on my first trip out, saw another 156 and we waved madly at each other. That was the last time I got a wave driving a "modern" Alfa.
I still get waved at in my partners MX5, I get a nod from other Range Rover P38 owners (probably in releif that someone else is just as insane to own one as they are) and always get a wave in our RCZ.
I usually got a cheery wave when driving my Abarth 500, barchetta and when the 500 first came out we all used to wave, but thats all gone now. Seems popularity breeds contempt sadly.
So... you think you have seen another AlfaOwner on your travels? Post it in here, and find out if indeed you have - you never know, there may well be an AO'er just around the corner from yourself!
From St. Ives to Swindon, and Gloucester to Portland.... keep your eyes peeled!
