People who don't own or haven't driven Alfas probably don't understand why they feature so heavily on these great petrolhead sites

Just drove the 1750 for the second longish run today and I get it. Just a sheer delight. Although I am still getting used to a lot of the noises she makes (not sure whether to worry or just accept them...) and haven't got the hang of cold starting!

If its been standing for more that about 2 week I always start my 1750 with a dose of diesel start help into the air filter, 2 or 3 japs on the speeder and it starts but still needs a few more japs for running evenly.
After a winter lay up I start by taking the plugs out, drip a little oil into the cylinders, connect the battery and a booster and turn the engine over a few times till I get oil pressure reading. Fit the plugs and does as above and it usually starts right away.
I gets a bit envy looking at that Aussie Spider, same model, colour and so, but mine got some evidence of 10 years use (and a little bubbling at the rear wheel arches, no rust not an Alfa ;)).
