Once bitten...

Wow. Think your 'gonna get some feedback on this one...

For me the 156, (2.5:lol:), as it suited my needs at that time, (family and fun), and I was only running one car. Now the GT, (3.2:inlove:), takes the tittle as its a car for me solely, gives the best 'alfa' experience, (Busso), and I don't have to worry too much about the economy - well OK just a bit!

That'd be the Red '72 S2 Spider I had for 25 years, it was chassis number 1 of that model so in a minor way an interesting part of AR history. More to the point I had a lot of fun and pleasure out of it.

V6 Brera hands down.

The amount of compliments that car received was amazing.

Remember driving out of the car yard with it. Even the boom gate operator was drooling over it.

I have a special place in my heart for the red 164 v6 that my dad taught me to drive in. It ended up as a hand me down. I'll never forget the wonderful burble of that engine, sadly lacking from the gqv we have now. Such a great car to drive too. I've spent the last ten years in the wilderness (a hilux). I love being back in an alfa again though! The gqv is a little ripper. I'm quietly praying that marchionne comes good with new models. I hadn't realised how much of an alfa guy I am.

My current 75 :D. Someday it will be my 75 QV. Or, ideally, a GT Junior :).

33S Permental-4 :)

At the time I was the only fella in the car-park who didn't qualify for a works car (Ford Orion 1.6 GLS, as it was then) so I had to buy my own. When any new joiner started, they used to think I was the boss, rather than the bottom-of-the-range grunt! :D

Only on my first Alfa so there is no choice. The Giulietta. Maybe the saxo will get replaced eventually with a Mito or even the new MX5 derivative. Then I will have a problem choosing

Probably my 145QV as (pre engine destruction) it never missed a beat, never let me down and was a huge amount of slightly comfy fun that surprised a lot of people with how rapid it was

My Alfasud Sprint got me hooked on Italian cars and positively fizzed with character.

My GTV6 was probably the most charismatic: powerful engine (for its day), smooth and creamy with it, gorgeous body and some neat road-manners too.

My 166 was the best made: seven years and nothing went wrong. Fast and dependable.

But of all of them I think my 164 is the one I would like to have in my garage again. Three litres in a light body it really did shift but at the same time was a comfortable motorway monster with a huge boot. I have such fond memories of mad trans-continental journeys in that car; pre-speed camera days when I can remember going from the Alps to Paris in a few hours with the speedo hardly ever dipping below 120 mph. Happy days.

My First one which was a 3.0 V6 164

Probably the best all rounder and certainly the most reliable and best built Alfa I have owned.

My 33. The exhaust pop when you came off the accelerator made me smile every time.

4C simply crushes it. Same price bracket.

£50k vs £30k. Yeah thats about the same

Lets compare a 911 turbo against a BMW Z4, they are about the same type of car in the same price bracket
