What a bugger for you guys over in the States, we have heaps of 156s out over here, but then again we have continued to receive new Alfas of all models over the years.
The 156 is a really nice Alfa to drive as your daily driver. I have had my '03 JTS Sportwagon for the past 3 1/2 years and it has been incredibly reliable, economical, comfortable but best of all fun to drive. It still puts a grin on my face each time I take it for a spin.
"Sporting blood has run through the veins of every Alfa Romeo produced over the last **100** !!
