I had a strange occurrence happen a week or so ago. Pulled into my usual gas station to fill up with my bright red 91S and lo and behold, another bright red 164 pulled into the opposite side of the pump. I could hardly believe my eyes. Talked with the fellow, a young Asian going to the U I guess, but he had little experience with Alfas, and didn't know anything about the Alfa web sites. He was just driving through the area, and decided to gas up. Didn't really want to talk about Alfas, though, pity. I've seen this before, the Asian owners seem to go their own way, not with the usual enthusiasm. This is certainly not meant to be a knock on Asians in general, as I have many fine Asian friends.
