Ciao tutti

“Alfa Romeo is not merely a maker of automobiles : it truly is something more than a conventionally built car. It is a kind of affliction, an enthusiasm for a means of transport. It is a way of living, a very special way of perceiving the motor vehicle. What it is resists definition. Its elements are like those irrational character traits of the human spirit which cannot be explained in logical terms. They are sensations, passions, things that have much more to do with man’s heart than with his brain”.

Denmark? Isn't that the flat part before Germany
yup, sure is flat, with lotsa nice straight motorways (highest rate of mile of motorway pr. square mile in the world - were obsessed with them!) to take the Alfa for a spin - if it werent for all those Swedes passing through, blocking the roads, insisting to drive 110km/h like they were back in Sweden

(so, I guess you guys've found out that danes&swedes like to pick at each other!)

Forza L'unione Europea!!! many europeans on this forum, good to see. Thers an easy solution to a peaceful and friendly Europe, everyone should drive Alfa theb everyone would be happy no?

Current: 89' Milano Gold(sold)

Be warned though, Alfas can have a strange effect on owners; ‘Alfaholic’ a recognised condition among car enthusiasts

I guess I must be the only Alfa BB member from Central America. I was born in El Salvador, lived in L.A. since I was four (the last 34 years). Grand Ma was German and Grand Pa was third generation Salvadorian so I have no idea of his lineage. But he had an Alfa!

Armenian and Germanic - it's a little vague since I was adopted - the Armenian genetics won over in the looks department - I got none of the blond hair blue eyes my birth father had. I did get the Armenian coloring and 'look' .

Now my folks are French Italian Scotish (mom) and English, Irish, Scotish, German and Cherokee (dad).

We are a family of good ol' American Mutts!

Have visited Mexico, Canada, Belize, Bonnaire, France, Monaco, Italy (cote d'azure part for about 3 hours) Germany and Jamaica. Would love to live or work abroad! haven't done nearly the traveling I'd like to.

Grandmother always went on about being French and Scottish, but was the quintessential Italian Grandmother - was always feeding me then patting me on the *** and asking when I was going to lose that Everyone's Italian grandmother makes the best meatballs, but mine truely did!

'79 Spider Veloce (for sale see bb classifieds)
'87 Milano - looks like hell, but runs well.

Made in Japan, bred in America, and fluent in English, Japanese and Alfa lingua.

BTW, there are many more Alfisti where I come from. The ranks of Alfisti in Japan easily outnumber Bimmer-philes; a not so difficult concept to grasp. The type and number of Alfas there are truly mind-boggling.

As are we. I'm a Connecticut Yankee in King Alfa's court, my wife is a born and bred Manhattan native. Between us, our son has in his background Italian, Scottish, German, English, Irish, Greek, and Russian Jew. And who knows, probably something else thrown in, too.

I'm genetically a Mopar man, and I guess I still am to some extent, but have always wanted an Alfa and finally have one.

Mine made the best lasagna. And I'm serious about that. No one else has ever come close.
