Reality is I will have to get rid of perhaps a couple of cars just to appease the wife. We are looking also at buying more property so money might be a bit tight -still if there is a will there is usually a way.
My trouble is the idea of owning an exotic Alfa which is a rare car in NZ may be tempered by the reality of driving one. I believe I actually own some of the best cars Alfa made post war and the 2600 ,if you believe road tests, is a bit of a barge, nothing like the big Lancia Flaminia opposition (which were a superior car in every respect). Only thing is I can afford this and it is available now, in my home city, whereas a Lancia Flaminia-I like the Touring Coupe version, is an exotic unaffordable dream.
I`ll drive the thing to see if I like it. What appeals is its an Alfa, its a rare version, and it essentially belongs to another time, a gentlemans` touring car, rather like the Maseratis and big Lancias.
