The Carabinieri and most other Italian Police Forces now drive a lot of Alfa 156s. I have also seen a few Alfa 166 cop cars there.

Cheers,
Alex

I agree with you guys, I just rented and watched the medallion... it is one of the cheesiest and fakest moves I have ever seen, and they make the Interpol look like a bunch of idiots... I only rented it to see the Alfa you guys mentioned was in the movie... well it aint worth the 2 seconds you see it for! might as well look at a picture of it, and to believe I sat through another 1 1/2 hours of the movie thinking it would show up again mabey with a car chase or something... not a chance!

Jackie Chan movie review

Oh, you movie critics ara all the same.
How can you overlook the fine, multi layered acting performance of Jackie Chan.
It is only because of ugly political Hollywood that he has been denied Academy recognition.


Sorry, gotta go now. The bus is leaving for Santa Maria and the Michael Jackson rallye. I don't want to be late. I just bought 10 tee shirts in support of MIchael.

Oh, what. I have to put my straight jacket on and have my medication. . . . . .

Prejudice ! - according to CNN he was only 15 minutes late, not 20.

Gotta get your facts straight buddy.

Philip,

So that was YOUR car, huh?

Very cool! Who drove it? The guy did a pretty good job I think!

I just saw the film, "Ripley's Game " it is set in Italy and Jon Malkovich (Ripley) drives a Red 156 Sportswagon throughout the film. Looks good and features loads. Last time we saw Ripley drive a car, it was also an ALFA, with Matt Damon as Ripley in "The talented Mr Ripley" briefly behind the wheel of a Red Guilietta Spider which belonged to one of his victims.
