Tonight I was introduced to a new friend ..... 2007 Alfa Romeo 159 Q4 Sportwagon loaded with a 3.2 V6, AWD, and 6 Speed. :eek: I'll post more pictures and a drive summary tomorrow. All I can say is this thing is beyond awesome. Next week, I am scheduled to review a few more future Alfa's bound for the US.

I remember thinking there's no way theyre gonna drive that car in the US if its not a car imported into the US normally, well without paying..a lot, picture bringing a Pagani or something.. heh.. FIAT had to pay a lot to do this legally, and if they didnt do it legally I am worried. heh.

PS. Anthony you lucky mug! I think I recognize that Hooper camera too... you coulda at least dropped some Valley peepz..Hints... **** haha jk.

This had nothing to do with the 599 tour. Those cars are already back east or close to being there. I took the pics over on Mulholland at VCR.

Are you sure its beyond awesome?

We were told that the engine sounds like a.... Buick V6? And if you wear italian jeans you might spill some espresso and go home crying. Right HenryKrinkle? :)

Why do you want cup holders?
When my friends are searching around for somewhere to put their drink i love saying "Alfa Romeo never made a car with cup holders" :cool:

Hmmm very secretive. Anthony is

a. Hanging out with Dietrich and Stefan too much.

b. Going back to being Mr. TV.

c. Somehow hooked up with a writing job.

d. Mystery.

You've got to start showing up to people's houses who are selling their GTV in that. After they go into shock they'll give you their car if you give them a ride.
