I used to ogle the Alfa Romeo GT until I spotted the uber-sexy Alfa Romeo Brera. Vrooom! When I get my UK license, I aspire to one of these! Posted by Picasa

Never been a massive Alfa fan to be honest. I think it's the stigam of Italian cars looking beatiful. More accurately, Italian cars looking beatiful while stationary as they broke down about every 3.5 miles.

To be fair, Alfas were unfairly tarnished with this brush though as they managed to build durability into the machines that until recently evaded everyone from Fiat to Ferrari.

And you're right. It is damned pretty. You may not believe me but I think I'd go for that red Coupe over the Porsche Cayman.

Beautiful even. Don't know what it is with your blog and my grammar and spelling!

Matt - I know, and I choose to ignore the stigma.
Because...they're Italian, and like everything Italian they *are* damned beautiful...
Or even beatiful.

I grew up with Italian cars. Fiats mainly. I still love the old ones, but the new ones leave me cold.

Damn, yet another blog comment where I appear to be sad and old. Gonna have to do something about this. Right after I take a nap.

Famulus - Fiats? It's no wonder you've gone off Italian cars!
