I know what you’re thinking! You’re thinking “there he goes”.
Another knucklehead who wants to annoy the rest of us lot with idiotically stupid metaphors about how an Alfa, albeit unreliable, is the emblem of passion about cars and driving.
And you’d be exactly right!
The day I took hold of the mighty Alfa Romeo GTV was a splendid day, as you can see from the picture.
Right until the moment I actually got into the car to drive it, and then it was a rather British day, rainy, foggy, grey, frosty, cold. And of course this being an Alfa, the windscreen wipers were broken. And so was the aircon.
But the clock was correct!
I’m sorry but if you haven’t driven an Alfa Romeo with no air conditioning and no wipers on a very cold and rainy day you really can’t understand the pure joy of driving. The Alfa GTV is as flawed as Keira Knightley.
But you’ll love her just as much as you do Keira.
