Italian Fever

Since me & wifey got the Fiat Coupe, me has been struck by a bad case of Italianotistics. Spending far too much time on the Italia Auto forum & even staying up till 4am talking cock with other Italian car owners at a recent meet.

Many of ye will also know that one of the symptoms of Italianostistics is the feverish urge to racun all & sundry to join the gang. And while quite a few of ye have had to put up with me 'Buy Coupe' campaign, most of ye had the ready-made 'not practical' excuse at the tips of yer fooking tongues.

But ladies & gents, may I present ye with one of the, nay, the MOST beautiful, station wagon of all time - the Alfa Romeo 156 Sports Wagon.

(*drool*) . . .


Some dude with quite the Italian collection is willing to let this beaut go fer RM85k. Previously, me urged ye to not let something as trivial as PRACTICALITY to stand in the way of motoring nirvana. Now, even that's become a fooking non-issue.

Note: Very few of these sports wagons were imported into Malaysia, so this is a fooking rare ride. (And before anyone starts bout spares, its a 156 la, so nay fooking issues . . .)

ps: Me has already successfully racuned one of me colleagues who has signed up fer a 1997 20vt Coupe. Next on list is other colleague & to stop me own brother from buying something BORING!

AD: Me must say station wagons are the ugliest machines on wheels ever created by man...but this one, looks good... for something which has virtually no chance of looking good, these fookers have definitely pulled it off. bravo.

at the moment, can't afford another car lah... but yes, good price.

PS: Check out me blog when you can.

Yang Amat Berusaha Tuan Sec-Gen Forza Italia (Cawangan Puchong) merangkap president dlm naungan,

chief, design as usual, agree with achilles - never seen a wagon that hip. to-date i considered the forrester the closest thing to suave grease-machismo a drive can achieve in wagon..but this is certainly somethin' else is it not? and pretty well maintained to add. never quite caught on to the wagon concept, but i can relate to to its level utility. had a friend who got his fingers dirty with a M-BISHI AIRTRAK. power giler. but he seems to call it an MPV...er..looks like somewhat of a wagon too..but arghh..no i think i got it confused.

thanks for info.

appreciatively,
moz.

anfield devotee said...

mozzer: The signs are all there . . . Apo lagi? Did ye take his number?

j or ji: Rule of thumb fer italians - please don't comapre maintenance to domestic or Japanese cars.

However, when compared to similar class of vehicles such as vw, audi, bmw, merc etc, alfa / fiat ok lagi.

Memang stylo d fooking milo bro. Ye cannae do better than this fer a family car. Unless of course, like me, ye consider a coupe a family car . . . Mwuahahahaha!
