Last day with my Alfa 156

  1. Hi guys

    the time to change has arrived... my "road partner" the Alfa 156 which "escorted" me anywhere in the last 4 years, has to come back and being replaced by a Fiat Multipla, completely different car.

    I'd like to share with you one of the most pleasant shots I did with this car, at the Tomarlo pass, on top of the ligurian apennin, October 29th, 2005 (one of my first shots with the old D70s)


    It's quite dark, I know.. amen, brothers!

    Hope you enjoy the new wheels!
  3. I somewhat know the feeling as well. I just parted with my Italian mistress. She was so very sexy when topless ...


    (1975 Fiat 124 Spider)

    Not sure if/when she will be replaced ... but I do miss her!!

    Congrats on the new car!!


  4. Do you REALLY want to see what's next one??? Just imagine it of a showy orange colour..


    this one:

    this is the back:

    and this is the inner..

    I like my life when it's changing! :D :D :D
  5. I always wanted an Alfa Romeo. Those convertibles were the slickest looking cars. Back in the late 80s and early 90s, I handled the corporate travel for Alfa Romeo when they relocated their N.A. Headquarters from New Jersey to Orlando. Loved those 164s, too! :)
  6. Dino:
    If it is not too late, I vote you keep the Alfa 156. Those are very nice cars. While the FIAT looks interesting, especially from the back, it doesn't really excite the eyes and heart the way the Alfa does. In my household, cars are still considered 'new' if they have less than 100,000 miles on them.
    Whatever you decide, enjoy the ride and be safe.
  7. I read in Autoweek some time ago that Alfa is coming back to the USA. Initially they will be sold through the existing Maserati network. The convertible Spider is very nice looking!!


    Nice looking car and probably very practical. Sometimes it's just the right thing to do - be pratical.

    Then, when you get older, you can "play" :smile:

    Again, congrats!!

  8. Hi,

    to me, the multipla (especially the first version with the lights near the windscreen) is one of the ugliest cars ever built.

    But for sure, not everyone has this impression. And if it fits your needs better, go for it.

    All the best

  9. Hi guys,
    a poor quality preview today with colleagues: Brad (Miller) if you see it, the one on the right (left side of the car) is Vincenzo my friend photographer


    I can't keep the car, it's a company car and just the home loan kept me away from the Alfa 159... And yes, Alfa is coming back with its great engines.. I know there's something just for you... a new technology on gasoline engines..
  10. Dino:
    Hard to argue when your employer is providing the car. My employer provides a car allowance for using my own car, rather then take the company car. Fortunately for us in the USA, a car costs substantially less than it does in Europe.

  11. Well, as I said to someone else, I COULD theoretically choosing another one, but the new alfa, the 159, is much more expensive and with an increasing monthly home loan I have to look carefully at fixed expenses.
