No, not at all; I would love if someone could do a similar clip on our beloved 164. These guys of Petrolicious know what they are doing; great shots, great interviews.

Yes, absolutely great; I had not visited Kidston for a while. I'm still waiting for him to finish Our Italian Job (or maybe I have to buy the book?:

Great background story on the recently auctioned collection of Alfas and Ferraris at Retromobile:

A very quotable reply on one of the questions:
Francesco, we learned, had sold his company in the mid-1990s and in semi-retirement had set about assembling his collection of Alfas and Ferraris. Never married and without children, his cars were his life and it was impossible not to share in his bountiful enthusiasm as he talked of his love for building and restoring this collection.

“Why Alfas and Ferraris?” I asked him, always wanting to hear what sparks an owner’s passion for a certain marque. The question seemed to puzzle him.

“What else is there?” Francesco replied, as if I had asked why he chose to breathe oxygen.

The site of Petrolicious is awesome...
And do heaven exist. YES, just take a look at the pictures of all those Alfa's WoW. :shock:

I love the movies too, all of them. The way they are made is uniqe, and it is easy to see hear that they are made by real people who loves cars, and the owners... They are enthusiast to there fingertips.

This is one of the coolest sites, ever.

:D :D :D

Sorry that I keep plugging this site, but it's just too good. This time they take 3 classic car lovers who keep their car in New York. And yes, for sure, one of them is an Alfa: I drive New York

This time no video. They have also terrific articles to read. Check out:The Guide to driving tastefully in Italy. No prizes for guessing which make of car he chooses...
