I dont agree with there statement at all, Im a car nut, and owned a few cars in my day, i still have the one i purchased in the UK back in 2002, but i do not believe you have to have owned an Alfa to be a real "PetrolHead " a DumbAss statement.

Is the Alfa-Romeo brand dying? I have read that the 159, Brera, Spider and a MiTo is a commercial failure. Alfa sold 200000 cars in 2000, in 2009 Alfa sold only 110000, in 2019 && ?
