1990 Alfa Romeo 164 Lusso 3.0l 12V Auto

Alfa Romeo 164 Lusso 3.0l 12V Auto

First laid eyes on this beauty in the garages of Grinrod Shipping on Cape Towns Foreshore, had been brought in by its loving first owner, a titled diplomat. I think it was 1992 or 1993. It was under a tonneau cover, saw only a few inches of each rim and knew what it was. Thought to myself how the hell will I ever own this particular car.... It was close to £26 000 fully spec-ed in 1990. First time it went up for sale it was snapped up by an avid collector, second time around he sold it to me, reluctantly. That was in 2000. it has been a flawless performer, and still turns heads. I laugh to myself when idiots whose aunts best friends mother-in-laws brothers bastard child owned an Alfa in 1679, and comment that they gave (and still give) nothing but problems, you know, the types who regard high performance home appliances sans heritage as the be all to road performance.
