[E-Type] Alfa-Romeo Returning To The US?

Fiat has just acquired (for no cash!) 35% of Chrysler from
Cerberus. Fiats motivation is largely to get access to Chryslers
dealer network, so they can re-introduce Alfa-Romeo to the US
market.–

It would probably be easier to reintroduce the Fiat,since they share so many parts with Ferarri.

The Fiat 500 Abarth SS is probably the most fun you can
rightly have in a road car. Amazing little thing!

Chuck are you there?

(no response yet)

I’m glad I’m so far away that I will not be an easy target. :slight_smile:

Although I gotta admit when I saw a few years ago the Alfa
prototypes at Villa d’Este (that year they still had a
public vote the the best prototype, the 8C spider won, I
woted for the race bred coup�) I was also almost on my
knees, they looked good!!!

But would I give my E in exchange for one? Monetarily I
should, but mentally I dont’ think so!

Hello, Chuck, are you still out there?

:smiley:

Assuming the 8C looks as good in the flesh as it does in
pictures, and you and I were standing by it, E-Type titles
in hand…you better have your Glock (or, would that be a
Walther, hmm?) already aimed, brudda!

Ian…lighten up.

It’s called a ‘joke,’ a ‘josh,’ and given the fact I pretty
much abhor excess gun usage and overt acts of gun violence
(and the fact I own only a .22 can-plinking rifle, and not a
Glock) I think all on here, including chuck, know we
wouldn’t kill each other for an Alfa.

I would however, fall on and flatten him, since I
outweigh’em by 4 or 5 stone! The Alfa’d be MINE!! ALL MINE!!!

aaHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

I’ll just have to kill the Canadians with a big ol’ Billy Smith/Ron Hextall
swing of the Goalie Stick.

C’mon guys, this is an 8C we’re taking about here. Work with me! :wink:

I do, Bob, and here’s why (syllogistically):

-The XKE is one of the MOST beautiful cars ever;
-God created all things, right?;
-A guy would never create anything that beautiful-or as
smart as a eucalyptus tree, just so koalas can eat-only a
woman can have that kind of eye to detail (or, at least,
serve as inspiration for such beauty;
-Therefore, god is a She.

Works for me! Only men get so stupid as to make threats in
order to own beauty.

Now, goolsbee…hand over the keys to the Alfa. SLOWLY.

I just googled it to see what all the fuss was about. Tis
a nice looking car but would a 6’3’’ 200lbs frame fit in
it. According to Clarkson on Top Gear, every petrol head
should own one Alfa in their life. Trouble is he says, you
have to cart around a mechanic to make sure you get where
your going. Sound a bit like a jag that I own.

eventually get him? Slowly, but surely.

Fiat’s back? Does that mean I’ll finally be able to get steering

Lighten up? Moi? I’m a non-licensed Canadian gun owner, but
my 1915 Remington Octagon-barreled .22 pump would be no
match for Chuck’s arsenal. Actually, if I did have an
modern 8C I’d trade it for a Spider, just not the one I
last had, with the dreaded Monofarfalla SPICA FI. For an
original 8C, however, I might consider killing someone, but
I’d have to be pretty close. (The Remington is pretty, but
not very accurate, something like the woman who butchered
‘‘America The Beautiful’’ at the inaguration.)–

Chuck,

Is this a joke inside a joke…?
Your URL looks like one of those new Pontiac Solstice/
Saturn thingys.

This is the 8C to die/kill/trade for:
http://tinyurl.com/85uhza

You betcha (Alaska talk) I’d trade all my cars for THAT 8C.

BTW, that was Aretha singing ‘‘My Country Tis of Thee’’
(America) (God Save the King/Queen). Which I judge was an
incredible beautiful rendition and furthered the melting pot
concept of how the United States developed its own music.
This unique American music has become: Jazz, Rock, Gospel
Blues, etc.

Ah, another notch in my music lesson career- coming from a
retired music professor. :slight_smile:

Best wishes,

Shell–

Hehehe…mighta been yet another case of the Internets, not
conveying a ‘’:)’’ when it was meant…my bad, Ian!

As for the SPICA, it was only really dreaded if it wasn’t serviced
properly, i.e., the wee l’il oil filter in it was changed regularly.

My experience with them was, if serviced properly, along with the
engine, they were quite robust and dead reliable.

Wes Ingraham is the guru on them and rebuilds are not terribly
expensive (THAT being a relative statement!).–

The Spider I can afford at least. :wink:
