The wife and me took her Fiat 500c to the Italian car show at Hardwick Hall in Derbyshire , we had a great time with some absolutely gorgeous machinery on show , here's just a very small selection of over 250+ cars which were there , we shall definetly be attending next year .

Jim I've never had an Alfa , it's a car I've always wanted but never had , back in the day I came very close to getting a V6 engined 164 or a 75 . Damn why didn't I do it back then :cry: .

I know what you mean Mark. I've never had an Alfa but the desire to own a 166 (or any Alfa with that heavenly V6) is always very strong...

It's the most musical and harmonious engine I've ever listened to. And it looks good too... 8-)
