Every once in a while, timing works out just perfectly. Three of the Alfanatics, while visiting the CMH Alfa dealership in Hatfield Pretoria, just happened to be there for a special moment. It was at this very moment that we stood by to witness Mickey, a brand new Giulietta QV owner, take possession of his car for the first time. In all honesty we were just as excited for him as he was!
While chatting with Mickey, a professor of chemistry as it turns out, we found out that this was not his first Alfa. He had actually tried many makes of cars before making Alfa his manufacturer of choice, starting his passion with a 145, shortly follwed by a 156 JTD. All great choices if you ask us. These cars had impressed him so much he knew he’d definitely be coming back for more. In fact, he was so sure that this new Alfa would be everything he dreamed of, he didn’t even test drive his new purchase to ‘keep the first drive special and not ruin the surprise’. Now that’s passion!
Quite a special occasion. Not only were we witnessing the inclusion of the beautiful Giulietta into his family, but also the first experience behind the wheel. We were so moved by his actions that we had to immortalise this moment in a photo.
Naturally we had to do our part by giving the Professor and his wife two of our first prototype t-shirts so that, even when not in his Giulietta, the world can know what Alfa Romeo means to him. Another great Alfa inspired story, and another great reason to keep the passion alive! Professor Alfanatic, we salute you.
