I Can’t Drive 75: 1987 Alfa Romeo Milano

DT’s Italian Week Continues: We all have hidden secret desires. Things that we like, but don’t admit to our friends.  Yours, yes you dear reader, is watching that video of Britney Spears belt out Oops I Did It Again in her red vinyl body suit, but mine is worse.  Far worse. You see…I have a secret crush on a certain car that…well…not many people agree…but I happen to love the shape of the Alfa Romeo Milano. There, I said it.  I admitted it. And I FEEL GOOD ABOUT IT. IT’S LIBERAT—we interrupt this DT posting and bring in a new writer. The Alfa Romeo 75 was badged in the US market as the Milano between 1985 and 1992.  The Milano has the honor of being the last car released by Alfa before they were acquired by Fiat and the name 75 was in reference to the 75th anniversary of –LIBERATING. I’M BACK!!  YOU CAN’T KEEP ME FROM TELLING YOU HOW MUCH I LIKE THE LOOKS OF THIS RIDICULOUS CAR AND I WANT TO OWN THEM ALL. Find this 1987 Alfa Romeo Milano offered for $3800 in SF Bay Area, CA via craigslist. Tip from FuelTruck.
