It is St Patrick’s Day, so I thought I’d see if we could get one of the late model Alfa Romeo Giulia Quattroformaggio…wait…that’s not right…Quadrifoglio models offered for something in the DT price range — after all, they have 4-doors and are made in Italy, so they should depreciate like a used COVID nose swab.

Find this 1986 Alfa Romeo […]
The first four leaf clover (Quadrifoglio) appeared on an Alfa Romeo driven by Ugo Sivocci for the 1923 Targa Florio — he came in first place. At a subsequent event in Monza, Signore Sivocci did not decorate his car with the green leaf over a white square, and he tragically lost his life. Future Alfa […]
Saint Patrick was born somewhere in 5th century Roman occupied Britian (England or Scotland based on various sources) and spent a few years in captivity as a young man to Irish pirates, before returning as an adult and missionary to the emerald isle. It is ironic, therefore, that the patron saint of Ireland isn’t even […]
