Thank goodness we have each other.

I've only sat in the Coupe but I do remember it was so small I was really uncomfortable in it ... I don't know how tall Alex is but I'm 5'10" as a reference.

Realistically, I'd probably buy the Fiat 124 Spider before the Alfa. Or even, heaven forbid, a Miata.

Side note: It's 70 degrees and sunny here, and both wife and I are driving our convertibles today. Although, I always do--I just get to do it with the top down, for a change.

Ack! I confused the Fiat 124 for Spider in your first post. 4C completely slipped my mind.

The 4C is a must have.

Excellent. Thanks for the writeup!

That is a very quick rack. Mine is quick and it's 12.5.

Quicker rack than an ex-hooker?
