I just was looking through some old photos. I used to work for a packaging company who wanted to demonstrate their large boxes in the new catalogue by parking a car in one. That was my first Alfa from 20yrs ago - quick MOT check says it's not been MOT'd since 2008. I wander what happened to it.

ha!

So, it's real!?

I thought it was made up - I love the colours and contrast snd exposure of it; you'd need a few filters in an app to produce the look of that picture now.

(You could probably do it on Instagram of course- but I'm male and over 40; so I don't know anything about that!)

Were you able to get out of the car??


That image could be your avatar- it's totally original. So: no MOT in ten years: but NOT scrapped??

Haha - I'm the same. Haven't got a clue about instagram stuff.
I didn't drive it in, but I think somebody else did and had to stay inside. I remember they bent the aerial which I wasn't too happy about. Good idea about the avatar! Looks like it only had 70k at the last MOT with no advisories so hopefully it's sitting in a nice dry barn waiting to be rescued. I sold the car in 2000 and it couldn't have had anymore than 20k on the clock. I remember having the gearbox replaced by the dealer in that time due to failed syncromesh. Luckily under goodwill by Alfa as the warranty had just expired. Ahhh the memories!
