I've driven the Biturbo only for almost 2 weeks now. I've posted the Alfa Milano and XR4ti for sale locally.

This is the point of no return!

Biturbo or bust

You should do a day-by-day blog similar to that guy driving a Model T everywhere.

For some reason, I keep thinking about a specific quote.

Both have been sold. The Biturbo is my only car (well, wife still has one)

Do other Biturbo drivers honk and wave when they see you driving yours?

Is the wife's car a limo?
Be sure to check that the rear doors of the limo can be locked.

I haven't seen any others. I think I've only seen one other in my life and it was a Spider.

I figured that when your wife drives (her limo), you could ride in the back with the doors locked.

See, Rusty gets it!
And, he is more keen to his musical artists than I.

So when are you planning on an upgrade to a Shamal or Ghibli? :-)

When I win the lottery, though I heard you have to actually buy tickets to win.

You are a better man than I am. The thought of having to depend on a Maserati Biturbo scares the hell out of me. Those things make an Alfa Milano look Camry-reliable.

Followed.

I, too, had a Biturbo. And I did manage to DD it for an entire summer.

Actually my Milano was Camry-reliable.
