Yesterday I asked you opinion on which car I should buy next. There were four options. Here are the poll results, from most popular to least popular.
52% of you think I should buy the hot looking Alfa Junior with the 2-litre transplant.
31% of you think I’m an idiot.
11% of you voted for the blue Fulvia, which needs a full restoration.
6% of you voted for the red Fulvia
I’d like to say I was encouraged by the vote, but it’s pretty clear I’m almost on my own with regard to appreciation for the Fulvia. And maybe I was a little hard on my description of the red one, which is probably my favoured alternative.
I’m unsure as to what will happen here.
The Alfa is almost too nice for me to buy. That won’t make sense to some, but it makes sense to me. I need something I can improve and make my own. That Alfa’s so nice it’s hard to imagine me making a positive difference to it. Plus, it’s a little more than I want to spend up-front on a car (if I can help it).
The red Fulvia seems difficult to get information about and the blue Fulvia simply needs too much work for the price that’s being asked. Plus, whilst I’m still dead keen on getting one, both Fulvia’s do break one of my own automotive maxims (to be discussed later in the week).
Thanks for your participation, even if you think I’m an idiot . It’s nice to see that lunacy can be recognised for what it is. I don’t pretend that my automotive decisions make sense to anyone but me.
