I admit it, I’m a sucker for Alfa Romeos. While the cars have never been known for their reliability or resale value, they are more often than not incredibly security vehicles — look no further than that 8C and the 4C Spider. But Alfa Romeo can’t just get along in the United States market with just the 4C and 4C... Read more...
