Well... long story short:

Moms stupidly often failing old Renault Scenic reached the end of its annoying life and needed to be replaced. As the mentioned pile of shit wasn't worth much in cash, we decided to go for something similar in age and pricerange. Mom drives like 3-5k km each year. Tops. And she seems to magically attrack dents and scratches, so anything shiny new would have been a waste. After ~2 weeks of checking out one shitbox after another, I eventually found a car that fulfills basically all needs.

So I ended up buying an Alfa, and i immediately gave it to mom. But as its still my car, I'll use it from time to time.

Short facts:

Alfa Romeo 146 1.6 Twin Spark
- 07/1998
- 165k km
- 1.6 TS 120hp
- some electric things and an AC, all working fine
- passed inspection for 2 years in 11/2010

I'd say it needs some minor bodywork, but as mentioned earlier, thats not worth the time it'd take, mom will reverse the effect within weeks ;).

I don't really know why, but as I did all the stuff and bought it, on every paper relating to the car is my name. That makes me officially an Alfa-Owner. Oh shi....

Now go on and make fun of as much as you like ;).

PS: Proof of ownership? Believe it or get lost. Fuck it, i'd rather proof its not mine, but hey ;).
PPS: Yes, its already pre-dented for mom <_<

Its my fucking car. I paid it, its registered and insured on my name and I will drive it if I feel like it. Mom ist just driving it most of the time. Kids post their dads cars here and nobody cares, so please..

I misunderstood Mr. GrouchyPants. The mods have been pretty keen for the last few months on removing "relatives' cars".

Those wheels were introduced on the facelifted 146, the "period correct" ones would be these:

They are available in 14" and 15" sizes, the correct ones for a 1.6 Twin Spark are the 14" ones. The 15" ones were for 1.8 and 2.0 models.

These 15" ones are also acceptable, although they only came with the 1.4 Junior special series:

Or just get the correct hubcaps:
