Do you like it when people use pencils as pointers? Have you ever wanted an in-depth history of the Alfa Romeo logo? Actually, that sounds quite interesting.

What they didn't get right was the idea that Alfa's aggressive marketing could make the 164 a hit in the American market. It was whatever the opposite of a hit is.

Ok, enough of me prattling on. Watch the 164 tackle the roads of Maryland with ease.
