Alfa Romeo Alfa Sud
Year: 1976 | Motorization: 1186 cc | Color: Blu Posillipo
Two months after my birth, Dad bought his first Alfa Romeo: an Alfasud 5m blue posillipo with a unique plate TOP01000.
My first memories are inextricably linked to Alfasud. Compared to the cars of the time, the sound was inimitable: the typical Alfa Romeo rumble was also carried in the small Pomigliano. Maybe because I’ve always been biased, but the competitors of the 1970s were anonymous.
At the same time, Papa’s brothers also owned a South: seeing them all lined up was a joy and a rarity in the Savoy capital. In the Turin of “Fiat mother”, the number of Biscioni was not high: inside our garage I remember many Lancias and Fiats and very few Alfa (and we don’t talk about foreign brands). Time passed and love for the brand grew: I had eyes only for Alfa Romeos.
Then we arrived at 12/25/78: Christmas morning around 10:00 am
Dad parks in a double row, my mother goes down, my father too, lights a cigarette and waits for my mother to play my grandmother’s intercom: the undersigned behind on the enfant door. For no one knows what reason, a 128 invades the opposite lane, breaks into the South and at the same time invests my father (later also buffers a brand new Rhythm). Initially the worst is feared, but after a few days of coma and rehabilitation in the hospital, my father’s rock finally comes out and his concern is to repair the Blu Posillipo mileage or sell it?
The second solution got the better: in its place came a brand new 1.3 second series, capodimonte white, registered February 1979 (see photo a few years later with dad and my sister) and already available for immediate delivery at the VAR.TO dealership Corso Moncalieri in Turin. From that moment the association continued and over the years Alfa bought four more.
Today to commemorate the TOP01000, I decided that I could not own an Alfasud: but this is another story…
Merry Christmas to all from “Biscioni34”
