It was a chance meeting. I was in the south of France last week, attending a car launch. And there, in Monaco’s Casino Square, was an Alfa Romeo Montreal. A rare sight even in this part of the world, I gazed at it until its owner arrived, fired up a rather sick sounding engine and wobbled off down the hill towards the sea. So I put a picture on Twitter and invited comments. To my surprise, I got deluged. I thought this was a largely forgotten car, but among those brave souls who choose to follow my ramblings on social media, there remains a very great deal of love.
