The preference for Alfa Romeo's character traits passed from father to son at Harm. It didn't stop with dreams, both father and son came into possession of classic purebred horses and the greatest possible satisfaction is still noticeable when Harm talks about his youngtimer, the Alfa Romeo 155 Twin Spark. About its performance, about its comfort, about its design. But his enthusiasm – during the chance meeting – was also contagious.

This stunning Alfa Romeo 155 Twin Spark has been in his possession for 18 years now. The mileage indicates 320.000, of which he put 200.000 pleasantly on the clock. Now the counter goes slower because it is now a 'storage copy' that still drives well-maintained small trips. His daily car is of course also an Alfa (159), which will not surprise you. Despite the fact that Harm is very careful with his car, he does not shy away from putting his 155 to work every now and then. Last summer, for example, he happily went on holiday with this beautiful Alfa Romeo (with a caravan on the prosperity knob).
His Alfa is a Twin Spark with a 1,8 L engine and a modest 126 hp from the year 1996. So the youngtimer is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year. The condition of the car is perfect, the photos are proof.
Harm: “Driving pleasure is the most comprehensive satisfaction factor for me, for me the model has allure. The somewhat angular carriage has a striking appearance and makes it typical of a child of the 90s. Because you don't see much of it in daily traffic, it has also become an exclusive way of (hobby) transport. It invites a sporty driving style, especially because the engine eagerly hangs on the gas. It's just a car that's different from other cars. For me, this stylish Alfa Romeo 155 is the source of intense satisfaction and satisfaction.”
It is now clear that Harm is attached to his Alfa Romeo 155 Twin Spark, the motorist heart of Harm and his father keeps the hobby alive. He experiences the attention for his beautiful hobby car as an extra bonus when owning it.
