We've pretty much been digging on every Petrolicious video that we've come across thus far, but this new title, Never Enough Alfa, may be the most charming to date. In it we hear the story of Manuel Leon Minassian, and his self-proclaimed "psychotic" love of the Alfa Romeo brand.

The star of the episode is Minassian's lovely, race-prepped 1972 Alfa Romeo Berlina, which we get to hear and see on the road and driven with verve. But the interview setting of Minassian's completely bonkers warehouse/garage is, itself, worth the five minutes it will take you to watch all the way through.

      One things for sure, Mrs. Minassian isn't going to be very happy when Alfa Romeo finally returns to the US market and finds her husband camped out in front of the dealership, the same way an Apple fanatic does to get a new iPhone. I wonder if there's enough room in that garage for a 4C?

      It is 1972 and I am at the Targa Florio. I am having a sensual delight in an Italian car on a Sicilian road race with an erotic sounding engine. Will someone please make a time machine for me?

        Do as I did, buy yourself a barchetta, currently one the cheapest convertibles. Toss in a Supersprint exhaust and an open airfilter, and the grin simply cannot be wiped of your face. Just like they said on Top Gear, you get the feeling you\'re driving something special, something few other cars give you.

        if fast is reduced to straight line performance you are right, if fast is taken in the overall few you are completely wrong, fast steering reaction, fast cornering speed, late braking thx to low weight etc.. fast is more than 0-xxmph
