Welcome to the Alfa Romeo 166 Club Netherlands
A lot has happened since the last textual changes on this page.
There was an unbelievable Italy meeting, together with the members of the
Alfa Romeo Owners Club from the UK. Together, with a nice train of 166's, we
experienced the festivities around the 100th anniversary of Alfa
Romeo in Italy.
Also a delegation had the honour of attending "the weekend"
A lot of organizing, but very worth while!
In the mean while, the Italy happening aside, we have attended a lot of club
and not club related meetings. And every time it shows how much our
among our members, and often no less with their partners. Or
anybody who is,
or has been in contact.
It goes a long way for some members. Cars get lost due to an accident, MOT
even forced sale. But saying goodbye to the club? That is often
(luckily) a step to far.
In some cases the membership gets ended, but the involvement is not getting
And that is the essence of the club, the Alfa Romeo 166 has proven

After all, we are not talking about just "a car", we are talking about the
Alfa Romeo 166! La Bella Machina! A great car, and yes, then it cannot be
any different than that the people driving it, and occupy it, are great
With such a car as the binding force, it is not surprising that it turned
out to be a very close, "cosey" and helpfull club, that if you ask me, is at
lonley heights among the others.
That many more beautyfull years may follow, and that all Bella's may
beautyfy lands roads for a very long time to come.
If it is up to a lot of owners, that is exactly what will happen. Some of
them go a very long way keeping their 166 on the road.
The Alfa Romeo 166, la Bella machina.
A true piece of Italian art by design and luxury. In any case, definately
not "one of the many".
