Films: Never Enough Alfa

Never Enough Alfa

Rather than owning delicate show cars, Alfa Romeo collector Manuel Leon Minassian prefers cars with a bit more gusto. He often buys cars that have been neglected or are unwanted by the average buyer, and he is extremely picky as to how he will bring them back to life. He’s bought and sold countless amounts of cars in his lifetime, and there’s likely not an end in sight. Although he prefers not to mention the exact number of vintage cars he owns, there’s one that he holds very close, a 1972 Alfa Romeo Berlina. Customized to his personal satisfaction, the work in this Berlina hints at remnants of his childhood as a rambunctious Alfa driver of only thirteen years old.

This video tells only a little part of being an “alfisti”. And even this litte part makes me feel that again. Thanks for the awesome videos Petrolicious. Thanks to Manuel for being a future model for us so we may show this video to our wives in the future to prove that we’re not the only maniacs on this planet 🙂 Greetings from Istanbul with the memory of my old Spider.

Love this video, just in the process of rebuilding an Alfa Berlina 2000 we have had in storage for 20 years. Got it running the other day, so many memories and an Alfa that as usual gets under your skin. Can’t wait to get out on the back roads of the Victorian High Country and set it free. I love Manuel’s Berlina and it gives me a ton of ideas…..

Shou ya sheikh, a lot in common, only in a 124 sport coupé and my dearly departed Dad wasn’t in a taxi but twirling on the road….(didn’t see him either…;) ) Drop me a message on FB, I’m rebuilding a Busso and supercharging it, you’ll like it, I’m sure.

In any case enjoyed your video a lot, yalla, greetings from Holland

I like all of Petrolicious’ videos but this could be a contender for best yet. Any chance of a few more pictures of the rest of Manuel’s collection please?
