tipo158,

Does that "tipo158" cognomen have anything to do with the Alfa Romeo "Alfetta Tipo 158?" I am not ashamed to say that my then much younger ears have entertained the full-cry scream of the blown, 1.5 litre, straight-eight. De Dion rear suspension (ala smart) included.

I have been using tipo158 in various forums for the last decade and you are probably the second or third person who has mentioned that they picked up on the Alfetta connection.

I used to own a 76 Alfetta GT and am an Alfa enthusiast. However, I am better known as a stage rally guy and Lotus enthusiast.
