Matthew’s love of his beat up Alfa Romeo GTV6 has been chronicled in the short film Alfa Male from Australia’s The Thin Black Line. Presented as a sort of 1980s style love story with a decidedly Bond bent about a man and his car, Alfa Male touches on all the reasons why the 80s era Alfa Romeo remains a classic driving machine even when it needs rust repair, new locks and a paint job.
