Suddenly, here was an Italian rival that not only looked better but also offered decent build quality and was priced keenly to boot. An elk induced mishap suffered by the Mercedes A Class landed the 156 the 1998 European Car of the Year award and sales skyrocketed. Alfa did their best to keep demand high, introducing cars with Selespeed sequential manual gearboxes, improving specifications across the board and even launching the Sportwagon estate variant but it wasn't until 2003 that they really went to work in a decisive fashion.Knowing that the 156's successor, the 159, wouldn't be brought to market until 2006 at the earliest, Alfa had to prolong 156 sales for another three years and made the decision to give the car a facelift.While the Town currently displays its procured art in various places in the Town Hall, it is available to be rented by groups within the community to enhance functions and to give the artists more exposure. Kevin Watermen is the director of parks, recreation and tourism with the Town of Gander, and was the person who got the Town's art procurement program off the ground four years ago after seeing a similar program at work within the provincial government. He is also one of the judges.
