Unbelieveably (because we generally only see later Spiders around here) I saw a bright-red Giulietta or Giulia Spider (might even have been a Touring; I saw it only out my front window and I was a bit sleepy-eyed) drive in front of my house (High Street/route 81 in Clinton, CT) at about quarter to eight this morning! What a sight to wake up to. Anyone here?

Also exchanged salutes on Tuesday with a gent in a dark-green S4 in Guilford.

Is there hand signal, or other means of signaling in use, we can use when we see another Alfa in our travels that will let people know we're ALFA BB members ??? Ya know something easy that we can use in our non Alfas too....

Good idea...sort of like a "secret handshake" Can't think of anything off hand, besides flashing headlamps-but if someone in a "lesser car" flashes, (er-lights I mean) how would you know that they weren't warning you of a cop ahead or something?

That's exactly what I was thinking of when I wrote my post. If I were in the Spider, I could raise a fist or something, but that wouldn't work in the Jetta. If I flashed the lights, you'd think a cop was around the next bend. A honk of the horn might not get heard, or piss off the guy in front of you..... What's the sign language sign for "B"? We could give two "b's" when we see another Alfa.............

Ya mean like this? The "b" would be easy to use.

Garage
Saw a red, 90's (?)(little spoiler at rear of trunk lid) Spider turn from Rt.60 onto Main St. in Waltham and head toward Watertown, about 5:30 pm Thurs.

I was in a 24' box truck. Oh well.
