well, hopefully the temperamental car can be sorted out...cats, dog, wife and kids another story.
problem with DC area is that there's no natural "cruise in" places, like drive ins etc....also things are a bit more "high-society" than in many communities...
Ferrrari/Maserati of Washington (out near Dulles) used to host a fair number of events that Alfa people could come to but they've changed ownership and personnel, and don't seem interested in doing much these days.....
I don't see other dealers stepping up....they want to sell new cars and don't see the value in "heritage" events. To some degree they are right in not putting a lot of $$ into the vintage crowd..... not much ROI for them.
I guess that's why the car clubs are so important to the vintage owner...there's no alternative. I think the AROC local club does a pretty credible job for the Alfa crowd....I joined about 4 yrs ago and now have 2 Alfas and get involved in some of the organizing
work. But, there's so many things competing for everyone's time these days....kids, soccer, business functions, school, oh...work too.
hopefully you can get to one of the local events at some point....
