Year before last I had both Alfas there, with a shade canopy on poles, information boards on easels, and free champagne for visitors.
At one point we were sitting under the gazebo, with glasses in hand. A golf cart with three Boy Scouts came whizzing by right in front of us, attempting to navigate the narrow gap between one of our information easels and the Touring 2000. They wiped out the easel, breaking a leg, but thankfully didnt attempt a last-minute swerve into the 2000.
They slowed, looked over their shoulders, said "sorry about that!", and kept rolling.
Humans are entirely overrated as a species.
But, that's why I carry stated-value, classic car insurance.
I agree. Call your insurance company, and let them subrogate.
