That was actually the only yellow Alfa 8C I saw in person. The other 6 or 7 8C's that I took pictures of were all red.

Yes it is! I have a picture of a yellow RZ somewhere and one of our club members has a yellow Junior Z which is completely original. I like the yellow 8C. I have a 1:43 model of a yellow one. If I was lucky and rich enough to be able to buy an 8C and you could actually register it here in Australia, I reckon I would go for a yellow one instead of common garden variety red.

Here is my 164 around 9,500 Ft on the top of San Fransisco Peaks in Flagstaff AZ. Sorry not the greatest shots when I am not paying attention to the camera. Had it on the wrong setting. New digital. Use to the old stuff.

Took the kids on the lift to the top.

Completely rebuilt motor, suspension, paint and more... Drove like a dream from Phoenix to Flagstaff and up to 9,700 Ft without an issue.
you can use european plates in arizona?

Yes I know they have made yellow Alfa's for years...

I associate yellow with negative qualities.

Well, it's not the same type of picture that I normally post, but here's my 164L with an Alfa Spider that was sitting in a local parking lot. It has only around 36,000 miles too!

Why negative? I have always thought of yellow as being a bright, sunny colour. It is probably also the safest as far as visibility is concerned.

FINALLY got some good photos of the Spider! A little backstory on the color: I bought this car just over ten years ago with this spectacular non-original "Verde da Corso Inglese" paint job. When I look inside the engine bay I can see the original "Pine Green" on the inner fenders, but this is a much darker color than the original Alfa. After owning British sports cars for decades, I had to fall in love with this color, but it wasn't till a few years ago that I found out where it came from.

A local exotic-car dealership (anybody want to buy a Spijker? :-) had a Father's Day car show a year or two ago, with everything from Lamborghinis and Ferraris to someone's absolutely pristine Plymouth Duster. Big fun! I parked this Spider on the lawn and a few minutes later, a 1967 Jaguar E Type pulled in next to me.

The two cars were EXACTLY the same shade of green. We could have shared touch-up paint, if the E Type had any scratches (which it didn't...) So now I know what to ask for when I finally have the Spider redone.

Here's one with my "other" two-seat convertible in the background:



Another with a better sense of the car's actual color:



They're all on my Alfa Romeo set on Flickr:

Alfa Romeos on Flickr

Check them out! (You might also like the 1933 8C2300 in that set, the one that came in second in the 1934 Le Mans race...)

Wow! Thanks, Murray! I mean, I think so every time I open the garage door, but then I'm biased. :-)

Of course, I've been careful not to show the driver's-side rocker panel in these photos... why, yes, we do have some bubbles coming through the paint there, why do you ask? But when I have that fixed, the paint is going back as close to this color as I can get it.

Thanks again!
