Well you raise a good question. When I was in Monterrey Mexico about a year ago I saw an Alfa dealership. At the time I remember looking at their website and it was tied to General Motors. After GM paid big money to get out of their relationship with Fiat I noticed that the Alfa Romeo link to Mexico no longer works. And while I had briefly pondered purcashing a car in Mexico and driving it back to Louisiana, I gave this idea up quickly when I realized warranty service would be impossible, well without driving it back to Mexico.

Where were you when you saw that GTV? In the valley theres some old lady who has like the exact same car, I see her driving all the time but never have a chance to see where shes going to offer her some cash for her ride! lol
I want to follow her but never have a chance too and dont know if that is a good idea.. One day im gonna see it on the side of the road for a For Sale sign for like 2k? heheee my wish.

Go granny go granny go granny go.

It was in Santa Monica, but across from a church so it might have been an old lady from the valley going to a wedding or something.

Yep ... We passed by the local alfa dealer here in Gent . A red curtain was hanging before the window to hide the 159 ... The text says : The new Alfa is born , confident ,... and then there's us in the window ... I thought it was a nice wink ...

I was watching the news on TV and they were talking about building fast toll lanes on the 680 highway in the fremont area and they were showing traffic driving by and I saw a Silver 74ish GTV2000 on the 680 freeway.

I was driving my Spider into work this morning at 6:00 am and what should appear ahead of me but a nice white S4 Spider. We managed to get a few seconds to chat at a red light and then we followed each other off and on all the way down through Fort Worth.

Merlyn it was nice to meet you!

This is exactly why I should keep my camera in the car

This morning around 6:30 I saw a silver GTV6 with sweet sounding exhaust on Red Hill and Dyer in Tustin.

I saw a beautiful red Giulietta Spider on vintage plates drive by last week leaving Mona Vale, Sydney.

I doubt it would be anyone on the BB but OH MAN what a site to see!!
