These are from the past few days:

My friend Jerry's '87 Spider:


A '94 164LS:


A 164S for sale: (The place was closed, I'll go back tomorrow)


A '91 164L:


I don't think spotting your own cars counts, but what the hell.. the Milano and GTV at Will's:


Not an Alfa, but worth posting anyways:


I also talked to some guy with two 164L's. No pictures of those, but I've posted some before.

Alright, if you got to post a spotting dream...

The other night i spotted (in my dream) a black 87 spider, heavily modified...2.0L turbo, it was a pretty amazing dream

One time I saw an Enzo driving down Sunset Blvd in BelAir CA. My best exotic car sighting, by far.

The other week, I went and viewed the collection of the lunatic known as Tom Zat. He has too many vehicles to list, but my favorites were his Disco Volante, Calloway tt Alfetta Sport Sedan, and full race Milanos (because I have Milanos).
Zat claims the Sport Sedan to be Calloway tt #1. I dont know if that is true or not, but I like it no matter the number

I also saw this car. It features Zat's original body kit. I dont really like it much myself...Makes the milano look like a Fox body Mustang imho

I stopped by the shop with the red 164. They said it's not for sale, but I talked to the owner's nephew.. he said he has two Alfettas, and his uncle has over ten Alfas.. they also had this 2600 Sprint in their shop..

Red 164

I have a little auto shop around the corner from me and I've noticed a red 164parked behind their fence for at least two months. I never see Alfa's here in Grand Rapids so I look at it every day to see if it has been moved. I finally got curious today and called the shop and mentioned that I noticed the Alfa hadn't moved in months and would the owner be interested in selling it. He wasn't sure but is going to talk with the owner. Appearantly the car has some "major" engine issues, but it appears to be pretty decent otherwise and it is a 5 speed. Like I need another Alfa!!!!

'95 Saab 9000 CS Turbo
No Alfa's currently in the stable

A 145/146 in Edmonton, whats that about?

Current: 89' Milano Gold(sold)
Next: 164 S

Be warned though, Alfas can have a strange effect on owners; ĎAlfaholicí a recognised condition among car enthusiasts

it was a 146, the story was a diplomat from italy who comes here every two years brings across his newest Alfa.
I guess if you're a diplomat coming over you can bring your car?
I was pretty amazed to see that car...
I was even more amazed to see my dads 164L (the burnt up one) I never thought i'd see her again.

They have a hidden garage that holds an Aston Martin DBS6, a couple ferraris, early lamborghini, an Alfa Romeo Montreal with like 30000 kms on it... and a few maseratis.

If anyone is randomly in Edmonton i'd recommend going there. It's called Ital Motors.

I posted these on the Giulia/Giulietta forum... saw this rusty Spider while out for a drive in the country. It's in Indiana if anyone wants it... couldn't find an owner.

I found this in a side street in the UK midlands. Does it belong to anyone here, or does anyone know the car? It looks very solid but I did not stick around too long in case a very big abusive owner decided he did not want pics taken of his car. Looks like its been standing a while, but if anyone wants me to stick a note on the windscreen, PM me.

And on the 7th day, he made Alfas....

There are only 10 types of people.... those who understand binary, and those who don't.
