Don't have any pictures, but I saw a Giulia Coupe in Astoria, OR parked on the side of the street. It was in good shape and for sale, but alas I don't have the money, Alfa Romeo technical know-how or tools right now to take care of a car like that. Several years ago in Virginia Beach, while driving dad's Milano Verde, I passed a blue non-verde, and gave them a honk. I think they were as surprised to see another Milano as I was. Here in Seattle you see the occasional spider. Did a double take when I saw a grey GTV parked on the street in the Fremont area of Seattle over the weekend. I went on a Latin Club trip to Italy in 2000, and saw tons of Alfa's. With no other Alfisti in the group no one understood why I got all excited everytime I saw one. I think I took almost as many pictures of new Alfas as I did Roman ruins. With all the little fiats and motor scooters running around it made the Alfa's that much more beautiful.

Jeff, I think it was the same car that was autocrossing. I didn't see the wheels -- he was headed in the opposite direction in heavy traffic. Driver was probably in his 50's.

Another white on white story. I spotted another white 164 like mine in a law office parking lot the other day. Couple days later I drove by again taking my daughter to soccer camp just as owner walking from lot to office. Boy did he do a double take looking at us in my white 164. I think I met his wife a couple years ago as I was house hunting and white 164 was in open garage so I stopped and visited with her. They had recently moved to VB from SF, CA. I also talked to his mechanic last spring when they were doing a clutch change. Pretty sure same owner, same car.

As we returned from soccer camp at noon that same day I he spotted us we passed on same street white to white as he must have been going to lunch. One small Alfa world I say. What are the odds of this happening again today. Very small because I am using truck to haul fencing today.

Stay tuned going to soccer camp again this morning.

Someone in the Los Altos area has a nice looking Ocre or Piper Yellow (always get them mixed up) GTV...I've seen it exiting 280 at El Monte in the past, and just this morning saw it turning off of San Antonio to head towards downtown Los Altos....didn't get a pic however.

Older gent and a lady passenger.

There was a toilet plunger inside the rear window.

That's always a nice touch. Could this be the new Alfisti status symbol?

i saw this 164 on the lawn of a home near the indy racetrack during f1 qualifying. the homeowners there make some extra $$$ by using their yards as parking lots during racing weekends.

shame about the race though...

Detour photos

Ok, it's not an Alfa...or is it? Maybe it's Alfa's stealth re-entery into the US or their secret test mule. Anyways, this is a picture thread and I don't see a lot of pictures and we did drive by, stop and shoot this so I'm including it.

Odd coincidence. My friend picks me up to go see the Batman movie and he says he just drove by the batmobile up the street. So I of course say show me...wait let me get my camera first. Why batman was parked outside a dry cleaners off Montana Ave. in Santa Monica I don't know.

It's funny that the Batmobile has Super Swamper TSL's. I guess it's so he can not only stop criminals, but also rescue people who are stuck in the mud.

eek

OT - But kinda related.
I was riding my bike to work today and coming in the opposite direction was a brown Fiat Spider with flames and.....it sounded like it had a V8 with either a blower or a cam gear drive - At least it sounded good.
