Was over in the Oakland area the other day and saw a couple beauties:

11/22 (~1430 hrs)Red spider on 880. You were on the phone; probably didn't hear me honk.

11/22 (~1300 hrs)Black Spider on 880 as well. I had to take 780 before I got a chance to wave!

Silver 164L at night in Jack London Square area 11/19.

Saw a Milano at California and Castro in Mountain View one morning last week, a GTV-6 on Shoreline, and 164L in San Fran on Friday.

Just because we're not in California doesn't mean we don't ride our Alfa's

What's everyone gawking at in the parking lot photo? A Giulietta Sprint?

Didn't manage to get a photo, but I saw a really nice looking (at least from 50ft) pale lime green (maybe a shade of yellow) Duetto on Sunday.

It was near the intersection of 611 and 202 in the Plumstead, PA area. I think the time was probably 2pm.

I gave the pair in the car a thumbs up before remembering I was in my wife's SVT.

I think one of our members lost a nickle all kidding aside, that is one of 4 pristine cars one of our members has. Maybe he will be kind enough to respond about it

The car in question is a 1960 Series 2 Giulietta Berlina. To the best of my knowledge there are only six other Giulietta Berlinas or TIs in the U.S., and Iím not sure of the Berlina/TI division between those six. This particular car spent most of its pampered life in Rome, was sold to a collector in Holland in 1997, and about a year ago it, and others in the collection, were sold to a dealer in Manchester, UK, which is where I found it. It has 91,000 km (57,000 miles) on the clock and is virtually all original, right down to the dealerís plaque on the trunk lid and the break-in instruction decal on the windshield. Everything in the car works, including the windshield washer that is operated by a plunger on the dashboard.

The quirky thing about the car is the location of the oil drain. All other Giulietta models have two threaded openings in the oil pan, one towards the front of the pan for draining the oil, and the other at the rear of the pan which accommodates the oil-temperature sender. The Berlina, however, has no oil-temperature gauge and thus only one threaded opening in the pan, and that opening is located at the rear of the pan where the oil-temperature sender is located on other Giulietta models. The quirky aspect is that this location is just above the cross member that is bolted to the frame rails, and there is no way to fit any type of 27 mm wrench onto the drain plug. Thus to change the oil one first must remove the cross member. Not a big deal, but I canít comprehend why the drain plug is located where it is.

Not to brag or anything...but I have to take the cake on this one With the exception of about 3 cars, this whole entire lot was packed with Alfas. About 40 alfas and a few more other italian makes.

I find it interesting that everyone (at least in this photo) is huddled around the 47 year old Berlina and not the Maserati As I recall from a prior posting, the AONE chapter is about to gain a member who owns a beautiful 1960 Series 2 Giuletta Berlina

Those GTV's look great... I wonder what the quickest way to Long Island is from the Hartford area?

And for those who like Alfa's and belly dancer's:

Hope I did not hijack the thread! Keep your eyes on the lookout for more alfa's!
