Spotted a red S3 Alfa Spider going West on 580 near the castro valley BART Station. I was on Bart, so my hollering and waving would probably go unnoticed by you.

Yeah - we've got Alfa's everywhere here - which is why I never post sightings! I'd have to post a daily "summary list" of Alfas spotted on my commute (SF to Emeryville - East Bay), which would get old after awhile.
That said - I do find myself actively spotting them where ever I go (much to the displeasure of most passengers).

Silver Quad

June 20th 2007, around noon;

Someone parked a Quad (w/ WI plates) right next to my '91 at CSU-Pueblo. Are you on the BB?

- Look through the (end of the) Post a pic of your alfa! thread, I think I spotted it in there earlier today when I was browsing the boards.

EDIT: Looks like I was wrong, here is the post I mentioned

Imported GTV

My wife used her camera phone to grab some shots of this newer GTV on University Drive in Huntsville, Alabama.

Spotted a black Milano Verde in Walnut Creek off of Treat road turning into the bart station. I was in my pickup at the time right behind it at a light. I think I have seen this car before the last time I was in the east bay.

I saw a red 89 Spider while on a trip broken down on the side of the road. I stopped to help. The engine cranked but wouldn't start. Found oil in his coolant. Beautiful car though. Was near the rest stop on I-40 at the Warsaw exit. I think the owner was from Apex, NC.

Trip to NYC

Yesterday in Brooklyn, NY on 17th Ave near 64th St (If I recall) a white 164 parked in front of a repair garage.

-And, later that afternoon-

In Greenwich, CT I was on I-95 north, and spied a red Duetto driving on a street parallel to the highway, I think US1. I caught only a brief glimpse, as traffic on the highway was moving too fast to take a long look.

Alfas in Italy and Finland

I went to Europe last week for business. . . yes, really!
I saw the first two in Italy (big deal, they are all over the place there) and the second two in Finland.

Non Alfas from same trip, but also Italian.

I saw the Ferrari in Italy and the old (any one guess the age?) Fiat in Finland.

Notice that the Ferrari is taking up two parking spaces at the Marco Polo Airport. Not sure how it is in Italy, but that will get you "keyed" here in the US.

We've only got a handful of Alfa's in Grand Rapids, Michigan, but I saw a red
'84 Spider on Friday, and then a red '87 Milano drive past my house on Saturday.
