Red Milano in Sonoma & Marin Counties California

Red Milano Verde with California plates southbound on Hwy 101, passing through Petaluma about 1230. Gave the "thumbs up" sign- from the driver's seat of my wife's VW Passat, of course, while on my way to get my new-to-me 1974 Spider to the DMV so I could have it inspected. What are the odds- my inspector had owned a 1978 Spider! My car sailed through.

Saw my first Alfa today in Broken Arrow, Ok. I was driving my white '91 Spider South on 145 East Ave. and a black Spider, not sure what year but prior to '91 was driving North..we both saw each other and flashed out lights...nice to see another Alfa...also noted that of all the spider/roadsters I saw today we were the only ones with out tops down...sad, since it was beautiful...sunny and 68 degrees.....if black spider reads this we need to get together and compare cars and thoughts about them....

Hey THEMICK, There's a bunch of Alfas around Tulsa. Drop me a private message and I will fill you in. I have a 91 S4, too, by the way.

Yes - there was only one to see (and it's a blue, series 2).

Spotted a cream colored Spider with the top down headed west bound into Downtown L.A. on the 10 Fwy last night about 7:50pm. My wife and I had plenty of opportunity to take a picture but her point and shoot camera was to slow for night time photos. The driver appeared to be enjoying the evening drive with the rag top down in this warm climate in L.A.

What is it about Berkeley, CA?

Saw seven Alfa's on the road yesterday afternoon in Berkeley, CA. Four Spiders, a GTV & two GTV-6s. What is it about that town?

They're everywhere in the Bay Area - I don't even bother reporting on the 164s and spiders I spot everyday (too common around here!, and GTV's are getting dangerously close to that as well!). Yesterday was Andrew's Berlina Register tour in Berkeley - so you probably saw a few of the participants from that. Check the club forum for pics from that.

BTW: I also spotted a silver GTV-6 yesterday in SF (I see it often in Japantown, with license "ALFAART")

Jeff's right, Alfas are really common in the Bay Area. In my neighborhood in Oakland there are at least 5, my GTV, 2 red Duettos, a white Sprint Speciale and a Giulietta Sprint Veloce, among the 2 Lotuses, a beautiful Triumph TR4 and TR3 and assorted Porsches. This place is pretty special.
