Spotted a nice red Verde while heading east on 92 from Half Moon Bay today (it was heading west)...didn't get a picture, but it looked very nice. No one I recognized.

If I had to take a picture of every Alfa I see each day, I wouldn't have time to drive

Must be somewhere between 50 and 100 Alfas I see each day while commuting.

Hehe, i see many many alfa's every day, mostly 147's or 156's though, but saw a beautiful 155 the other day, there is a nice little GT Junior in my suburb, and i often see GTV's.

I'm in Vancouver and if I waited on the side of the road looking for an Alfa to drive by, I would be old and grey first.

Hey, wait a minute, I am old and grey!!

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

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

Seeing an Alfa anywhere in our area of New York is very rare!

just today:

black 164L
red 164S
black 164LS

i see an average of 1 alfa a day during montreal summers, mostly spiders followed by 164's and lastly milano's.

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

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