“Hey, hon, BAT auction bombed. Maybe the AlfaBB will be a more sympathetic venue,...” lol
Sorry, can’t help but think you are shaking your head at this point. My sympathies.
I will add that my deep rooted love of Alfa’s was growing up with my Dads 67 GTV. My brother n I would climb in the back, my dad would slide the seat back, n off we’d go. As I got older I’d sit up front n shift for him as he drove to work. My stepmom, sitting in the back, was always amazed I could tell when to shift by listening to the engine. I was 8 n I still have that car, 48 years later.
I’ve got 3 boys, all who were raised around me racing the GTV, catching lizards at the track n causing havoc as only 3 boys can mastermind. I guess what I’m trying to say is memories are priceless n no amount of money will ever replace the experience you share together. Your passion is contagious n your children will absorb it, n laugh together about it ( with you n at you ) n remember it. Ive been lucky to have so many surround cars, motorcycles, surfing n camping. You may think it’s selfish to keep it but I’d say from my experience that it’s far from it. Might surprise you later on how lucky you were that it didn’t find a new home. Life is funny that way. Cheers.
