Been driving mine all day. Venice to pick up RexCars and then touring the area together. Lovely weather and just a nice day. ciao jc

Mother nature in the DC area must be an Alfisti. Today was a beautiful summer day and a perfect day to drive the Alfa.

I propose that on Sunday June 24, 2012 we all take our Alfas on a nice Sunday drive to show Marchionne that there is support from enthusiasts for Alfa returning to the USA.
See it worked, Alfa is back in the USA!

So, this Saturday, June 24, be thankful and drive your Alfa

Looks like I am driving the Blue Car to Syracuse and back tonight.

I guess that doesn't count unless I don't get back until after midnight.

Planned to take my green '67 Ti to a Cars & Coffee tomorrow morning, but the crappy summer weather (warm rain) will keep that from happening. Thrilled to be living in DE. This is the same car I took to the Rhode Island AROC convention in 2015 (see post 47). The Ti is running great now that it has a 4.10 LSD with Outlaw brakes all around. Also just replaced the Bonaldi booster, so hopefully reliable for a while.

Time to wake up your Alfa from winter hibernation! Only two months until Drive Your Alfa To Work Day.

This year June 24 is a Sunday so it will be called Take Your Alfa For A Sunday Drive Day.
