Well i have been enjoying my Alfa's every day, yesterday I drove the Berlina, today the Giulia, tomorrow the GTV6 and most of the days the Verde with the custom exhaust I installed recently...... I am taking advantage every minute of it. I am already looking forward to spring.

LM - Unfortunately, no. I have an interior office overlooking a panorama of cubicles. However, I'm sure my car is safer in the parking lot at work than in my garage... one of my kids just put a nice dimple in the left rear quarter panel

Besides, if I did have such an office, I would just stare out the window at my Alfa all day

Last night in Adelaide, the minimum was 30.4 deg c.. Should be fine on Sunday for a blast through the hills in the Junior.

I put mine away last week, final drive was on Saturday and it started snowing a little while I was out in the Spider, we were only supposed to get flurries but ended up getting an inch or so. As I was scraping it off the driveway the dreaded salt truck went by so that puts an end to it for this season , I'm glad it lasted as long as it did!

Are you trying to get us jealous?

Admittedly, my 164 is a daily driver even in the winter. I hope to take the Dino out sometime this weekend. I have to move the snowblower first--awaiting the first significant flakes with full tank.

Everyday, whatever may come.
(It's going to be sunny and 78 today. Rainy and 55 yesterday. I just get in, turn the key, press the starter button, let it warm-up, and drive.)

Get out there and DRIVE !

I just drove from Dallas to Tulsa and back in my supercharged GTV6 this week. It was fun!

I took out the Spider on Dec 27th, top up. I might have to take her out this weekend and put the top down. It's forecast to be around 60 deg (F) this weekend.

Spannerman: What's 30.4 degrees in American?

WooHoo!
I still haven't gotten around to putting the Stabil in. Would have taken the Spider out today if it wasn't raining. Tomorrow is supposed to be mid-60s here, but again, raining. If it clears up, I don't think I can resist being able to drive top-down in January. Creepy, though.

yea... with the 60s forecast for tomorrow if there's no rain then you can bet I'll be out again, on the CT roads in fairfield county if anyone wants to run into me.

p.s. I saw a gray 164 in New Canaan today around 5 on the road behind Waveny park....anyone?

Will be a nice day tomorrow. We'll be there with the 164, studded tires and all.
