... then under, then over then under and finally over their heads as it comes to rest

Cabin held up well, and it is a good thing for Alfa Romeo as now another unit is bought (by the insurance company)

The speedo is reading 70mph... Was probably going faster than that prior to impact(s)

Almost looks like the roof didn't hit the ground on it's flyover. I'm sure his insurance company is not pleased.

Past Alfas...
59 102 Touring (first Alfa $500 running)
65 Sprint GT (2nd Alfa, $500 daily driver)
102 Sprint (never did anything with it, but wish I had)
74 Berlina (first new car - now certainly rusted into oblivion)
61 Giulietta Spider G-Prod Race Car (where is it now?)
84 Spider Veloce (rarely drove it, so sold it)
86 Quadrifoglio (Dull car - no more 115s for me)
1971 Montreal "The Full Monty". Fair winds and following seas

Current Alfas
59 102 Touring Roadster - restoration complete, enough Alfa for any rational man. Or irrational, for that matter
Oops. Add to the "present" list, 10204 01488, 2000 Touring Roadster project

And past...
Two 1946 Stampe SV4C (c/n 294 "Rocinante" - wife's favorite airplane. RIP), and c/n 235 "La Bon Temps Femme" (gone to a new home, but never forgotten)
Zlin 50LA (+9 -6 gees, titanium spar, 1200 lbs, 260HP rumored to now be in Brazil)
1946 Luscombe 8A
Starduster Too (recently spotted at the Nevada City, CA airport - over 20 years and an entire continent separating it from our stewardship in Binghamton, NY)
1955 Cessna 170B (wife taught me to fly tailwheel in this)

And present...
64 Mooney M20E ("Rambo". My faithful steed for over 40 years) Over 55 years old, and just returned from a trip to Argentina in him
Newest in the fleet
1967 Piper Super Cub on Wipline amphibious floats (a true "all terrain vehicle")
2010 Triumph Thunderbird


You can snap roll an Alfa only one time...

Repair ? That became a parts car very quickly.

Was the owner anyone we know on the BB? Probably afraid/ashamed to reveal his name.

From the Giulia Forums.com website, member Kanundrum, posted,

"I was just talking to the dealership that sold this car a few days ago (Hendrick Alfa Romeo in Cary, NC). He told me about this incident. The guy crashed it on his way home from the dealership with his son in the car. Everyone was OK, he even went back and put a deposit on another one."

Second verse, same as the first...?

Over his head already in the drive home. Sigh. I suppose one could say, don't people practice just driving the car normally for a while to get used to how it feels, and then slowly increase the performance envelope as he gets familiar with it? Still, having said that, though, we don't know what really happened, so...

Really a shame in any event. Glad no one was hurt of course
