Just spent three days making a giant loop from Washougal, Washington down and around Mt Hood to Bend, Oregon, then back through Sisters and home through Portland. NOT ONE ALFA on the road!!! Saw dozens of Porsches covering the 1970's through current. Saw several Lotuses (Loti?). Saw an MGA and two MGBs. Tons of Corvettes. No Alfas.

Many Alfas. All gone, but none forgotten

I'm the one being spotted it seems (I do like to show the old girl still has it over on the boring Japers at times) Boy racers they drive up close so they can read the Alfa badge on rear of mine, because they were still on mom's boob when my car was made and don't know what blew them away !!

spent a week in Gulfport MS for the " Cruising the Coast" event...(last year I think I was the only ALFA there , at least did not see any other)....this year, I saw a Silver 86 Quadrifoglio (I did not have camera at that point) owned by John Hans in Gulfport....then saw a yellow 90s something? Spider in the distance (no picture) and later saw a 90 something? also Spider but gold , drive by.....then a 91 ? White Spider stalled on street next to me.....he thought it was a fuel filter problem (got towed)...but I did get a picture of it before it stalled...car was from Jackson, MS.

This 164, clearly owned by an Alfanatic, was parked for days just a few meters away from my B&B in Budapest, Hungary.

Left a note for the owner to contact me on this BB, which you can see under the driver's wiper arm. Owner never did.

Did not see many Alfas while biking through Slovakia.

Came across this 156 in Pavlova, Slovakia. Unfortunately no one was around to take a photo of me in Dan's (Alfapwr) bike jersey next to the car.

Alfas in Tokyo

A few hours after arriving in Tokyo for some r&r after a business trip to India, a S4 Spider surprised me while I was walking around Hibiya. By the time I got the camera out all I could get was its rear end.

The next day while at the amazing Itoya paper store in Ginza I came across an elderly gentleman wearing an Alfa Romeo hat. He was definitely a car guy, but declined my request to take his photo. He did allow me to take a photo of his hat on a counter with the bemused clerk looking on. Also, check out the blue Alfa in the amazing 3D paper art piece.

And then came across a young guy in his 147.

To continue the Alfa spotting in Tokyo theme, my coworker took this photo of me outside a small car showroom in Tokyo two weeks ago. I usually see a fair number of Alfas when I'm there, but spotting a Spider seems to be a rare find.

Looked nice from my Audi's rear view mirror... hope to see you at One Lap Marin tomorrow...
