I hate seeing beautiful cars in that kind of condition...

I saw a black 145, a nice silver 145, a 156 2.0l t-spark, a 147 GTA, a white gtv, and a 156 GTA this morning on the way to work, and i wasn't even looking especially.

GTV in CT

On my way to work this morning I saw a beautiful red GTV on Route 58. It was just before the Merritt Parkway while I was heading downtown. It was in great shape. Kudos to the driver! I'll keep my camera ready in case I see this beauty again.

Last night I was in the car with my sister and she spotted a mid 80's Spider. It was pretty ratty but still an Alfa. I still can't believe she noticed it before I did and it was in the same lane right infront of us.

Here's a camera phone shot of a GTV I saw today. A little rust, but very minor.

OH! Saw a Red Duetto not too long ago on Santa Rita. Tryed to chase the guy down, but he was oblivious, i suppose. It smoked a little, but he was driving it like an Alfa and it had beutiful paint. Sweet car!

Be warned though, Alfas can have a strange effect on owners; ‘Alfaholic’ a recognised condition among car enthusiasts

Saw a red S3 Spider turn onto Telegraph Road near Pontiac, Michigan yesterday.

Today I saw a grey Milano heading south on Campbell Road near Royal Oak, Michigan.

I haven't seen an Alfa on public roads in months, then I see two in one week!

Saw a white Duetto with a roll bar this evening on Hines Drive near Dearborn Heights. That's three Alfas in one week!

There were lots of classic cars out this evening.

Did it have Panasports on it? If so, it was probably John Hoards car, the same car that you may have seen at the autocross a few weeks ago.

I spotted a Late model Spider with a bride and groom in it last weekend in downtown AA. Also saw a 164
