Red S3 in Petaluma CA

Red S3 Spider northbound on Hwy 101 in Petaluma CA (northern San Francisco Bay area) about 4:05 PM yesterday. He didn't seem to notice me in my red GTV6 in the southbound lanes.

Red (more or less) GTV in SW Portland

Ok I've seen a sun burned red (almost pink) GTV with primer on the nose, looking a tad rough, but driving in traffic down Terwilliger toward Barbur Blvd. Looks like a winter project came out of hibernation. Who are you?

Silver quad

I'm looking out of my office window in New Canaan CT to spy a silver quadrofoglio in the parking lot behind Locust St Deli.
I'm jealous to be working while someone is out and about in their spider.
I think I'll go for my first run of the season tonight.

Saw a Dark Gray(?) 3 Series Spider this morning, about 10:20AM, heading
north on A1A in Ocean Ridge. I was driving my "Turkis" 1973 BMW 2002tii. This is only the 2nd. Alfa I've seen this year! Alfas are very rare down here in Florida. I've seen, maybe, 4 in almost 5 years.

Dutch/French blue GTV on N. San Mateo Dr. in San Mateo

You drove by as I was pulling into my condo building's garage in my white spider... GTA wheels on the car looked good, as did the color!

OK had to beat em to it!

Was at Callahans this afternoon for some chicken wings and some suds. When I left, I saw that pesky white 164 in the parking lot-- seen em there before but who is it in the restaurant that owns it. So I park my car and go in and start looking around. Is it that white haired guy with the beard? Maybe that younger guy with a bunch of buddies-- what about that good looking girl sitting with 2 other chicks? Hmmmm

So I start asking - I ask the waitress if "glenn" is here -- since I know a dude named Glenn frequents this place AND is an alfa guy from reading this thread. No go. So I ask the bartender and he points out a guy sitting with a suds contemplating life. 'Hey pal, do you have an Alfa"?

And so it happened I finally met Glenn! AND I asked him NOT to post here so that I could scoop him on this!
Cheers Glenn its suds and wings next time!

Very nice looking yellow S4 Spider parked outside a Getty's gas/repair shop on University Ave in Kensington MD on Monday 4/5. Top was down as if stopping briefly, but I noticed it was still there as I returned to D.C. about an hour later...Hope it wasn't serious!

Chicago Area Sighting

I rarely see Alfas on the road but Monday I was on the way to Michigan to check up on the progress of my GT Junior's restoration when I spotted a deep red 115-series GTV on the back of a car carrier headed eastbound along I-80/94 south of Chicago. It looks like someone will be getting a nice "new" GTV for spring.

Caught a quick glimpse of a white 164 north bound on the 215 in the Temecula/Murrieta area as I was driving home this evening about about 8:45.

Best regards,

I was passed by an Alfa 8c Spyder about 3 weeks ago on State Rd. 84 in Fort Lauderdale. A week later i was lucky enough to run in to the owner at a car club meet and documented the meet with photos that can be seen on the Alfabb at the link below:
