My brother "stole" my car ....

Well he actually asked for a Sunday drive, he went up the mountain and down by the sea to a small town called Kardamili.
He later explained how enjoyable the drive was, he did it early in the morning with empty roads and had the opportunity to push the car on the curves and smile at the agility and accelaration on uphills, he trusted the powerful and inspiring brakes on downhills and on his return he even had the time to share some pictures with me.So I take the opportunity to share the pictures with all the fellow alfisti here on Alfa BB.
Please enjoy, Takis.

Triti pantofla, ante peta to. Den kanoume edo tipota reeeeeee.

“Alfa Romeo is not merely a maker of automobiles : it truly is something more than a conventionally built car. It is a kind of affliction, an enthusiasm for a means of transport. It is a way of living, a very special way of perceiving the motor vehicle. What it is resists definition. Its elements are like those irrational character traits of the human spirit which cannot be explained in logical terms. They are sensations, passions, things that have much more to do with man’s heart than with his brain”.

~Wonderful~

I took a similar early morning drive in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, the scenery wasn't quite as nice but a very enjoyable drive nonetheless.

There is something very refreshing and relaxing about being out early before the roads are full of slower cars (and police)!

Beautiful car and pictures! It makes me really miss Greece. I lived in Nea Makri from 1983 through 1987. I would love to be able to come back for a stay. Maybe someday.

Thanks for sharing!!

Well, I`d been waiting for a long long time to take a ride with our beautiful lady... And finally my brother gave me the chance to find the beauty these cars hide inside them.
Accelerating, feeling, pushing on the curves, smelling, dreaming...
Thank you brother. Looking forward to future rides!!

Good work Vincento next time turn off the time and date and I will use it as a screen saver the pic in front of the little blue and red boat was beautiful and when taking photos dont forget about the shadowing effects of surrounding buildings etc
Vincento loved your description of your drive!
Takis love your car just beautiful.
