I just returned from C&C. I got there late (around 9am) and many people were leaving, but still an impressive collection of cars considering it's only March. Ferraris, Vipers, Porsches, VW bugs, BMWs, a Lotus, an Austin-Healy and others were still there when I arrived. Ed, I asked if there was a Lancia Scorpion earlier and was told I missed you- sorry about that. Apparently people show up around 7am; kind of early for me, but I am going to make an effort to get there earlier in the next couple of weekends.

Well, guys, I am two for two on this event. This time after the rese of you left I went to start the car and there was an ignition issue. Battery is fine, but everything goes dead when I turn the key, so I am sitting here waiting for my toe. Luckily, I already had the appointment with London for Monday, so I'm just taking it a couple of days early....

Hopefully the third time will be the charm.

Reed, sorry to hear about your problem. Hope it is a simple fix.

Ed, I missed it this morning because I am waiting for the washing machine repair guy (8-11am appointment and just called now at 12:45 he's on his way).

Photos from Italian Cars & Cappuccino Event

Here are some pics of Alfas from yesterday's Italian Cars & Cappuccino event. Good turnout- about a dozen Alfas as well as other Italian cars including Ferraris, Lambos, Fiats, Maseratis, and Lancias.

I would like to see this continue on some semi-regular basis. The turnout was good, people were friendly, and the best part was not having to wake up at o'darkhundred to get there. I am not sure if once a month is too much given the Saturday morning C&Cs are weekly. Perhaps once every Spring, Summer and Fall?

I woke up too late for Katie's Cars & Coffee this morning and decided to try Landsdowne, but nobody was there (around 10am). I thought this started as a first Saturday of the month thing but grew to an every Saturday post-Katie's thing. Does anyone know if the Saturday morning Cars & Coffee is still happening at Lansdowne?

Hi ;
don't wish to hijack the thread but since there's so many folks interested in Alfa-related events, we wanted to announce that our DC,MD,VA and SO. PA Alfa events will be posted on the new DCALfas-BB forum: DCALFAS- Alfa Enthusiasts of DC, MD, VA

Event announcements will be sent by email as well: you can sign up here DCAlfas.org

There will be at least 4 "winter" driving events (non-competitive) starting Sunday Nov 20 with one each in Jan, Feb & March. (Most experts say its preferable to do an extended drive with your Alfa at least every 30 days, than to lay it up for the winter).

DCAlfas also publishes a free e-journal with Alfa news, historical info, tech and other articles.
