Nice story! It must've been really lovely driving these beauties back in the day. I'm glad I brought back the memories.That alfa brings back found memories of my first Alfa. It was a 57 veloce that I got in 61 when I was doing flight training in Pensacola. It also was white with a red interior and ran like a bat out of hell in those days. It was also a chick mag, especially in my dress whites. I kept my baby till 69 and whish I had it today. I ran porsche's after that until 80 and got out of sports cars until 3 years ago when I found a 73 spider and am doing a frame off resto. I drive a 86 spider quad and have now 3 other spiders in various stages of resto. I still have found memories of the old 57 and the beach and racing down the highways of florida then California. Thanks for the memories!
Great quote! I'll have to borrow that."Nothing significant exist under Italy's sun that is not touched by art."
The Classic Italian Cookbook
That goes for cars as well as food.
Great cookbook by the way.
