Alfas on Route 66
In the summer of 2011 we drove a Giulia Super from New York to Monterey California for the vintage weekend via the Lincoln Highway. The trip back was on various other twisty, scenic and mountainous roads. The summer of 2013 we'll be doing it again only this time we'll be getting our kicks on Route 66.
Historic Route 66 – The Mother Road. A stretch of highway that moved so many Americans and is now seen as a way to travel back in time. Our transporter will be a 1973 Alfa Romeo Giulia Super. Route 66 terminates in Los Angeles but our goal is Sonoma California where we plan to attend the 2013 Alfa Romeo Owners Club national convention.
As the planing for this trip has developed several other Alfisti have expressed interest in; traveling with us for the entirety, following along for a shorter stretch, or simply meeting up with us along the way. We've set up a website where we are documenting our preparation and eventually the stories from the road when we set off on June 23rd 2013.
On the website there is also a maps section that includes a real-time map of our current location (active only on the trip), so even if you can’t physically participate, you can travel virtually along with us. In addition this section includes our route including the points of interest we plan to see.
If you've got some suggestions on places we need to see, spectacular roads to drive or if you want to meet us along the way please let us know with a posting here or via the website.
As we did the last time, we'll be posing here as we prepare and eventually from the road.
