8C Competizione and 8C Spider Video

This video was said to be playing at the Alfa stand at Geneva above the display.

From the looks of the footage, the two 8C's were on the West Coast filming.

More Alfa Club Stuff

The 2008 Chili Cook-off was a great success. We had more and better chili than ever before. Pictures will be posted soon.

March 29 is the 2nd Annual Alfas at Cars and Coffee exposition at Ford Motor Company's West Coast Performance Auto Group HQ in Irvine. AROSC Cars and Coffee

Bertone Reveals B.A.T. 11 in Geneva

Readers of this blog may know that I recently distributed a link that urged the Italian design firm Bertone to continue with plans to exhibit the B.A.T. 11 concept Alfa Romeo commissioned by Gary Kaberle. Gary was the owner of B.A.T. 9, which was the last of the Berlina Aerodinamica Tecnica. It was first rumored that Bertone was in such bad shape financially that they would not be displaying anything in Geneva at all. It turns out that they snuck B.A.T. 11 in to a special design show.Car Design News. Way to go Gary!!!

Desert Classic Concours d'Elegance Palm Springs, CA

Desert Classic Concours d'Elegance

Jennifer and I went to the Desert Concours with high hopes that there were going to be more Alfas in the Car Club Corral, but our 164 was the only one! There were only 3 others in the whole show, one of which is pretty significant. Symbolic Motors was showing the 6C2500 Villa d'Este Touring. It was magnificent.

We had fun all by ourselves. Misha came along for the ride also. We had several people stop by and talked about Alfas in general as well as 164s specifically. Hope to see more people at the Cars and Coffee on March 29 in Irvine.
