My Weekend in Palm Springs

Finally got a weekend away with Jenn. We went to the second annual Desert Classic Concours d'Elegance in Palm Springs. The weekend began with a quick drive out to Palm Desert in Margherita, our GTV6 Balocco. Lunch on El Paseo at Daily Grill. Sitting in the sidewalk patio enjoying a Newcastle, watching the people and the classic cars parade by. Dinner in the evening at a fellow Alfista's home in La Quinta along with Alfa owners from LA, OC and SD. Some excellent wine and fellowship. The next day was spent on the green lawns of the O'Donnell Golf Course.

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.

AROCSD Events

It's almost time for the new Desert Classic Concours d'Elegance in Palm Springs. It's going to be March 1. Maserati is the featured marque, but the news is that the first Ferrari chassis built as a single seater, Formula 1 race car will be on display for the first time in decades.

San Diego Alfisti will be driving up through the coastal mountains to the Palms to Pines Highway and then down to Palm Desert and up SR 111 to the O'Donnell Golf Course. There will be a Car Club Corral so we can pitch our lawn chairs and picnic, if we so desire.
