What Is An Alfa Romeo?

For many of you those are the first words you say when I mention I bought an Alfa Romeo. So in  the interest of a quick education on the subject I put together this post for you.  To those in the know, you can enjoy the pictures I've attached that I took at Watkins Glen in September 2016 during the vintage races. And I think all will like the video presentation by Alfa Romeo CEO, Reid Bigland.

Here's a nice overview on the company and its racing heritage so one can develop an appreciation for this exciting brand. It is very good news to the ears of  Alfa lovers having them back in the US as the article below points out.  Be sure to play the video embedded in the article as well:

So now you have a little background - here's a sample of some of their race cars.  Beauty and grace in motion!  Enjoy the gallery of photos.

And here's a street version spotted at Festivals of speed in St. Petersburg

I wish I had more to show you - these are beautiful cars!  More to come in future posts as my camera finds them.
