That's because that is Grandpa's car!

We JUST now got home from our two weeks in California. I have more pictures to post and I'll get them up tomorrow. I'm just wasted now and want to sleep in my own bed. You know the feeling................... What a great time on the Monterey Peninsula. We'll have to have another dinner next year. At least to me, that was way too much fun getting to know a few of your guys up close and personal.


GREAT PICTURES GUYS! THANKS!!!

At least 2 good reasons for kiddo to visit Prescott, AZ.

Speaking of ... welcome home. Hope the business trip at the end went well.

Sorry I missed you last Sunday. I had just driven out onto the race course at Laguna Seca when my phone said you were calling. You would've just heard wind noise + yelling & laughing. A blast.

Look forward to more of your Monterey photos. I'm still on Tues shots at Carmel's Concours. Many more from the rest of the week ahead; good to have you back for 'dueling posts?!'

Is this Alfa cool or what? I spotted it in the Paddock on Saturday afternoon.

JoAnne-- Good to see you back in the photo thread action. ^^ Many aspects of that Alfa are cool. I was told it's >$200k USD. I'm not familiar with it or the new Tesla you posted earlier, but the latter may be preferable, IMHO.

Was also told that there are only two of the new Alfas in the Monterey Peninsula. This info was all from Friday's La Dolce Vita Automobili. I was lucky enough to be befriended by the Alfa Romeo club, one of whom had a gorgeous Porsche on display. Good group; they knew how to have fun at a Concours event. I'll have more photos of another shade of the above Alfa later.

In the meantime, since the 'dueling photos' have kicked back in , here's one back in the Carmel park...

One of Robert's Best Friends is an Alfa freak and you are right, they know how to have fun. I always loved the little Guilia's myself. Did you know all you need to keep an Alfa running is a Hanger, Duct tape, Rubber Bands, a hanger and a brick?

Here are a few more taken on Firday in the Paddocks before they got way to crowded:

Hawaiian Tropic 935. Where are the bikini clad girls?
Robert was at Riverside Raceway the day that Rolf Stommelen died. He actually was taking pictures of him and then the crash. Of course it was not in this car, but it was in a 935...



Anyone know what this is?

A serious, serious question, that I'm glad you have broached. We definitely need a formal enquiry.

Any brave RLer's volunteer for this investigatory panel?
