Alfa Romeo



For some days, this nice Alfa Romeo, was asking for a paint evertime I got back home. Today was the day. No wind, sun from the back and in the right place! Behind is the old water tower. Perfect happy time. Thank you Dennis and Mitchell (sons owner car) for the time spend answering my questions about the car!

From the other side of the car there is a collection of stamps since 2005 of the participation in the racing festival here in Holland. The 76 that you can see in the door, was the age when the owner died. It can go easy to 100, 110 km/h and it have been traveling to Italy, to visit the main city of Alfa Romeo's. No garage, no special treatments just a power machine ready to drive with style.
