If you’ve been hanging around The Garage long enough, many of you will know that with autumn, the Berkshire Mountains are a siren call for me. From where I live on the Connecticut coast, Ã‚Â it is a delightfully traffic free drive, and as I progressed northward, it was easy to see the progression of the foliage as I ventured deeper into colder climates. For the car obsessed person in me, perhaps one of the finer pleasures of my drive is encountering Alfas Unlimited, in Norfolk, CT.
As a car geek, I’ve owned a lot of cars, but of every car I’ve ever owned, I am possibly most fond of my 1986 Alfa Romeo Spyder, ‘The Graduate’ edition. That delightful red roadster met its match in the form of a raging Ã‚Â blizzard while I was in college in Lancaster, PA. It got so cold the engine block of my Italian beauty cracked. So my annual pilgrimage to the Berkshires is slightly bittersweet, and with a toddler in tow, a Spyder is out of the question, but an Alfa Romeo GTV sure seems appealing! Enjoy the photo gallery, my friends.
