Every year at the New York International Auto Show, the Saratoga Automobile Museum sets up a display of some of the finest classic cars. This year, the theme was “Italian” – and while there was no Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale do drool over, the collection did not disappoint.
I’m on vacation this week, and it’s a tradition for us to head up to the Berkshire Mountains in western Massachusetts for a nice drive, see some good foliage and eat a lot. On our trip up, I always drive by a striking old red brick garage that has Alfa Romeo’s of all vintages and states of repair. I stopped this year and took a couple shots. I wasn’t sure if this was something you would want to post to TG, but I thought I’d share a garage that I find interesting. The garage in question is Alfas Unlimited, in Norfolk, CT. Back in high school and college I had an ’86 Alfa Romeo Graduate Spyder, red with black top and interior. Fun little car, it broke my heart when its head cracked. It was my sophomore year in college, and we got hit with a serious blizzard. The car was snowed in for a week. I finally went to start her up, and within minutes the entire college parking lot was filled with smoke. Poor thing couldn’t handle that kind of cold. Since then I’ve always longed for a GTV-6. Some day.
