Alfa Romeo Century show - Frederick, 6/26.

As you probably know, 2010 is the 100th anniversary of Alfa Romeo. Coincidentally, the Mid-Atlantic region of the Alfa Romeo Owners Club is the host for the Club's National Meet this year. The cars that are coming to this show are unbelievable and are coming from as far away as California. Alfas from the Simeone Collection will also be present. Factory racing team Alfas from the 1930s, the first cars ever to bear the prancing horse, will also be present.

Although this week is full of National Meet events, the concorso is this Saturday, 6/26, at the Stone Manor Country Club near Frederick, MD. I believe it is free for spectators.
Do not miss what may be the most important gathering of Alfas ever in this hemishpere.

If I am not mistaken, Andrew, the one you mentioned is the Alfa Tipo 33 Stradale, my favorite for many years. w/ smiles Jimmy

Andrew,

Jimmy is correct. It is a Tipo 33 Stradale, but I've also heard it called the TZ1. I too am not up on my Alfa models. I went to the event (and the Concours) today to pay my respects to the Alfa name for it's history with Enzo Ferrari.

As I saw these cars I was amazed at how so many reminded me of certain Ferrari models: 250 GTO, Breadvan, 250 GTL Lusso, 312. The Alfa Romeo Montreal reminded me of the Lamborghini Espada. I realize it's all because of the Coachbuilders...but it was really interesting to see.

There was a great turnout at today's Concours. Saw Ed, Ken, Bryan and the Admiral. I really enjoy listening to the stories these guys tell! I could sit there all day and soak it all in!

Here are some pics from the concours everything from Vintage to the Modern! Enjoy.

Thanx for the great pics, BillP00. Did not think that Alfa Romeo was that popular in the States. AR is very popular here in Japan (probably because of the affordability). The event must have been a must see. Great looking background and fine weather make event like this even more enjoyable. Cars of these eras look so befitting with lawn and green backdrops. And the pics were excellent too. The only suggestion I can add is to aim from a much lower angle (driver's eye level or slightly lower). For me, this angle makes cars look even better. Thanx again. w/ smiles Jimmy

Couple from today

I got to the concours field at 6 am. That gave me plenty of time to watch the whole event unfold.

Harlan and Dermett plus others did a great job setting up the event. The Italian embassy reneged on bringing some interesting stuff, unfortunately. They showed up in a mini van.

regards

ken
