Um, I think the Alfamiglia Nordest is headquartered in Rhode Island.

Well if Tim missed the event on Federal Hill last night he missed a good time. You can't beat the aroma of garlic and a whole lot of Alfas.

That explains why I followed an early Alfa Duetto Spyder (round tail) nearly all the way home from Providence last night around 9:00. I was at a (French) restaurant on the other side of the city. But On the way home I hooked up with him and followed. Those tiny tail lights were barely visible in I-95 traffic in the dark, so I ran interference. Turns out he lives about a mile away from me.

I was at Federal Hill Thursday night. That was really well done. I was at Thompson, CT. Yesterday and am at the car show today in Warwick, after a detour to drag something out of a barn in Milford, CT, that I bought.

Great event so far, and we put together a cool story yesterday, comparison testing four Alfa Spiders.

Found it. Crowne Plaza Hotel grounds. Less than five miles from my house.

Took a ride over there in my Miata. Nice event, even though I'm not a big fan of Alfas. Saw Andy Reid there.

Connecticut? That ain't north. You're not north until you cross into Canada.
