Tuesday, July 15, 2008 ... Alfa Romeo

sleek_alfa_romeo
In a comment about the Karmann Ghia--thanks, Snapper of Gabriola Daily Photo, for the correct spelling of that neat little vehicle--Steve from New Orleans Daily Photo asked where I'd found the Volkswagen product. One block from my work is Bright's where I often photograph autos left there for their services, like this Studebaker Avanti. The sleek factor certainly shows up in these two beauties.

Here's the same Alfa Romeo outside Bright Auto Upholstery.

That must be a great shop. The the cars outside is a great way to advertise. If the owners trust leaving classic cars there, it must be good.

You're right, Jim, but I don't know where the cars go after work hours. I suspect some of them are parked on the lot across from Bright's and on one to the right of the building, as seen in this photo.

Great classic car! I'm back now after being gone awhile because of illness. Will return often!

That Studebaker was the cream of the Studebaker crop and I rode in them many times as a friend of our family thought Studebaker was the car to own and he owned them. I think they were ahead of the times.

Thanks for the many visits to my blogs and for the comments you always leave.

Love these old cars. A friend of mine had a Car'Mon Ghia back in the 70's, it was pretty cool.

I just like classic cars. The shape and colours, as they say, they don't make them like that anymore.
