A Date With Two Alfa Romeos

I'm not usually a morning person, but a few days ago I woke up at the crack of dawn, downed an espresso, grabbed my cameras, and hauled my way towards Ocean Beach. I was meeting with Steve from GTO Engineering to capture the morning with a couple of Alfa Romeos in San Francisco. When I got there, I was introduced to two beautiful examples of Alfa Romeo at its peak, a 1967 Duetto Spider and Giulia coupé, both in varying shades of a classic Italian red color. The Giulia was in pristine condition, an excellent example of the car and a tribute to classic Italian sports cars. The Duet, on the other hand, was a bit of a different story, as it had seen better days. San Francisco is a tough city to own a car in, let alone several cars, and because of this, the Duetto was parked outdoors for much of its adult lifetime. Despite this, it was indeed refreshing to see a car that was driven regularly and put to its uses, rather than one that was in immaculate condition but spent its life in a garage.

An Early Morning at Canepa Design

I can never understand why car folks insist on getting together at the crack of dawn, but once in a while I'll convince myself to do so and make it out to some events. Nestled in the dens Santa Cruz Mountains, Canepa Design boasts one of the most impressive car collections out there. On any given day, they'll have an handful of Porsche 959s, 917s (in various trim), BMW M1s, and 300 SL's, all just casually laid out throughout the shop's showroom and garages. Here are a few shots from this past Saturday's Cars & Coffee event. Hope you enjoy them.
