A tale of two Alfa Romeos 'Under the Tuscan Sun'
I was struck by the heroism of my good friends Ana an Anton, who rented two Alfas on #Adventureholix a trip this summer. Here is the whole story!
I was scrolling through my friends' Ana and Anton's blog https://www.adventureholix.com a few days back, and was pleasantly excited to see a reflection on their Tuscany trip - from planning to execution, and end. All the way to the reasoning of choosing an #ALFA for their primary mode of transport. #heroes
In their own words: "I had been anticipating this moment for months, as I was inspired by the articles I had previously read on @Petrolicious regarding this particular Alfa (Duetto OS) and I had also watched the video review by @Matt Farah from 'The Smoking Tire', in which he proclaims that he totally gets the appeal of driving one of these. In my mind this beautiful boat-tail masterpiece of aesthetic design promised to deliver many smiles per gallon with the top-down cruising along vineyards, rolling hills, and Tuscan villas. To fit the occasion I had naturally prepared a gentleman's outfit to suite the car and scenery. Prior to our departure, I even sought out one of the oldest Italian manufacturers of hand-made leather goods in Florence in order to get a set of appropriately elegant pair of driving gloves (Madova Glove Factory)!"
But you wonder, why is the cover photo about a 1985 Alfa Romeo Spider 1.6 in white, and you have been posting photos of a Red 1966 Duetto OS. What do you think happened?
Anton's face says it all.
I would rather be here, now...
