    Do I see a Sprint Speciale, GTV and maybe a '69 Spyder (although I can't see the rear so it is hard to tell)? Nice shots.

    ...oooh, brings back lots of memories, I've had two Alfa's and three Fiats. My Alfa's were both GT coupes, first one was a '69 1300 GT Junior and the second a '71 1750 GTV. One of the Fiats I drove was a 124 Spider, great on a nice day but you didn't drive it in the winter, the rest were 128's, a '73 2 dr sedan and a '76 2 dr GT Coupe...

    cheers,

    Its was cool seeing lots of Ferraris and Lambos but man the old Alfas are damn sexy cars.

    Once I get my 74 BMW 2002 fixed up my next car will be a Volvo P1800 or some kind of Alfa Romeo model.

    My first car was a '64 Sprint. Members of my family have had a Sprint Speciale, GTV, and one of my personal favorites, a Montreal.

    I'm not a car freak, but these are pretty! It's a great idea for a Father's Day event, too.

    From a photography standpoint, in #1 I like how the cars create a curved line leading to the foreground, and I think the composition is just great on #2. Nice job on the B&W conversion, too.

    Hey, that looks like a Fiat Abarth in the foreground of #3, a killer little mid-engine car.

    Very nice shots, the mixed B&W with color is great. The unique angles also bring a lot of interest.
