Having driven old Alfa Romeos back from the west coast three times (twice in 1998 and once in 2001), always via the country's scenic back roads, the Pratt boys had gotten the itch once again. Dave acquired a red '61 Giulietta, with some improvements from a slightly more recent model (click here to learn more about the car).
But the best part is that it was located in ... Portland, Oregon! That meant another Road Trip! So we flew out and started driving her back on Tuesday, April 6th. No Interstate highways for us—this was a week and a half of driving the back roads of America in an Alfa, with plenty of stops (anticipated and otherwise) along the way!
So travel vicariously along with us! We once again hauled along a laptop and digital camera and updated this web site regularly with our progress (or lack thereof).
