The following adventuresome Alfisti are planning to make the trek across the wide-open and very warm USA to the Alfa Romeo convention in Sonoma California.  Note, most car photos are not the actual cars but used for illustration purpose only.

I’m the guy sitting on the fence.  Well, I am jumping off and onto the road err driver seat., I hope. My last shift  at work is a night shift of the 20th of June, so theoretically I can leave on the 23rd. The car is a 164 and is on blocks and  I am half way through the timing belt replacement and other small fly gripes.   My plans are to  do route 66 till Flagstaff. At Flagstaff I want to visit a college buddy who has a summer-house  in the vicinity of Flagstaff. He mentioned that  we should stop by because he has a section of Route 66 on his property that the conocenti know about and ask to have pictures taken due to  his segment has a bridge over a wash. Cool.

UPDATE 6/22 – Timing belt is done. Some final work to be done but will not be completed until June 26th or later.

Departing from East Hampton, Connecticut on June 23rd.  Traveling via the maps published here on this site. As we have the most time we will be driving the slowest and covering the least amount of miles per day in anticipation of the rest of the participants catching up with us.

  2. Hello Route 66ers! There’s still room on the post convention Tahoe/Motherlode Tour if you are interested. Mr. Rizzo in your group is signed up. Thought I’d mention it to all of you. Day 2 includes a late afternoon/early evening BBQ at a cabin in Lake Tahoe. It’s not listed on the official tour description. I’m co-leading the tour and hosting the BBQ. Could be a fun head start to your journey east!

    • Hey James!
      Some of have signed up for the North Coast post convention tour. Also, most are shipping the cars back east as vacation time only allows a one way drive.
