The Alfa is my 750D Guilietta spider manufactured May 20, 1959, which was my first car in 1965. It had about 25,000 miles when I received it from the original owner, and about 76,000 miles when I parked it in 1970. Over 16,000 miles have been added since restoration was completed in 2012. Driven to conventions in Toronto, Nashville, Warwick, Montreal, and Pittsburgh.
Glen Drew | As can be seen in the cornerstone, the church dates from 1842, and the 1910 date is from the relocation west from in the cemetery behind the church.
Picture 7 & 8 – James Giokas and Penelope, Baby Driver | My 1st grandchild Penelope is getting ready to drive my Giulia (she is a little young to drive being only 9 months old in this photo). I used to drive her mother, my daughter, in this car when she was just a baby. It’s so wonderful to be able to drive her daughter and my granddaughter in the same car. So now my daughter Julia (Giulia) who always said that she gets Alfa next now has competition for the Alfa with her own daughter Penelope. Photo was taken last October in my driveway.
