Drivin' with the Top Down

Not long after I found a home in California the ultimate California roadster appeared. An early 60's pin tail Alpha Romero. From what I understand there are only a few of these ever made. The entire car is original and completely restored. An amazingly fun ride through the hills of coastal Cali!
One early morning I got the chance to take a quick trip in this machine out to the coast. It was quick and fun. This thing drives like a go cart. Direct connect steering, lots of power and great in the turns.
The time also afforded me the opportunity to get the owner some pics. It was a great way to start the day and we made it a point to go out at least once a week in the mornings for a coastal drive. Nothing but blue skies, enough chill in the air to wear a jacket and stunning scenery.
It's drives like these when words were never spoke. Just an occasional smile will do.
