You know me…it’s all about the details 😉

Don’t think this was actually part of the Italian Car Fest, as it was parked outside, in the “Italian Car Parking”. Didn’t stop me from taking pictures, though 😉

The owner asked Sara if she wanted to sit in the car, but she said no…couldn’t even bribe her with ice-cream!!
Was a shame that it was up on the trailer…certainly would have made for a better picture if it wasn’t.

Today: Alfa Romeo
My favorite this year:
Dragged everyone to a car show Talked everyone into going to a car show a couple of weeks ago, and even though it was over 100 degrees F and the kids were whining about not wanting to go, it was still fun…. although a little disappointing to see so many “classics” and not really “antiques”.
Loved the little add-on to the license plate!
I sent Greg and the girls to a birthday party, that Sara was invited to, last Saturday while I met Amber at the gym. Afterwards I was able to talk her into going to a local car show with me. It was HOT outside, and no stars yet, but it was fun.
As usual I had a hard time narrowing down the pictures, so this is part 1 of 3. And no worries, you’ll get to read about the rest of the vacation soon (typing all that out is work, though. LOL)
Austin Healey Sprite – my favorite!!
