I come from an automotive family, cars are in my blood. At A young age I was exposed to almost everything on wheels. Although I owned, drove or raced many fine machines, in the mid 1960’s a short drive in an Alfa GTA floored me.
I previously knew something about Alfas, but never had driven one before. After some research I became convinced that these light sports cars could not be beat. I bought my GTV and almost 40 years later have gone through about 25 Alfa’s including a 2600 Spider.
As a kid I was affected by the sight of Alfas being scrapped at junkyards such as Stuckers or Sil’s. I never forgot the sight of those still beautiful Guiletta’s being parted out and piled up to be melted for scrap iron. Over the years I managed to save a few Alfas. I'm currently restoring a 1967 GTV.
I currently own 6 Alfa's as follows: 1966 Duetto, 1967 GTV (three), 1971 GTV, and a 2016 4C Spider. And I'm on the list for a new Giulia.
I’ve been a member of AROC for 40 years and an original Charter member of our chapter LIAROC, now NYAROC. I currently serve on our Board as a Director, have previously served in every position except Treasurer, and also on the National Board as a Director. My wife, Gail and daughters, Lorraine, Michelle, and Victoria have enjoyed participating in club events over the years, especially our conventions. We are all Alfisti and happy to be involved with the Alfa Romeo Owners Club. I believe that our club is the best because of our fellow members and also, of course, our collection of fine automobiles.
