today marks one year ownership exactly !!! yay!! Happy Birthday Giulia Super with Veloce Pack !!

i was one of the first Giulias on the road in our state, (NSW), ... so thats a cool kind of claim to fame

anyway, you guys feel free to post your one year anniversary in this thread with some before and after pics or anything that rocks your boat, did you do anything special for your one year anniversary, do you have anything planned? go fo it ...


i celebrated by taking her on a spirited drive (she loves it when i do that) lol ... along one of our Pacific Coast seacliff bridges creatively called Seacliff Bridge
the road approaching it is very twisty and challenging (challenging to keep it below the speed limit) lol




(we also have a species of spider with a red back and we call it a Redback Spider, we also have a very large banana in Coffs Harbour and we call it The Big Banana at Coffs Harbour ... you can never get lost in Australia, if you want to go for a drive along a great ocean road, you just head for The Great Ocean Road in Victoria!!
go figure huh ? lol

anyway ...planning on giving her a nice foam bath when it cools down a bit later this arvo , thats Aussie drawl for "afternoon", (or "evening" if you are a Pom, a "pom" is an Englishman) ... Sting, that great English songwriter and composer once wrote a song about an Englishman in New York, he called it an Englishman In New York ... so, we arent he only ones who do it
anyway, planning on giving Giulia a nice refreshing foam bath and a gentle blow behind her ears with another new toy i just bought to keep her sparkling and young ...




so anyway, we have completed 19670 happy kilometres together



this is her on the day i first drove her home
and the third and fourth pictures are recent shots taken down the beach where she was chilling with a couple of homies from Italy



:grin2:

Thanks SuperMod

the dryer isnt bad, a bit expensive but does the job well, you would be amazed how much water is being held inside the engine bay,

i have seen water come out of places you guys wouldn't believe ...
attacks drips in the C pillar ... hidden in the dark in the Tail Gate ...
pours out from the headlight assembly ...
all those drops will be lost in time ...


like tears in the rain ...

...time...time to dry

:)

Haha. Great reference. Happy Anniversary mate. She’s lovely. That’s a lovely strip of road, but the National Park before- that is great fun. Looking forward to tackling that one!

If you like a great track, I have to recommend the trip from Bright in Vic, north along the Snowy Mountain Highway to Kosciusko and then on to Anaminaby, then Jindabyne and through the Monaro down to Bega. Not a single cop. Still got finger impressions in the steering wheel. Magic.

Quite a road (bicycle path, too). The old one below looks also fun, albeit more penalizing.

The front windows seem to hold a lot of water. I'm forever forgetting not to lower them soon after washing. End up having to redo the glass.

its a fantastic bicycle and walking path, frequently crowded with tourists that come down to do the hike (about 30 miles south of Sydney)

that is the old road the bridge replaced, it was quite a lottery that one with road slippages and rock falls, never knew what was around a blind corner

Today I received an anniversary gift from Alfa Romeo, 20% off eligible brand merchandise plus free shipping. I must be picky, because I don't see a single thing that interests me enough to purchase.

These popped up on my Facebook feed earlier in the week along with some pretty cool shirts. Not sure I can pull them off, but maybe some of our younger owners can.
Facebook definitely has me in their crosshairs. I get a different Alfa offer every other day.

My 80 year old mother called me to tell me she saw my car on TV the other day, This was the spot she had seen.

In her words... "I so enjoyed watching the cars dancing on the ice"!

I need to take her for a ride soon!!!
My mother loves my car and was in it when I got a ticket. She said "I can't believe we were going that fast; it didn't feel like it" (fortunately not when the trooper was within earshot).
