UFO sightings not withstanding, this one was neither unidentified nor flying.

Stelvio sighted in Gardnerville, NV. Pulling out of a residential neighborhood onto U.S. 395, just south of the reservation.

I wonder how the owner deals with the lack of dealerships in the area?

Hopefully you start to see more and that encourages more dealerships

I prolly see 5-10 minimum a day. Stelvio and giulia. Maybe because a lot of Italians in south Philly but very common in this area
Or maybe because South Philly has a population of 168000 city folks while Gardnerville has a population of 6000 mostly cattle ranchers.
The Reno metro area has a population of about 500,000 while the much smaller Philadelphia metro area has a population of about 5,000,000.

I rarely see any Stelvio or Giulia in the Silicon Valley area even though I know they are there. Maybe I just don't get out much.

If the population is too small and poor for an Alfa and/or Maserati dealership to make money there is not going to be a dealership.

Cattle ranching is not a high profit business. The largest cattle ranch in Bridgeport has to run a "Dude Ranch" in order to make a profit.
Most people involved in the Casino business (i.e. the employees) earn very little money.

Ranching is not profitable? Kevin Costner has a helicopter in Yellowstone.

Not sure what you are smoking but cattle ranching is pretty profitable. They do not get out there for fun lol.

Depends on the price of meat for sure but trust me... lots of those guys are millionaires.

Sure, one guy running a 100,000 acre ranch with hundreds of sub-minimum wage ranch hands manages to have some money. One guy does not make a population. One guy does not keep an Alfa dealer open. Making a small profit on a large volume still yields a lot of money, but it is still not a high profit business.

I see way more Stelvios than Giulias here in the DMV. Still very uncommon, but I'm not out and about as much.

I live 60 miles southwest of Chicago and I am lucky to see Giulia or stelvio once every 2 or 3 months. It’s kinda scary. People around here don’t have a clue what my Giulia is. Some people thinks it’s a quarter million dollar car.

Yeah, I suspect that this high price perception is part of the problem. People who could afford one won't look for one if they think it costs multiples of what it actually costs.

I don't think any of the Giulia TV ads ever displayed "starting from $38000"

From Gardnerville or Bridgeport, the nearest Alfa dealer is 200 miles away <sigh>.
