The best car

In 1969 I bought my first brand new car. An Alfa Romeo GTV 1750 .

It was the single best vehicle I ever drove and it lasted 20000 miles.

Alas the front frame dissolved in the driveway and the car was laid to rest.

It had never seen a New England it was oil sprayed twice a year and garaged every fall before the snows came.

It handled like a dream always wanting to go faster and taking corners with ease and fine finesse.

The car was a real beast in anything the resembles snow or slush. I picked the car up in Spring but as with New England Spring on the trip back from Boston I hit Winter. I discovered to my amazement that when the car began to skid, that if I fought the urge to fight the skid, released the wheel, it would stay on the straight and narrow.

In all the years I drove the Alfa my only ' complaint' was the constant oil stain on the garage floor which still reminds me of the car when I see it to this day.

How I wish I could re-experience that car again. Pure joy ! ! !
