At a recent Blackhawk Cars and Coffee held on the day of Enzo Ferrari's birthday, Alfistis and Ferrari fanatics descended in droves I didn't think existed in the Bay Area.
The lot saw a few notable automotive fascias, including a surprise visit by an F40. Perhaps my favorite Ferrari in existence and the last remnant of a bygone era of analog performance machines, the F40 was trumped when it came to my lens's focus.
An unassuming Alfa Romeo GTV -- an early "Step-nose" variant -- saw more attention from me than any other car in attendance. With it's elegant shape and road rally stance, the car was the epitome of form and function, leaving this 23-year-old enthusiast feeling as though he'd been born in the wrong decade.
