Our talented friends at Petrolicious have spotlighted a car in their most recent video that epitomizes the joy of driving and the reason we all do what we do. Guy Newark and is little blue Porsche 356 have been through a lot, and it’s a story worth sharing. “It takes a lot of driving, work, and a little bit of luck to achieve nearly a million miles in one car.
Since 1911, just one year after the company’s birth, Alfa Romeo has been sprinting past the checkered flag ahead of the competition: 102 years of automotive racing experience has been collected, refined, and formed into a brand that has become synonymous with performance and engineering. The italian marque has celebrated victories in seemingly every category of motorsport, ranging from the world’s first Grand Prix Championship in 1925, to the depths of mud in rally racing.
We took the day on Wednesday to head up to Culver City, just east of LA. Tucked away off a battered side-street lies the Petrolicious headquarters, a brick warehouse which serves as an office to an unbelievably talented team, and as a home to a rather lovely group of Alfa Romeos.
Our friend Josh Clason at Petrolicious has released his latest video – a look at a pair of unbelievably unique Alpina 6-series cars. Keen readers may remember “The Collector”: he’s back once again, and we’re hoping everyone enjoys the latest additions to his garage.
