Alfa Romeo P-33

“Mid-life crisis, Bob?” Mert asked slyly when he saw this little gem shining in the lot.

“More like a two-thirds life crisis, if you want to get technical.”

“I guess that’s quite a bit more realistic.”

And with that happy thought we decided it would be cool to jump in the shiny, near-mint vintage Alfa Romeo (made in Hong Kong by PlayArt, 1970s), and cruise around attracting attention.

Unfortunately we didn’t get too far because, in typical Alfa fashion, the pretty little thing made a sound like a long fart and broke down within about two blocks. But it sure looked great doing it.
