*Formally known as "The Lucas Marelli Fall Tour*, members & guests of the Alpha-Romeo Club hosted a 1st class gathering, hill country drive & a catered winery lunch. Hosts & organizers Dean & Elizabeth graciously opened their Hudson Bend home to 20 +cars & many participants from as far away as.....Spain !! A very nice breakfast buffet was generously provided by Peter van Kooij, who also is an organizer of The Rolling Sculpture Car Show in November.
*Alpha-Romeo, Porsche, Corvette,Triumph, Fiat, Ferrari, BMW, RXs (2 !!) + other rare & exotic cars went on the drive. My personal favorite was the retro 1950's James Dean Porsche speedster in mirror finish metallic maroon. Excellent maps, the scenic drive & tour lead were also by Dean & Elizabeth.
*The route began @10am from Hudson Bend, through Lakeway, Bee Creek Rd., Briar Cliff, Paleface Ranch Rd., 2147, 281, 71, Llano, 16, Willow City Loop, Cypress Mill, Hamilton Pool Rd., & arriving 1:30pm @West Cave Cellars winery. 170 miles +- with one stop & great weather on all the best roads in 3-1/2 hours.
*Lunch was specially catered for this group & included a pit-roasted pig with the trimmings & an open wine bar. Everything was very good & totally pleasant under the giant oak trees. A few rogue drivers opted for Fuddruckers on 71 for burgers & giant screens for the Texas vs. #8 Baylor game. A very long & stressful 1 point Longhorn win in the last 2 seconds contributed to some high bar bills.
*It was one of the best drives ever,...going again next fall. Thanks to Dean, Elizabeth, & all the members/guests of the Alpha-Romeo Club. And,....to Charlie Strong for pulling a real upset. It was a great fall Saturday !!
