Albany Street Sighting - 1965 Alfa Romeo Giulia TI
These Giulias are cute, honest little Italian family cars, light and zippy and even with just 1.6 liters on tap, a TI is still able to muster 105 mph. They were very popular in their day with the Italian Polizia! This one is kept simple in plain white with typical coastal surface rust but nothing that appears particularly serious. Aside from the aforementioned NOx Exempt sticker, I also like the Berkeley residential parking permit that expired in 1989. Vintage black plates look like '65 or '66 issues - they could be original, if in fact it is a '65 model. If I got anything wrong, please feel free to correct me. It's a little hit-or-miss when I have to cobble together research on model years from the Internet Movie Car Database, BringATrailer and owners' forums.
