San Francisco Street Sighting - 1974 Alfa Romeo 2000 GT Veloce
This one rolls on 5-spoke Cromodora Daytona wheels and features dark blue paint with saddle-colored interior. It's a 20-footer, one of those cars that looks really good from 20 feet away. Up close the effects of 35 years of use make themselves more evident, in the form of parking lot dents and what could be minor rust starting on the chrome and possibly around the rear wheel arches. It could use some work to clean and freshen it up a bit, but as-is this little Alfa is probably a great driver. For a San Francisco car, it's in pretty good shape. And, like most owners of vintage Italian cars in The City, he knows a good Alfa specialist mechanic to keep it running!
