Yes, spring in Texas is for driving. And there are no greater driving enthusiasts than the members of the Texas Hill Country Alfa Romeo Owners Club. The Austin club is renowned for its inclusiveness. Don’t have an Alfa? No worries.. if you’re a car enthusiast and love to get together with other like-minded gearheads, then you’ll find yourself welcome in this group.
The Austin Alfa Club meets regularly for coffee on the first Saturday of each month at Mozart’s Coffee House on Lake Austin Blvd, around 8:30 or so.
If you are a newcomer, you’ll find yourself amongst friends in short order!
One unique feature of the Alfa club.. there are no dues, and no business meetings. This club is all about car enthusiasts getting together and swapping tales, and enjoying drives with their beautiful Italian machines.
At least twice each year, the Alfa Club stages a weekend drive for club members. This spring (2014), the drive encompassed approximately 150 miles of some of the most beautiful Hill Country back roads in the region. The route followed Hamilton Pool Road through open pasture land, continued on to explore the hallowed “Willow City Loop” famed for its outstanding displays of bluebonnets and other wildflowers, proceeded past legendary Luckenbach, to terminate for lunch on the square in Blanco, Texas.
