Well, that doesn't happen too often!

Even at car events, it's not all that common to see more than one GTV6 at a time.  The chances of running into another one on the street are next to nil, yet that's exactly what happened to me yesterday!  I was driving along minding my own business when my passenger pointed out a red GTV6 parked in a mini mall at the side of the road.  We pulled a quick U turn and waited for the owner to come out.  "Well, that doesn't happen too often!" he exclaimed as he emerged grocery-laden from the store to the sight of 2 GTV6's where there had previously been just one.  The owner of the other car turned out to be local Alfista Nick Ericson, who was featured in the New York Times' Auto Ego years ago with his GTV6! Ironically, it was this man and his car which were among my first inspirations to buy my own Alfa. So it was great to finally meet him!
