Following the Top Gear adage "You can't be a true petrolhead until you've owned an Alfa Romeo," is rather difficult for those of us in North America. Faced with a distinct lack of new cars and an equally disturbing abundance of vintage basketcases, the road to Alfa ownership is a difficult one for residents of the new world.

Where there's a will, there's a way, though, and the benefits certainly seem worthwhile, as we see with Casey Annis and his gorgeous 1962 Alfa Romeo Giulia Spider Veloce 1600. Annis is the publisher and editor of Vintage Racecar Magazine, so he knows a thing or six about these classic Alfas. The video discusses his Alfa, which has been upgraded to Veloce specifications, as well as what the Alfa community is like as a whole.

Petrolicious has the story on Annis and his Alfa in its latest video. Fans of classic Italians are not going to want to miss this one.

      In person this car is just plain beautiful and finding one to buy is getting more expensive by the day.

      beautiful car. He had a good childhood if there was a Dino in his dads driveway...a lot different from mine in which the most exotic car was a VW beetle...parked next to a new Chrysler Newport and an AMC Levi's Gremlin X

      Alfa was really building beauties back then. They are getting really expensive these days-Ferrari v8 money.

      The Alfa Romeos of the 60's and 70's are some of the best cars ever built in my opinion. I'm optimistic that Marchionne's very public desire to reposition Alfa as a serious competitor in the premium car market will come to fruition. Fiat's complete acquisition of Chrysler has paved the way for this to happen so they can finally focus on revitalizing the brand now.

      You should have car guys do these interviews, it's supposed to be about the Car. Beautiful machine, though.
