‘Alfiesta Coronado’

Alfa Romeo 2500 SS Ghia

What looked to be a 100-point 1950 Alfa Romeo 2500 SS Supergioiello by Ghia.

The 2022 Alfa Romeo Owners Club National Convention, “Alfiesta Coronado,” was held from June 12-19 at Tidelands Park, Coronado, Calif.

The event gathered around 100 cars by 200-300 owners who traveled from around the U.S. Participants took driving tours around San Diego County, and attended tech sessions. Owners wheeled through a gimmick rally, a track day at Willow Springs, and a day trip to tour the Petersen Automotive Museum . There also were vendors and an Alfa display of art and models.

Of course, there was a banquet, which featured keynote speaker and “Alfa Guy,” automotive author Burt Levy.

Here is a gallery of cars from the Concorso show and shine at Tidelands Park.
