Club merchandise will also available for purchase.
With a total of 30 vehicles available for display and considering the wider public demographic anticipated on the day, the club is seeking to have a diversified selection of vehicles that appropriately represents Alfa Romeo history from vintage all the way to current models. The club invites its members that are interested and available to share their pride and joy with the greater diversified Melbourne audience, to please RSVP at the very earliest as this will help greatly with the planning and car display layout.
