Welcome To ARA!
We are all about Alfa Romeo. The Alfa Romeo Association (ARA) was founded in 1958 by a small group of Alfa enthusiasts who loved their cars and drove them daily. Though times have changed and many of those everyday cars are now sought-after collectibles, ARA members are still enjoying their Alfas on a daily basis. Our large group of members include the most passionate, experienced and tech-savvy Alfisti you will find anywhere.
ARA is based in the San Francisco Bay Area, and we have members all across the USA and around the globe. We serve the needs of Northern California Alfisti through regular social events, driving tours, tech sessions and driving/competition events. The 2015 schedule contains such events nearly every month, and exemplifies the active nature of this club. Our schedule underlines the passion that we hold for Alfa Romeos. We continue to publish a monthly magazine, Overheard Cams, which chronicles our past and future events, contains tech articles, and puts forth our miscellaneous ramblings. As a member, you are invited to contribute your thoughts, ideas and experiences. Additionally, our web site contains the most up-to-date information about events. To help with more immediate needs to communicate among members, we also run an online discussion group forum, and we regularly post to facebook.
Whether you currently own, used to own, or one day hope to own an Alfa Romeo, this is the place for you.
Meetings are held on the first Wednesday of every month (except December) at 8:00 PM. Come earlier if you want to eat before the meeting!
The current location is:
Giovanni's New York Pizzeria:
1127 Lawrence Expressway, Sunnyvale, CA 94089
