If you hold an appreciation or even better yet, a passion for Alfa Romeos large and small, old and new, this is the place and group of people for you. The Alfa Romeo Association (ARA) was founded in 1958 by a group of Alfa Romeo enthusiasts who loved their cars and drove them daily; this still applies to many of our nearly 500 current members and their associates. The ARA is based in Northern California, the United States, but we are proud to attract members from all over the globe who share the same passion for Alfa Romeos.
We have been serving the needs of Northern California Alfisti for many decades through camaraderie, driving tours, technical sessions, track/race events and support/advice when you need it. Planned for 2015, we have tours of private car collections in the area, speakers at general meetings, road trips, tech sessions, and more. The schedule exemplifies the active nature of this club, and very much underlines the passion that this group of people holds 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; you are not only welcome to enjoy reading it but, as a member, also invited to contribute your thoughts, ideas and experiences. To help with more immediate needs to communicate among members, we also run an online discussion group forum, the "Forums", for multilateral discussions, sell/buy cars/parts, or just rant.
Meetings are held on the first Wednesday of every month (except December) at 8:00 PM. The current location is Ricky's Sports Bar & Grill located at:
