From the 2nd Old Vehicle exhibition along the promenade of Lakki, Leros. The event was organized by the Motorcycling Club of Leros for only one evening (August 3, 2014) and attracted lots of local people and visitors.
This is an Alfa Romeo, a 1750, an elegant sports sedan of the late 60's.
I must apologise for the wrong information and title I had given earlier. A Facebook friend with much knowledge on Alfas pointed out the correct type and name. I had mistaken this car for a Nuova Giulia Super and this is partly justified because they are very similar, the 1750 was based on the Giulia.
I like the car and I think that this set up looks like a sequence from a 70's police or spy movie. My imagination goes wild, the "rescue boat" of the Coast Guard, the Alfa Romeo and the quay of Lakki have become ingredients of a new, mysterious scenario:)
Thank you for visiting

Ciao Ourania,un vero monumento della storia italiana,quella che è stata per anni la macchina della polizia in una magnifica cattura,molto brillante e con il battello arancione dietro che contrasta al meglio i colori.La dicitura esatta e' "Nuova Giulia Super"...buona giornata e complimenti,Luciano

This is a nice shot of this classic car. The angle of the shot works well and the orange boat provides a nice backdrop. The lighting and colors are fine and the photo has fine sharpness.

These Alfa Romeo is not so old for my age, but for young people maybe old.
Italy has always very nice interiors for their cars
Very nice picture with the boat in background
Excellent perspective and depth picture with lovely colours.
Sharpness and clarity make your picture very attractive.
Nice photo job, TFS.

The point of view is excellent with the black Alfa forming a T and making a fine contrast with the red hull of the boat in the background. Good saturated colours and superb clarity.

La photo est très bien faite,l'alfa est bien mise en valeur avec le bateau en arrière ,
La lumière provoque de bons reflets sur la carrosserie.

just take a look at that old Grill! Cars don't have grills like that anymore.
same goes with the oversized headlights too.
I feel as if we've been transported back into time.

Such a renown Italian auto they dont make them like that any more. It gleams doesn't it with loads of character was then one of the greatest on the road in the 70s. I love the detail on the grill and around the light cluster. It's bright and sparkly - I really like it, very effective image beautifully photographed. Congrats

These fairly old, but not ancient cars have a cuteness that I don't yet find in the more modern models. Maybe in 30-40 years the cars of today will also look slightly funny, it's just that I won't experience that :-(. In the three photos you have shown so far I have actually found the backgrounds the most interesting. They provide a local flavour and in this case also a bright colour.

Best taken care old car, Ourania, I can speculate it is the 1.6cc engine, and the shine is immaculate.
Good decision to post with the orange color of the boat behind.
Excelent photojob done.

Interesting contrast the classical 70s Alfa Romeo sedan in front of the orange dominate Coast Guard boat.
My engineer friend from Calif. Transportation almost sold me his 60s Alfa Romeo sports car many moons ago, but changed his mind and kept it. I was not too disappointed because I had a 67 MGB which I truly enjoyed, especially when taking females for a cruise.
Thanks for sharing,

You are right, I do remember this famous car in the action movies from 1970th. Good presentation of design, perfect quality! I also love this orange background. It makes excellent contrast for Alfa Romeo.

Ciao Ourania, cattiva questa, non l'ho guidata mai, che con mille lire di benzina ci facevo 10 metri, ma me la ricordo bene, gran bei ricordi della mia gioventù, vettura di gran classe ripresa splendidamente con ottima nitidezza e magnifici dettagli, brava, ciao Silvio

Hai ragione Ourania
un'auto molto utilizzata nei film, tra inseguimenti e scontri con la polizia tra le strade d'Italia.
Molto elegante in questa veste, ancora oggi.

A classical beauty with an attractive orange background. Well taken port scene.

Une belle série, celle ci est bien placé devant le bateau orange dont sa couleur sombre ressort est plus attirante, j'aime les reflets sur le côté, belle image

Hi Ourania dear
Nice portrait of Alfa Romeo. Combine well with the ship. Exposure clarity and well performed. Congratulations and thanks for sharing

It's a beautiful car, taken from and ideal POV in front of a nice and contrasting colored vessel. Thanks for this beauty!
