For some, the dedication and passion invested into their vintage car approaches fanatical levels, much like those who push their limits in the ocean. Whether racing from Molokai to Oahu or paddle-boarding for miles and miles off California’s coast, being in the ocean can become an obsession. For Mr. Casey Annis, his 1962 Alfa Romeo Giulia Spider Veloce 1600 allows him to bridge the gap between his two pastimes—classic cars and the ocean.
On days that Casey can’t make it into the water he still drives along the beach and is able to see the surf, check out conditions, smell the brine and feel the spray. It is a car, but it’s also a way of staying connected to the water when he can’t physically be in it.
