Hi Miss Alfa Romeo
Enjoy your Alfa's!
Over here in the UK there are not so many 'Sud's, Sprints or 33's left, they are being lost to rust, and we spend far too much time and money trying to keep what we still have in good condition.
I am, (we are), very jealous of you guys out in Australia, you have got the right weather for old Alfa's, last year I was chatting to a lady called Kath who had a very nice 1978 Alfasud Ti in Coral Red, (orange really), it was the very same year, model and colour as my first Alfa, but sadly mine is long gone now.
To satisfy my love of the old 'Sud, Sprint and 33, (had at least one of each), I have now bought a Minari Kit car that I am slowly bringing back to life. It is a fibre-glass body with Alfasud / 33 mechanicals. I have a webshots photo folder of my progress, it is a bit out of date at the moment as I have not updated it for a while, but the car is now on the road, it is all legal but still needs lots of work. See the link below; would a good example of the Minari be a good car for use in Australia?

Remember! We Brits are jealous of the condition of the Australian Alfa's so use them and enjoy them just as we would like to be able to here in damp old Britain!!
