3.2 V6 Spider in Vela Blue at HRG today. Only 20k on the clock and outwardly in very good nick. Engine bay a little disappointing - the chrome down pipes were a bit tarnished and the coolant reservoir was completely brown but probably nothing that couldn't be cleaned up. Alfie reckoned it may have blown a head gasket as it was a little smokey. It was in for a faulty roof mechanism.
These are probably the rarest of the beast and I told Alfie I'd be interested if the owner wanted to sell. Apparently he doesn't :-(

Got a wave from a Spider yesterday lunchtime on the A4 just west of Marlborough.

Just about managed a wave back! Not sure if the headlight flash was to attract my attention to another Spider on the road or the fact that my right turn indicator was still on

What's equally embarrassing is I didn't even clock the type or colour but whoever you were 10/10 for observation!

Turns out its on Pistonheads at 8,250.
Used 2005 Alfa Romeo Spider V6 LUSSO for sale in Warrington | Pistonheads

I'd expect it to be immaculate for that money and I am afraid IMHO it isn't quite there. Not clear whether it needs belts. The roof may still be an issue.

Doesn't matter I guess. No one to wave to!

Basically, a hello to any other Alfa driver on the road. Nothing special, no secret handshake to my knowledge

Saw a Cup, a GT and a Spider (115) outside The Stags Head Maidwell, Northampton. Obviously stayed over, as I saw them on my way home from work Friday, then on my way in Saturday morning.
