Kevin, Alfa purist, New Zealand.
I'm Kevin & Yes I'm an Alfa nutter & have been for a very long time.
My first Alfa was a 1965 Guilia 1600 which I had for about 13 yrs & completely restored. Since then I've had a 71 GTV coup, several suds,
an Alfetta 2000GTV which I also completely restored, a very quick Alfa 75, and my present ride is an Alfa 164 3ltr V6.
Being a mechanic I've always carried out the building of engines & restoration work myself, that to me is just as enjoyable as driving an Alfa.
I was introduced (seduced ), to driving Alfa's while doing my apprenticeship as an automotive machinist,by my boss who used to quote many times, " Once an Alfa driver always an Alfa driver.
My next Alfa project that I hope to tackle is an Alfa spider which in this country will nead converted to RHD.
I'm not sure who will get to reading this intro , But I guess that you'll be an Alfa nutter just like me so all the best to you in you journey with Alfa Romeo.
