I have been easing back into Alfas over the last several years after a 30+ year absense, starting with my purchase of an 86 Alfa Spider Veloce about 5 yrs ago and a recent purchase of a 73 GTV 2000 last fall. As I've gained mechanical knowledge over the years, I find that I didn't appreciate the superb engineering represented by Alfas. My concentration now is restoring the GTV that needs very few but hard-to-find unique items, like trim pieces, etc, that are no longer manufactured. Eventually, I want to rebuild the engine, transmission and differential to new quality with sensible upgrades along the way, but they are acceptable for now. I hope to have valuable exchanges with members on technical issues and finding sources for parts & share my experiences to help other members. Thanks in advance for what I hope to be a healthy exchange of Alfa information.
