1995 164LS

New to Alfa Romeo, but not to "different" cars

I purchased a 1995 164LS (red) today. It has a lot of miles, but seems to have been very well cared for and regularly driven. It has 142K on the clock. I bought it for $3700, so the risk is low in my opinion.

I have had a lot of cars, I think this is number 30. I am almost 40 and live in Seattle. I have had: Saab's, Land Rover, Volvo's, Fiats, Mercedes, Chevy's, Fords, MG, Chrysler's, Ramblers, Toyota's, Lots of VW's, and several motorcycles. I do most of my own work too.

I currently have: 1998 Volvo XC70, 1981 VW Rabbit Diesel 4door, 1967 IHC Travelall, 1997 LR Disco (wrecked in a rear ender 2 weeks ago hence the Alfa purchase) and a 1997 Holiday Rambler Diesel motorhome.

I need a lot of info on this Alfa. It is a car that makes me feel something when I drive it. I was looking for another Disco when this caught my eye and I just took it home. I have no manual. I have no owners manual. I cannot find the fuse box and I cannot figure out the alarm system. I did find the key slot in the trunk and turn off the alarm, but I want to use it if I can.

I hope there is a club in the Seattle area thet I can glean info from.

Thanks for this forum and I look forward to giving and taking in this group.
