HI I'm new! - 73 Alfa Spider

I own an 73 Alfa Spider..and i'm in sunny Vancouver BC...(two seasons here... Rain.. and Not Rain) I'm actually looking for a mechanic to fix any larger problems that in my limited Alfa experience, I can't handle... Not sure how much i can be in thia forum (although I'd be happy to try any answer any question that i can!)

Re: HI I'm new! - 73 Alfa Spider


I'm not sure why you haven't received an answer to your question yet but let me take a stab at it.

Since I'm not local, the best I can do is point you in a few different directions:

- first a local(ish) club (yes I know they're on the Island, but I'm sure somebody there knows the mainland specialists well enough to advise you). It looks like there was/is an Alfa Romeo Owners Club of B.C. but the webpage has vanished.

- second the Alfa Romeo Club of Canada has a B.C.-based representative, so you might try calling him and getting some recommendations.

-- third, the competition to AO.com. There's an American forum called AlfaBB which has a greater percentage of Canadian members. I don't know who's there from Vancouver, but I'd bet there'd be somebody.

I should mention that I'm not a big club person, and I'm not recommending that you join up, unless the people and atmosphere appeal to you. I just think it is helpful to get to know the resources and people in your local area.

So welcome aboard.
