Greetings fellow Alfa enthusiasts. I have just joined the forum, more out of curiosity than to answer any specific question at the moment. I have owned 9 Alfas over the years, and currently have 3 - a '72 GTV which I purchased from the original owner in 1984, a '74 Spyder which I imported from California in '93 and an '84 GTV6 which also came from Ca and I have owned since '91. All of these cars are rust free and have been modified to some extent to improve their performance. Until two years ago, my daily driver was a 164S but then I stumbled across a '95 C36 AMG Mercedes with 47,000 original km. These cars were hand built for Mercedes by AMG so Mercedes could compete in the European Touring Car Championships (which they won two years in a row). Bought the Merc and sold the high mile 164 to a young, new enthusiast who is still driving it. The Merc is a wolf in sheeps' clothing but I still love driving the Alfas . . . they are a rarity in my part of the world and never fail to put a smile on my face.
