Hmmm Hello

After years of driving Saab's and Volvo's I feel like a change.I have always fancied an Alfa but with the rust problems of the 70's and the general sharp intake of breath from the trade"Dont touch them" I never have.
Question one is:Are they as bad as painted for falling apart bodily and mechanicly? I have already learned of the tender timing belts etc.
Question Two:Which one?My wife fancies the Spyder and so do I but practicaly I lean towards the 156.
Many more questions to come I think.
