Larkslaw Awaits Arrival of His First Alfa Romeo!
It's Larkslaw out of Atlanta, Georgia. I am about to break an 18-year
tradition, shifting from restoring and running classic SAAB 900s to
take on my first Alfa Romeo.
She's a 1988 Spider -- of the Graduate class. But the original owner,
a woman engineer, "tricked" her Spider out with an additional $10K in accessories.
I think this beauty had three owners before me. She sure had a lot of garage time for she's only clocked 30K miles during her twenty years.
Her current owner is a great mechanic working out of the northern suburbs of Gainesville, Ga. He bought four Spiders at an estate
sale several years ago and fixed them all up for resale. This
beauty became the "pick of the litter."
He's doing some final touches on her before releasing her to me
for the fall, top-down season.
It'll be a real change to shift from a SAAB Classic Convertible to
