Good Morning

Bon Giorno a Alfisti!
My Name is Ray and I live in Brown Summit, North Carolina, a small farming community just north of Greensboro in the Piedmont Region of the Carolinas. When I was in my early 20's (now I'm in my mid 60's) I drove a 1960 Guiletta Spider Veloce. I've never gotten Alfa's out of my system. I now have a 1984 Spider Veloce, and it is a fun car to drive.
It seems to love the road at about 70 MPH (120 Kph). We have some difficulty getting replacement parts for our cars here in the US since Alfa left the market in the mid '90's. So now my hobby is finding derilict and homeless Spiders and parting them out to others that need assistance with their cars. I've also had over time a series of Roadsters, including a '60 Bug Eye Austin Sprite, a '58 Corvette, a '59 Triumph TR-3,
a '74 Fiat Spider 2000, a '90 Mazda Miata, all of which are gone but not forgotten. Thanks for taking time to read this, hope to help someone out there with a need for something from a vintage series Spider.
