Newbie in the house!

Hi, I just joined the forum.

I'm 16 years old and looking to buy my first car..and i wanted to get some feedback on 1977 Alfa Romeo Spider Veloce. I'm looking for a classic car to cruise in once a week.

What do you guys think of the car?

Does anyone know where I can buy the original wheels on it?

yes in The US, depending on the state you can start learning when you're 15.

the spider is a great car but:

Expensive to buy

Expensive to keep running

Expensive to insure (if you're just 16)

So in summary if you have deep pockets it's great, if you haven't but still want an alfa then look at a 147 or if you have quite deep pockets and you want the wind in your hair, then the 916 spider
