New Spider Owner from Lone Star State
Howdy from Texas! Just got my first Alfa a couple of weeks ago (about 25 years after trying to make a red Graduate my first new car purchase!). Took delivery of everybody's favorite "sticker" car-1978 Spider Veloce Niki Lauda (#238). A really clean 2-owner Spider w/ 44,000 miles. After owning everything from numerous muscle cars, Lotus Europa Big Valve, Porsche 924 Turbo, Corvettes, and my current everyday driver, a Liquid Red Pontiac G8 GT, I must say the Spider is probably the most viscerally exciting car to drive. I immediately started making some changes to the Spider by adding Carello headlight covers, and looking to replace the hideous bumpers. Motor mods are next-up. After getting this car where I want it, I'll probably look for a Montreal. Great to be part of the Alfisti after waiting 25 plus years!
