Son seeks Alfa for Dad. Help!

Hi Everyone

I am completely new to this. Funnily enough, I dont even own an Alfa. I drive a Fiat Punto. But my dad drives an Alfa 156 and has driven Alfas since the 1970s.

I joined this forum to seek some advice. Let me explain

My father has spent the last two years looking after my mum who has lung and liver cancer. He has almost stopped working entirely and is looking increasingly tired, worn out, stressed etc. He never does anything for himself so I thought I'd surprise him this summer. He is a lover of Italian cars, especially Alfas. No guessing why The Graduate is his favourite film...

My brother and I have been trying to source a 1968 alfa spider, in red of course. I wonder if anyone might be able to help us find one. I am 19 and he is 16, so neither of us have any experience in buying classic cars.

I hope I have come to the right place and that you might be able to help. Thanks!

Welcome to AO Joe waving . Sorry to hear about your mum what a nice thought from you and your brother to get your dad smiling again. If you check out the 'classic' lounge maybe someone can help you out more in there, probably going to be a bit costly though. Good luck with the hunt
