Canadian Newbie

Hello to all in Alfa Romeo Land,

I am from Canada and am brand new to this site and relatively new for forums in general, so I'll apologize now for any mistakes.

I have always been a car nut, and have always loved the Italian cars, since I am also Italian, I have never owned an Alfa or Fiat or Ferrari, but I never say day, one day

I have recently become aware of the Alfa Romeo Spider (convertible) they were never offered in Canada, that is why I am so taken aback by the styling and look of it.
and am currently on the process of locating one to purchase out of Japan.

Trying to learn everything I can about the car, that is what lead to this site/forums

I understand I cannot ask 'Techie' questions here, but would love to communicate with anyone who has a complete knowledge on these beauties.......specifically 1996 Spider model

I am open to any discussions and education that anyone would care to share,

thanks in advance
happy to be here
all the best

Hi Cris - welcome aboard!
There are a couple of technical sub-forums under Technical & Vehicle Assistance - Alfa Romeo Forum dedicated to the Spiders - hope you find the right car for you and you'll see: lots of smiles to the gallon

Hi Cris waving welcome to AO. You'll find that there are quite a few 96 Spiders in Canada now, I saw 3 at the last car show I was at in Vancouver. They are 15 years old and quite easily imported. Cheers
