I am nelsonian4d, Alfista since 14. Studied drums and music with a master teacher that had a 1976 Alfa Romeo Spider.
My first lesson with Dani was July 22, 1976. He arrived at my home that day at 3:30 pm. (Heard the car first before the door bell rang!)
First time in my life that I had seen an Alfa Romeo, it was WOW!
My dad drove a brown Chevy station wagon with a blue stripe at 25mph it seemed. The brown family wagon looked like a giant washing machine with wheels to me...... Hated it, the Alfa Spider 2000 looked like a little rocket. I was hooked!!!!
Three weeks ago I bought a 1976 Alfa Spider just like the one my teacher of 36 years had. Dani died last year, he was 85. I felt the best way to honor his dynamic life was for me to buy an Alfa myself. I always did what he taught, "I think" and now while he is looking from above I know he is
That is how this Alfa story goes........
