Hi to all from a new owner of a MINT s3 spider

Hi folks

Its my first post with this forum and my first time with an alfa.

A quick story for you all

I am a Lancist through and through (well till now)
i have owned many lancia's in the past from the fulvia to the betas and intergrale
in fact i have a fulvia and two montecarlos which i am restoring.
BUT a friend of mine offerered me the the following
A alfa Spider S3 californian import so i thought i would take a look as every spider i have looked at in the past has had rust issues ( well in my price bracket)
The story of this car is as follows
its a 1985 black spider 2000 graduate that is 100% standard.
It was put into a container in 1998 and imported into Falkirk with 70,000 klicks on it.
It came out of the container 4 weeks ago!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
i went and looked it over and i could not believe the condition of it!!
This car looked like new underneath.
so anyway she is now mine and currently being recommisioned to get put back on the road.

I hope you like my little tale and i look forward to pestering one and all as i ask many a daft question about the spider as it is an unknown to me at the moment.

I am hoping i can attach a pic of her

best regards
