Spider

Hello !!!

Hi everyone ! What a great site / forum - I wish I'd have found you guys years ago

Not sure what newbies usually post so here goes... I love my 1998 Spider to bits and have been the proud owner for the last 6 years or so...(although hubby abolutely hates my car). I have a real mistrust of alfa dealers, especially after they wrapped my poor spider around the corner of a wall As with most things italian, I've experienced a few niggles and problems with it over the years, although as yet, nothing too serious...

Having probs with electric hood at mo...will post a thread when I have a bit more time. Bye for now - Jeanny

Re: Hello !!!

...Historically, dude originally meant “old rags” — a “dudesman” was a scarecrow. In the late 1800s, a “dude” was akin to a “dandy,” a meticulously dressed man, especially out in the Western USA. It became “cool” in the 1930s and 1940s. Dude began its rise in the teenage lexicon with the 1981 movie “Fast Times at Ridgemont High....”

Re: Hello !!!

Hi Jeanny, welcome to AO

If harleyriv's definitions of the term "Dude" are kosher, then this forum is awash with examples of all 3 categories

Hello Jeanny. Welcome to AO.

You can bring your hubby here too, maybe we can instill some love for Alfa Romeo in him.

Re: Hello !!!

To continue Rusty's ode..

....I dream of Jeannie with the light brown hood
Borne like a vapor on a summer flood
I see her tripping where the bright sparks play
Happy as the dunces that get in her way.
Many were the wild notes her motor would but purr,
Many were the blithe words that waffled from AO'ers...
