Yes I'm a Newbie, well a newbie here but not to Alfa Romeo ownership.
I came upon my first Alfa at the age of 20 - a 1750GTV MkII - and fell in love with the whole experience at that point. Now, 36 years later I am building a GTAm 'evocazione' which will hopefully replace my racing GT Junior which I rather embarrassingly rolled at a Classic Alfa Goodwood track day in 2012.
I have recently restored a 1750 Spider Veloce roundtail and have a good but not perfect 2000 Spider S2. As you can see I am partial to 105 series cars but have half shares in two Alfasuds too - an immaculate 1.5 Super and a racing 1.5Ti, both early booted cars.
I've joined the forum to help with the GTAm build and maybe help others with the foibles of the 105 series, at least in my everyday long-term modest capacity.
