I'm here because...

This is the first time I've ever posted anything in a forum. Why I'm here is to find out more about Alfa Romeo cars, specifically a 1977 Spider which I'm considering to buy. It has 33,000 miles, sat most of its life in a series of garages (as it does now), it doesn't run, the breaks are frozen, and it has a very nice header and I don't know what else. I live in California and the header is a problem. The car is registered in the state of Washington and I would like to register it in California. Thus, the problematic header or the lack of any emission controls of 1977 vintage brings me searching for solutions to the problem. Where can I find a complete exhaust system complete with necessary equipment to pass California emission tests and make it legal for California roads. My first ride in an Alfa was 1962 in a high school buddy's 1957 roadster which he painted bright red; red being the very approriate color for an Italian sports car.

Re: I'm here because...

This car sounds like a restoration project? lots and lots of money needed I suspect.

Maybe some of our US members will soon happen along and be able to point you in the appropriate direction....

Hiya mate and welcome to the forum.

To be honest most of the folks on here are british/european and you might not get the best information.

There is another Alfa Forum run by and populated by Americans mostly and this can be found at


Hope this helps your cause, the car will be a beauty if you take on the resto project
