916 spider

A Cornish "Newbie"

Hi everyone, I thought I had better introduce myself as I have been picking your brains for the last few months! I bought my first ever Alfa, a 916 Spider phase 1 (1998) in October after "accidentally" going on to the Pistonheads site. Talk about love at first sight! Great condition just a few minor niggles, something to tinker with. Then I saw a second car (1997) going cheap on eBay which I bought for a spares source. The power steering had gone, but it turned out to be a burst pipe, repaired for a few pounds and is way too good to be used for spares. So now to my wife's horror we have twins!
I live in Cornwall, work in Devon and am soon going to turn 63, I no longer drive like you "youngsters" but there are plenty of twisty roads around us, so plenty of fun even at "moderate" speeds. I just can't wait for summer.....
