Re: new member hello

Hi, welcome.
Maybe the supplying dealer is recorded somewhere within the UK concessionaires or AR themselves?? Nah silly idea. From the reg plate you could try contacting a few 'local' franchised dealers. I wouldn't think it would have been imported from a foreign dealership in '86.
DvLA have all recorded former keepers don't they, I don't know what it takes to get hold that info. Know any members of the constab??

Let me consult the crystal ball...

From the mists of time come forth spirits...


Short answer: No.

Long answer: Seriously if you want information you have to be willing to supply information. For starters fill in your location and make the information relevant. Don't just tell us you're from the planet Earth.

The reason why we need information is that each country has its laws and procedures regarding car registration and ownership tracking. We have to know where you are so we can tell you where to start. Also keep in mind that if you are in a big country (i.e. Canada or the U.S. for example) each smaller jurisdiction (province or state) has its own way of handling things. We need that information as well.

Now anybody worldwide can inquire at the Alfa Romeo archives (do a search on this forum for the contact information, the details should be in the classics lounge ) but that will only tell you about the start of your car's history: what model and specs, and who (usually a dealership) was the original owner.

Also, please fill in the section asking what car you drive. It will make it so much simpler when (in the future) you start asking questions about where to buy parts and how to fix your technical issues.

And before anybody says anything, I know there are lots of regulars on the board who don't have that same information filled out, but usually they've been around long enough that we know their cars and their locations, and if we don't, they have enough experience on the forum to provide enough details when asking for help.
