Its been 21 years but I'm back to Alfa Ownership
Greetings from North Georgia, USA
My wife and I purchased an 1969 1750 Spider Veloce in blue a few months ago. Already have put almost 2000 km on it just cruising around and having fun going to a couple of cruise-in car shows and local Alfa club meetings.
This is not our first Alfa. I bought an 75 new when they first came out in model year 1987 and drove it as my daily driver for 6 years until parenthood required selling my toys (also sold my hot rod F100 pickup truck with 390 V8) to get a minivan (people carrier). Then after empty nesting finally came around, we went back to fun cars. I've always wanted a Roundtail and found what we wanted. Runs great. When we got it, the paint was not in the greatest of shape with a few chips and weak areas and some bubbles near the hood. So, took it to my favorite body shop (and artist) and now, it is perfect.
I'll keep reading and researching here. I have to fix the heater and do some minor tweaking on the Webers. Luckily, this forum, the US Alfabb forum, the local club, and local parts will make that easy and fun.
So, in the traditional manner of car forums (I belong to one or more for every car we own), I'll present the pictures:
Life is too short to drive boring cars or drink boring beers.... Just don't do them at the same time.
Nothing boring in our fleet: 1966 Lotus Elan S2 S/E, 1969 Alfa Romeo 1750 Spider Veloce, 1973 Opel GT, 1973 Triumph TR6, 1979 Triumph Spitfire (w/ GT6 drivetrain and suspension), 2005 Lotus Elise
