Accidentally bought a 916 Spider.
So I just bought a 916 Spider a couple of months ago. It had 95,000 kms on the odo, and was in pretty good shape and ran fine, except for a little trouble with selecting the reverse gear.
When I bought this car, I had no idea what I was getting into. It is a beautiful machine, inside out. The looks, the drive, the sound, everything is wonderful. I'm looking forward to bringing this car up to near-mint condition as best as I can. The car has already taught me a lot about automotive engineering and history. This is my first brush with this marque (or anything Italian), and I can safely say I'm nothing short of delighted with the car.
Glad to find there is an active owners club, no matter how small. Would be interesting to meet other people with Alfas, and get advice and help with issues i'm having. Does the club meet regularly? When's the next meeting due? I'm probably gonna be the youngest member (26 years old).
