    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Hi, Presently the car has a starting issue and we've decided to replace the ignition leads, cap, rotor, condenser, points and coil, (plugs already new) so at least we know that side of it is "as it should be".

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    This is an issue I find after starting the car from cold and has happened since I replaced the clutch and release bearing a few years ago.

  10. 105 Seat Decisions

    The Classic Alfa Romeos

I've heard mixed feelings on the ease of replacing the covers 2. The standard seats don't offer much lateral support for track days 3. Vinyl...

    General Alfa Discussion
    I took my 1977 Spider on a Pistonheads run yesterday morning. I was driving with Toyota MR2s, Westfields, Lotus 7s, Vauxhall VRX etc (it was a light rwd car club). I must say that I expected the Spider to get into a tangle if pushed too hard trying to keep up, what with it's 40+ year old...
