  1. Spider future classic

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all, Once the Spider reaches 15 years old will be classed a classic and qualifier for secondary car classic insurance?
  2. Classic Alfa Romeo 164 in funny comparison with a Tesla!?

    General Alfa Discussion
    Watch this crazy comparison. One guy made comparison with an old Alfa Romeo 164 with a V4 engine from 1994, with a Tesla model 3. What a great quality the old Alfa had. :rofl:
  3. Stonyhurst Classic Car Show

    Alfa 164 & 166
    I've just entered for this: Stonyhurst Classic Car & Motorcycle Show ? Sunday 11 August 2019 - Classic Shows 'cause it's cheaper than paying to get in on the gate! If anyone in the North West fancies a day out, I've never been before, but it looks like a cheap enough day out....
  4. Visiting Italy in your classic?

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Then you need to be very aware of the Low Emission Zones in place now (since the end of 2018) in most Italian cities and towns. We were taking our S2 to Italy this year with the AROC, looks like its going to be the 939 Spider now, lucky we have an option...
  5. Modern Classic ( definition ?)....

    General Alfa Discussion
    In Alfa terms...... A 166 could be 12 - 25 years old / A 156 could be 14 - 23 years old / A GT could be 9 - 16 years old what would qualify as a Modern Classic ...... just interested in what would be a concensus ? - Jim.

    On Lindholme Motor Sport Club 's Classic Tour last Sunday, 90 miles through North & West Yorks. Good weather, fantastic route, and a full entry of 52 crews. My '63 Ti Super Rep was the oldest car on the event. The old bus ran like a top. A great day had by all !

  10. NEC Classic car show

    General Motoring Discussion
    Popped along today for the first time in eight years. On the AROC stand - a gorgeous light green 1750 (or 2000) Berlina, a rarely seen or appreciated Alfa (I remember as a kid that hidden compartment in the rear armrest :)). There was also a V6 powered purple-ish Spider that was wonderful. A...

    General Motoring Discussion
    Anyone been watching this TV programme on Dave? If you can get past the awful presenters and silly format, there's been some really interesting cars featured so far. No Alfas yet though. https://dave.uktv.co.uk/shows/modern-wheels-or-classic-steals/
  14. Are you driving a future Classic?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi All I was a little shocked to read this report on shortlived cars - apparently there are only 8000 159s left (in GB?) and only 1500 Spiders! https://www.msn.com/en-gb/cars/enthusiasts/the-shortest-lived-cars-in-uk-history-how-many-do-you-remember/ss-BBOng65?li=BBoPJKX&ocid=mailsignout I...
  15. Ideas for a classic car project... ?

    General Motoring Discussion
    So... I'd really like to build a car. Buy an old shell with bare mechanicals and pretty much build the whole thing from scratch over a year or so. Not right now because I don't have a garage. But it's on my radar as something I'd like to accomplish in the near future. The question is... Which...

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Two blue S2's up for grabs This one was is good condition apart from the N/S sill which has had a terrible repair job done on it with lots of pigeon crap welding and rough edges, looks like its rotted out on the bottom edge and been "repaired" by welding up the holes rather than...
  18. Some rushed snaps of cars at the Bicester Classic Car show

    General Motoring Discussion
    There's no pattern to these. Just what I decided on the spur was worth a photo. And they'll doubtless all be upside down or sideways on.
  19. New to Alfa. Long time classic car nut.

    Introduce Yourself
    A friend has a 2008 Spider and I am smitten! I would like a 3.2 but UK annual tax is £550. Is the 1750 good?
