Yesterday I said goodbye to my beautiful Spider! :(
It was a very sad day but my head had to rule my heart and let someone else have the pleasure of my beautiful car.
I had done less than 1k in the past year!
The only consolation is that I got a very good price for it and i can now look at my fat bank balance!
So it has now gone back to Norfolk where it came from and I'm driving a Volvo XC70 - which is much more practical for two wet and muddy dogs!
My Spider enabled me to have more fun than I could ever have imagined. Including two European AO trips one being the Alfa Centenary in Milan in 2010. I've met some fabulous people with whom I hope to keep in touch.
So now I will say goodbye and wish you all health, happiness and happy Alfa motoring!

Have fun with the Volvo, stick around though -there's plenty laughs remaining :)

Whichever way: drive safe!

Good luck with the XC (better than an A**I, :lol:) - I'll PM you later when I've got more time.

I'll keep an eye on what's going on but the Volvo/Audi would look a little out of place with the Alfa crowd! :lol:
One day I may get a GTV Spider (V6 of course) and come and join you all again!!! :cool:

Just saw this, the end of an era indeed! I remember the centenary and Goodwood FoS not long after.......

Don't be a stranger and make sure you get another Alfa someday.

Cheers,

Nigel

Indeed, that was a very special year! Had such a fantastic time driving around europe in my Spider! We did all the amazing mountain passes including Stelvio.
I still hanker after driving the Amalfi coast road in a Spider ........... one day maybe!

Do get a V6 916 Spider. I did and it is so much relatively cheap fun
Not sure about the relatively cheap bit yet, but to be sure I for one had never grinned as much as I have since I've got one.

Who knows what the future may bring........:D
