I shot the pictures... I haven't left the country in a couple years. That car is in the US which makes the background US as well. (Hint: Del should be watching the roads around where he lives.) Yes that is a new US spec Ford in the background. Since I happen to be a nice guy, I'll bring it to a local club event just to prove it exists. The other key thing is that dcalfa is right on the mark. It looks better in person than in pictures. Perhaps the camera adds a few pounds. When I first walked up to it, I wasn't sure about the look. It took a couple passes around it and it all started to fit and look really good. If you prefer the old spider, that is fine... this isn't that car. It doesn't look, sound, or drive like the old spider. It also has airbags, is reasonably comfortable, and sounds very good, though a bit quiet. It got a couple hundred miles on it last weekend... and yes Nicola, there was snow. Just not on the car or the roads it went on. It isn't licensed for general use on public roads but can be driven to special events. Come to think of it, whenever you drive somewhere in an Alfa it's a special event. I promised to put up a few more pictures and I will... when I get a chance.
