Well I'm glad you found someone you are comfortable with, hard enough to find someone that can do the work, let alone well, with some passion, and that you also like! Mechanically my car is is now in very good general condition, the biggest issue is the body and paint. Realistically even the body is not that bad, but it does want attention, and the paint is terrible.

Just put her up on jacks for the winter today, and will start assessing the work more seriously. Guessing it will be damage control for the next year or so and try to contain the rust. After that will start stripping her down and get after it properly.

May come back to you for more info on your friend in Vancouver as I get closer to this. What all does he take on, and more importantly what is he strongest on, mechanicals, bodywork...?

New Calgary Spider

Hello All,
just came across this site and registered immediately

I've recently purchased a 1997 Alfa Spider, its the only one
of this year/model that I know of in Calgary, and in beautiful

*If there is another Spider of this year/style in town, pls. message me.

I'm currently looking for an experienced honest mechanic to
install DRL and complete my OOPI,

I read the posts of some other mechanic 'Butcher' jobs so I am
very cautious of who gets under the hood & 'Touches it'.

If anyone can please recommend an Honest and friendly mechanic that you have had experience with, I would greatly appreciate it

feel free to message me @

thanks, hope to see you on the road
