Mechanic in New Orleans

Hello Everyone,
I have recently relocated to NOLA and am looking for work. I have been around Italian cars for 30+ years and owned several Alfas. Currently investigating establishing a shop at the new race track in Avondale? Would love to hear from local Alfisti.

Email Tim Spruill, semi-local (B.R. area) should be linked through previous posts under his name. He is AROC chapter president, good place to start.

Jeff - In coastal Alabama with one Alfa that runs.....
and only two more gathering parts.

Hi David,

I am in need of an alfa mechanic, can you please call me @ 504 450-1066?

Also you mention working at the track, do you mean NOLA Motorsports? If so that would be great but I would like to know, thinking about selling my 67 Alfa race car, in fact have an offer on the table so a quick response would be ideal.

Thanks

Hello New Orleans! Yes the brand new NOLA Motorsports Park is scheduled to be open by the end of the year. I am working in the Speed Shop and am excited to tell that our new facility is filled with all the latest equipment and a well seasoned staff that can handle just about any auto job. This place is crazy good and we will be hosting a Grand Opening Party early next year and it is my hope that a large number of Alfisti will show! You can all be my personal guests!
I spoke to Jeff and he is coming by tomorrow. Stay tuned for more!

Looks like I found you before you found me. Glad to have a real life Alfa mechanic in the area. We have several cars down your way in need of a mechanic. Best recommendation I can give is to join the club and come to a meeting or two. Within no time you will be Alfas in need rolling, driving, or being towed to your shop!

I know of at least one car owner who is in dire need of a mechanic. Send me a PM for more info.

I guess it is even more ironic that there was at least one person who contacted me looking for a mechanic in the Slidell area!! If only I had known you were there!

On 12/29 I was involved in the aftermath of the 40 car pile up on I10 and lost our families perfect Mercedes Benz. Insurance will not give me very much for the car. I am considering buying an Alfa to replace it. I was thinking about a transaxle car if anyone has any ideas contact me. I also have a boat to trade if that helps?

Syngenta Car Show

Anyone going to this Show on Saturday in Gonzales?

Might bring the 89 Spider I just finished quite a bit of work on.

Gonzales show

Wish I could go to the show, but the list of things needing to be done keeps getting longer. I hope there will be at least a few Alfas there.

Take pics and post them, please.

Ciao,

Mike

I am considering going in whatever Alfa is running at the moment. Not sure yet. Weekend is filling up fast.

are you still in New Orleans? There were 3 alfa spiders in my neighborhood alone. I recently moved to Hammond and I have 2 1986 spider veloce and I could use an experienced mechanic right now to help me out with an ignition problem

Yes I am still in New Orleans and have a small shop at the track (NOLA Motorsports Park) in the rental garages. I have the GTA clone there and will be replacing a clutch in a 87 Spider this week.
I have also spent considerable time collecting the special tools to properly set up and adjust SPICA fuel injection.
Today I met Tim Spruill at Circuit Grand Bayou. Great guy.
