North Alabama spotting

While walking around the Sparkman center on Redstone Arsenal today I spotted an early 70s silver Spider, taking a corner at an appropriately high rate of speed. Are you on this bulletin board?

Spotted a very nice condition 164LS, champagne/tan metallic color...going north on I-95 near Philly Airport. Later, I had to go get some gas, and I often use a pump near the old DiFinizio dealership. There are still two 164's out there, as well as an S3 and an S4 spider. No financial interest, etc.....but I know there have been some threads on this forum about some of these cars....thought they would have been sold by now

I spotted a cream-colored S3 Spider today at lunch heading west on Ashlan Ave. in Fresno. I honked and waved and got a wave and big grin back!

I remarked to my passenger that only Fiat and Alfa owners seem to do that. I have yet to get a wave back from drivers of spiders of other marques.

Saw this sad looking '92 Spider automatic in Georgetown (DC) last week. I know it was a '92 because DC puts the car year in the window inspection sticker.



I also saw THREE 164s at one house in Ann Arbor tonight... just randomly drove past. I posted a ?? in the 164 forum... maybe it's somebody on here? I haven't seen an Alfa in Michigan since the snow fell.

Passed a red spider on 280 south, we got onto 380 to 101 and I exited off at El Camino Real. I recognize you from before. You were on your cell phone last time and this time too!

Maybe its Dean Russell's Alfa from Trail Auto. He is an amazing Alfa mechanic in Dearborn heights and very very nice personality. In case anyone looking for Alfa parts his contact info Trail auto 24349 Ann Arbor trail Dearborn heights, MI Tel 313-561-3327.

No, I'm pretty sure Dean doesn't live in Ann Arbor... Ann Arbor (the city, not the road named Ann Arbor Trail) is about 40 miles from Dearborn Heights.

I was just chatting with Dean earlier this week, actually!

3 spiders in a driveway (Fremont, CA)

Warm Springs Blvd. in Fremont, California.

3 spiders in a driveway. 2 black, 1 white/cream.

Just left Lemans Karting when I spotted the three spiders in someone's driveway. My friend's litte brother said that he passes that house all the time and the spiders are always there. Do they belong to anyone on the BB?

This afternoon I spotted BB member vintage prep on the 55 south in Costa Mesa. His Giulia Ti sure did look good. I was a few cars back in my Spider and got stuck behind some cars.
