John here from Glastonbury.
Recently purchased a '84 Spider to sooth the withdrawls of selling a 71 Karmann Ghia cabriolet.
So far the treatment is a sucess!
BTW, there is a garage here in town (http://www.importedautoct.com/
) that both the founder/owner and his son (Angelo) are long time Afisti. They don't advertise it per se, but they do work on Alfa's on what seems to be a fairly regular basis from what I see when I do a drive by or have had my daily drivers worked on. I've seen various model early 60's to 90's there at times
From my experience, nice folks to deal with, honest and reputable.
Any interest on the part of other Connecticut members to have an informal get together some time next year for a "shine and show"?
