All of us who own old Alfas and especially those of us who are lucky enough to work in the "old Alfa" business owe David a massive debt for what he did. He set the blueprint for what we do now.

Our thoughts go out to his family and especially Kevin and our friends at EB Spares who knew him better than we did and who will find the loss of David hits very hard.

Jim Spackman and all at Alfaholics.
Nicely put Jim. David made owning a classic Alfa in the UK affordable back in the 80s, a great loss.
