gprocket - Thanks for the encouragement!
To All -
As promised here are the shots of the Alfa. My friend sent them over as he took them on the day the car came home. It remains tucked in the garage for at least a few more days as I await some new valve shims.
As you can see it has a hardtop. I do have a frame but no canvas - yet!
Beyond that the body seems pretty good which was part of the reason I went through with the purchase.
I look forward to the day I get to drive it as well as work on it. When I do I will post more photos.
Have a good rest of the weekend.
Thanks to all that chimed in on this thread.
