I am very happy to be the first US customer/delivery after 20 years of absence in the US Market. Several Alfa officials joined Werner of Miller and I for wonderful time and drive.

She is very beautiful. Her build quality is fantastic. Her fitted luggage wonderful. She's very nimble. Her exhaust is Fantastico and she's one fast Babe.

The 8C is just gorgeous - congratulations, again! I would encourage you to start a new thread in the Picture forum...

Also, any chance you may join us at one of either the NJ or NY Alfa Romeo Owners Club chapter functions? I know it's bold to ask, but I'm sure members would love to see your car. Those of us who got to see an 8C at the 2007 AROC National Convention in Detroit thought no prior picture we'd seen had done it justice...

Best regards,

Enrique

Congratulations Jim! Another great addition to your collection. It's nice to know the first one went to someone who will put lots of miles on it.

Lovely machine. I trust you are "Napolis" as in Napoli/Pomigliano d'Arco., where the car was built.

1975 Spider -- Long gone gateway drug
1983 Spider -- Dead: slowly parted-out on eBay
1974 Spider -- Sold, alas.
