Dear all, I am a new owner of a 1986 Alfa Spider Veloce in the Atlanta area.

Thanks in advance

Joining AROC Atlanta may be your best bet for referrals.

Hi Rob,

My best advice is to ask locals where they bring their car for service. Once you get a good recommendation for an independent shop give them a call and tell them what you have for a car and it's problem. If the owner says he's not familiar with an Alfa, keep looking.

You'll know you've found a qualified mechanic if he says something like. "It's just a four cylinder hooked to a five speed. What's the problem?"

Best of Luck

Dedicated Alfa service is no longer available in Atlanta, to my knowledge. Many Alfa club members use Roadspeed Garage in Cleveland, GA which is a long way to go. British cars are their main focus but folks have been happy with their Alfa expertise:

The RoadSpeed Garage for Vintage Sportscars

Rally Around is in the location of the old Autodelta shop on Clairmont Road:

Bob Hine is the proprietor of Hitch House and works on Alfas on the side. He used to run Autodelta:

I don't have any first hand experience with the first two. I was a customer of Hine when he was in the Alfa repair business and he knows his stuff but I don't know if he's really interested in Alfa repair anymore.
