A gent named John, from what his brother in law mentioned, he had just got it from Florida, last year. You can't miss the car..
Bright red, with if I can remember correctly, a large Alfa corse decal on the rear...and a few others. Plus some stripes..in the fashion of the Italian flag.
A super quick look on the inside, revealed a legit looking roll cage etc.etc..

I'll be sure to get more details of it this summer...and possibly post them in the 75/Milano forums section

Thanks, let me know the details when you find out, I'm interested in talking to him to see what he's done to the car or what was previously done.

Hello everyone in New England, it is almost spring, oops, another foot of snow coming today! I digress, I have sold my white spider on Back River Rd, Dover,NH. It is going to a nice guy in Georgia in April. I have purchased a 1971 GTV from Arizona and will be picking it up after the snow goes away. If anyone knows a reasonably priced paint person I would like an email [email protected]. The GTV needs very little body work, but does need paint. Cannot wait for spring so I, a devout roadster person, can find out first hand the appeal of GTV driving. Frank

Hey Roger,

I'm just over the state line in Longmeadow, Massachusetts. I'd love to see your car! I am restoring a 1965 Alfa Romeo Giulia Spider Veloce right now and have a 79 Spider in Florida. Take a look at my web site:

Let's talk Alfas over a cup of coffee,

Great looking site.

Hi Everyone,
I moved to Boston from Los Angeles this month. Brought my 1971 Spider 1750 with me - which now resides in Randolph, MA because garage space does not come easy in Boston. The car has spent almost its entire life in California:
3 years in Napa, long before my time. 34 years in Merced, in the Central Valley, 24 years of which it did not leave the garage (that is also minus thee years in a shed in Great Falls, MT, from which it apparently recovered), and finally less than a year in Los Angeles, less than a month of which it was operational.
Now it is here with me and I am very worried about what the weather is going to do to it after reading all the warnings from people on these forums.
Anyway, glad to be here and hopefully I will come across some of you in person over time.
Ryan

Welome to the neighborhood Ryan!

I think you'll find that New England weather will be quite gentle on your Spider as long as you put it away before November and resist the temptation to take it back out on the public roads before the end of April. I've done this with my hobby cars for 30 years and they always last as long as I care to keep them. You do have a winter-bomber right?

Best Regards,

Garret

Well, no, or maybe...I honestly have no idea what that is. Please elaborate.
