I live in Hamilton, NY. I am also the founder/organizer of the Pasta Fazoom Rally which is held late Sept, completed 6th this year. Haven't gotten this year's pics up yet, had 34 cars entered. Visit site at www.pastafazoom.com
The 7th edition will be on the last Sunday in Sept 2005.
I'm also know as the western member of AONE.
Fiats and my 164S are my down fall

Hey Cal,
Welcome to the Alfabb!
How was the ride home in the Fiat from the AONE Sortie?
BTW: Thanks for the mags!

The Fiat works well. Which car/person were you at the AONE sortie.
the bigger question is, why the hell would you scuba dive in the country's most polluted lake????????????? I used to race canoes and after every race, when the weather was suitable,we racers would cool down by having a brief swim. There was a race that started at the SU boathouse at the end of the lake and we NEVER went in the water there no matter how how we were at race's end. In facet we would joke that if one wanted to commit suicide all we had to do was get in the water.
Put the Pasta Fazoom Rally on your calendar for next year. I promised Dave Pratt an article for the next Velocissima.
take care
Cal

Finally Got Her on the Road

Having just purchased my first Alfa, I was anxiously awaiting the arrival of the plates from the DMV so I could really drive her before winter set in. I got the plates on Friday and have been lucky with the weather here. What a blast! I have always owned big muscle cars in the past and all I can say is she is fun as hell to drive. Cal, good to here there is someone in the state that I can turn to along with my newfound friend in Watertown when I can't follow the wiring diagram! Here is a picture I took yesterday of the new toy!

A new owner of an 89 Spider Quad, the most fun car I have ever owned!

I hope to hear from DAS, who may be one of the closer Spider Quad [QUOTE]owners for me to meet.

roll call reply

I hope this is still roll call, i haven't quite got the hang of this message board yet!


My name is Evan and i live in Darien, CT and attend school at Boston Univ. This past august i bought my 88 milano verde from Giovanni Nardi of the greater boston area. You may have seen it in the Italian Car day at Larz Anderson, where it took first in it's class. I'm often around Fairfield county, CT letting the car "stretch it's legs" and let me know if anyone from the area ever want's to take a drive.

p.s. if anyone knows of a good mechanic in southwestern CT let me know, since Continental Garage closed up i've been lost and i need a transaxle bushing job!

No personal experience, but I've been told (by my Alfista attorney!) that Dominick's in Westchester is good. You're not too far from there, certainly no farther than you were from Continental.

Actually, yes, they did close sometime this summer. Try calling them. They're referring all their customers to Europa Motors in Hamden (which I think is Joe's cousin).

newbie

Hope people are still checking this thread because I just found this site 2 days ago and just purchased my first Alfa 3 weeks ago. It is an 88 Spider Graduate. I cant wait till spring to really start having fun with it. If there is anybody from or near NYC let me know.
