Current Alfas - 1972 Spider, 1972 GTV, 1972 Berlina (advertised here a couple months ago), 1976 Alfetta GT, and 1983 GTV6 3.0.

OH MY GOD! The end of the world must be near, Brian Shorey has come to the dark side.

Welcome Brian, we need more "BS" on the AlfaBB. :P

Brian, I just click the "New Posts" link near the top of the window, and it tells what is new since my last visit. Usually, there is a manageable number of threads I'm interested in.

John,

We almost have enough local members to start an Alfa dealership!

Your spider looks great... I'm going to search the pictures forum to see if you posted anything.

Michael.

Just realized I never responded to this thread. I'm in Salem NH.

Brian, if you want to get notified of new messages within a certain forum such as any postings to the AONE area (or Spiders or Milanos etc) just got to the forum in question, say http://www.alfabb.com/bb/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=52 (for AONE) then in the lower green bar click in "Forum Tools" and select "Subcribe to this forum". Then you will get an e-mail each night at 3:00AM listing any of the threads in that forum that changed.

I'm here on occasion. I generally don't have time to keep up with the BB, or post here, but do come here from time to time.

I'm in Lenox, MA, and although I don't own any Alfas at the moment, I have been repairing Alfas and other European autos professionally for 20 + years now.

New Alfa owner

Hello Everyone,

I just purchased my first Alfa in July, a 1988 Spider Graduate in pretty decent
shape. She has 47,000 miles, has no rust, and runs just great, but I will have to learn how to be my own mechanic if I am going to be able to afford her.


I'm also new to the AlfaBB and I am just blown away at what a valuable
resource this is for me and all other Alfa owners.

I plan on joining AONE in January and hopefully attend a couple of events this
summer in my new (addiction? addition?) to the family.

Happy New Year and safe driving.

Dana, welcome aboard and congratulations on finding a rust-free gem here in the Salt Belt. We've had a lot of fun at AONE events and learned a lot in the process (like what those little numbers mean between checkpoints in a rally ). I've got cousins in Fairlee, and we spent a weekend in South Woodstock back in August. It's a breathtakingly beautiful state from one end to the other.

Canadian Alfista: I'm sure you'd be welcome although there's a lot of wet wheeling between Halifax and Mass. If the ferry's fairly tightly closed against the salt air and spray that might be a viable shortcut.

Thanks KennyG and MidLifeCrisis,

This car was from Pennsylvania originally and only came to Vermont in the last 18 months or so. Iím the fourth owner and have many (all?) receipts for the work done from the first owner onward. Even though there are a couple of issues that need to be dealt with , I think the car is in mostly original condition and simply needs the TLC that an 18 year old car needs to be happy.

Tell your cousins in Fairlee to keep an eye out for me (in May or so). The drive from Barre to Fairlee (Rt. 302 to Rt. 25) can be a fun one and I havenít driven in that direction yet. Vermont is a very beautiful place with many great roads to drive and I intend to drive them.

Hey CanadianAlfista!
It's close enough for me, why don't you get your Nova Scotia posse together
and drive to Vermont for an outing, can't be more than a 20 hour drive.

I hope to meet you all at an AONE event in the 2007.
Happy New Year!

20 hours in my 73, like heaven on earth , i drove to Hartford to buy an alfa once , i also sent $$ to a ANONE member once for his car , he was sick, at the thought and sent me my $$ back, **** Yankee, but it was a cream colored alfa , did'nt really want that color , makes an alfa look rather bland ( in my humble opinion )
