I was driving the Spider home from work, going south on Washington St. in S. Walpole, MA. Heading north towards me, comes a red convertable, as it's gets closer, I realize it looks like a later S3 Alfa Romeo Spider!! I flashed my lights, later realizing I hoped I didn't trick you into thinking there was a cop ahead. I waved as he got closer and he beeped back. Anybody from here on the BB??

Another try at this I spy thing.....
A co-worker just told me he spied 3 Spiders, 2 red and a Blue one, in formation, on Route 109 in Dedham a couple of nights ago. With a squadron like that, it's gotta be somebody who frequents this board.

Heavy Metal: I too noticed how many spy postings go un-noticed..

Today Tuesday AM at around 8:15 or so. Black S3 Spider traveling on US 3 south in Merrimack, NH near the Budwieser plant.

Later today saw this little beauty around noontime on Main street, Rt. 15 in Johnson, VT. Taken with a camera phone so quality ain't that great.

Two days in a row...another Alfa. Wednesday Sept 28 around 1:30 PM. On my way back from Portsmouth, NH, a dark green S4 Spider on NH 101 near the I-95 interchange. One question for the driver if a member of the board:though: WHY DID YOU HAVE YOUR TOP UP??? It was such a beautiful day!!

I passed (and honked/waved) a black S3 Spider this afternoon going N-bound on the Merritt Parkway, around New Canaan/Stamford, CT. I believe it had NJ plates. Anyone here?

I saw a black S3 Spider heading East on RT. 140 in the center of Bellingham, MA. I beeped and both passengers waved. I was glad to see they were using their Spider as a work vehicle. They had what looked like some Plastic Childrens Yard Toy draped all over the back shelf with some of the tubing snaking into the right passenger area.

Reminded me of the time I used my Spider to haul bags of leaves to the dump. I could fit six 30 gallon bags at a time. Two in the trunk, Two in the rear shelf and Two in the passenger seat area. My next door neighbor laughed and said, "I always thought those cars were toys, I guess I was wrong." Only problem I had was one of the bags ties came loose and I had leaves flying all over RT. 134 in Dennis, MA.

Ok, I was out yesterday in my Black 88 Graduate and no one saw me. I guess it is one out of ten or so. Drove to downtown Litchfield, north on 63 to Rt 44 in Canaan, then east through Norfolk to Collinsville to home. Geesshh. I thought I would see some one else out.

Me To

I was out on Saturday and Sunday in my spider and was on the lookout for other Alfisti as well. I zipped along on 25 to the Merrit to downtown Fairfield then up 59 on Saturday, then the merrit to Stamford and back on Sunday. No other Alfa's in sight. I saw two Ferrari's though.

Tell you one thing, Porsche drivers always waved and gave me the thumbs up as we passed each other.
