Hi All - New Spider Owner Here

Hello Everyone,

Today I bought a gorgeous, silver 1991 Spider Veloce from California Cars in Thousand Oaks, CA! It's my first Alfa, and it's a beauty. It will be delivered to me next week, as it needs a cap for the coolant reservoir and a final once-over.

I've loved Alfa Spiders since about 1968 or 1969 - someone had a red Alfa Spider Duetto/black interior in the neighborhood in which I grew up. I was only 9 or 10, and every time I walked past it, I was entranced by it, and hoped I would own one some day....that day has arrived!

I'm really glad I found this forum, as it is a fantastic storehouse of knowledge for all things Alfa Romeo!

I look forward to exploring this forum more, and getting to know you all, as we all share a common bond/passion.

One question - where do I get an Alfa Romeo Owner's Club window sticker?

Here is a pic I took of my new baby at the dealership today.....

Talk later,
Jim

Congrats! They are definitely a car with a soul. Second the value of this board. I went from 0 - fairly competent from reading many of the threads and answers from fellow board members.

Hi again, and thanks for the welcome, and thanks for the tip on joining AROC, ghnl. I did read somewhere on this board after my initial post that they've stopped issuing the stickers, though....which is a bummer. I'll give it a shot anyway. Worst case - I could always print my own!

Talk later,
Jim

congratulations on your new alfa!

regarding the alfa romeo owners club decal, i was told by them that they stopped producing them, so they are no longer available.

I am reasonably certain that the club decal is available when you join AROC; in fact, when renewing annual membership, there is a prompt asking if you need another decal.

Also, in a shameless plug for the SoCal chapter, we would love for you to join, and come drive with us.

Please PM me for further details.

Cheers!

PS- These cars in silver are always striking!

I renewed my membership on the phone two months ago and the lady informed me that they stopped producing the decals a few years ago.

If you are doing it online definitely accept the prompt asking for another decal.

It can't hurt to try.

Hi Mr. Barrett - I joined up with AROC and the SoCal chapter as well, but never saw a prompt for a decal?

I need some time to adjust to driving a stick before I drive with you all, as I've driven automatics all my life....had one stick lesson 42 years ago as part of drivers ed at age 16...I'm a tad out of practice!

It was delivered to me today!!!!

Thanks, Everyone!
Jim
