1st Post...1979 Sprint Veloce (Alfetta GT)

Hello, my name is Bret and I'm finally introducing myself. I'll keep it brief and post more detailed stuff in the Alfetta forum. This is my 1st Alfa after toying with mainly old British cars for the last 30 years.

I've had the car for a little over a year but only driving for about 3 months after an Ingram Spica rebuild and some brake rebuilding. It's been a fun learning experience and I look forward to more work and hopefully a lot more driving.

Testing to see if I can reply (and up my post count) since I've tried to start a new thread seeking some help with Spica stuff and it didn't post.

I think you should lower the front end and remove that horrific tree in the yard!
