If there's any Alfisti in the central Arizona area I'd be pleased to meet you.
Welcome. I just moved out of Flagstaff for San Diego. Anyway, welcome to the club. There are a few down in Prescott I can get you in touch with.

Hi Jason,

Thanks for the welcome. I lived in San Diego for about 30 years before I moved to Prescott. I'm sure you'll do well in S.D. as it's a great city for a car guy.
In the last couple of weeks I've touched base with three Alfa loonies here in Yavapai county and they seem to be a an enthusiastic, hands-on bunch

Today is a big day. The 4 of us will congregate in my garage for a "cam party"!!
My Alfetta and Jeff's Alfetta will be getting new intake cams and valve adjustments.

Mine will also get the driveshaft installed and we'll tinker with whatever else needs it.

What a guy!! He's gonna fit right in. I'm moving my Spider out in a few to make room for your Alfetta.

"Treat for lunch." ??????????

I guess Alfisti are optimists by nature.

We tried this trick with our LeMons team work days. It never worked either!
re: Alfa work parties. A few years ago a buddy, Randy H, and I needed to pull engines. So I flat towed my Alfetta to his driveway. 2 hours, 2 Alfetta engines pulled.
Pics of the work party would be cool.
