What`s this "sounding like an Aussie"-that`s tantamount to saying my Alfa looks like a Toyota. Good to have you aboard. I`m intrigued though-a South African living in Portugal? Do you see many old Alfas there, or any old cars for that matter? Was that your Spider in that workshop?

Sorry man,just teazing.I know the Kiwis don't like to be compared to the Australians,don't blame you!Have been living here since last year,had to leave SA(politics unbearable).Yes that is my Spider,had some major frontal repairs recently done after an accident.
You won't believe the amount of classic Alfas here in Portugal.Mine is the only 2000 Right-Hand drive here.'60 juniors are plenty.Most of the Alfas are in excellent condition,because the MOT is very strict.The authorities frown on a slight oil leak,common on classic Alfas.
Modifications are a no-no,even the tyres has to be factory spec.
I brought my Spider with from South Africa and running aftermarket Momo-Vegas with 185/60 tyres.I still have to get a letter from Alfa SA that confirms 185/60's are standard!...........Could be a problem.
Wish me luck!
I see you have quite a collection of classics,lucky man!
What's the weather like there?Is it Alfa friendly?
Are Alfas common there?
Where do you get your parts from?
I heard the drives there are very scenic.
