I intend to support U.S. suppliers but the savings from my recent purchase from Classic Alfa went far beyond the domestic purchase cost. Including credit card and shipping charges. Again, we need to support our U.S. suppliers, but I must be my own best friend...

End result is I doubt whether we will see any cost savings.

But most definitely we need these companies to stay around!
Its a long time ago that the Italians had Lira - 2002 (as far as I remember) Italy and the majority of EU member states changed from local currencies to Euro. Exceptions were UKŁ, DKK, SKR. Since a lot of former Eastern block countries joined EU, but so far only a few have economy to join the Euro.

Most parts for classic Italian cars are rightly made in Italy and Germany.
