  1. New 1983 Spider Owner Work done on car so far

    Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    My wife and I made an impulse buy of a 1983 Spider. It had oversize 17" chrome rims when we bought it. My first job was to replace them with the stock 14" rims and tires. Here is what we had done so far with the help of a local mechanic. I am sure I have spent way more then the car is worth...
  2. Speedo/odo not working: '84 Spider Veloce

    Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    So, finally drove my new acquisition (1984 Spider Veloce) last Saturday and found out that neither the speedometer, nor the odometer are working. I've heard that the later S3 Spiders had electronic speedos, but as mine is the pre-facelift version, am I right in thinking it's mechanical? I'm...

    Buonasera! Well, I can't sleep, so I thought I should write! I just bought and drove home my first (new) alfa in 25 years: a silver '88 Milano Verde. :) It will need some work (the oil sender is supposedly leaking, and the water pump needs replacing). Hopefully I can link up with some of...
