  2. GT (1963-1977)
    Hey, I'm reassembling my '74 GTV following a repaint and some body work. I've been replacing all the seals as I go and I can't get the front quarter light glass to seat properly in the new seal. Basically when I try to shut the window, the back edge of the glass catches on the seal and won't...

    Hello everyone, I'll start off by saying that I know next to nothing about cars, but am certainly willing to learn. I mean... I once successfully changed a tire on my VW Golf, but that's about it! I recently had the good fortune of inheriting a couple of Alfas. (Will be getting the keys...

    Thinking it's time to post here, have a bit of fun and perhaps solicit some help along the way. Here's the story basics: A 79 GT ('Sprint Veloce') car; bought in '82, pulled off the road for ground up resto in '85. Everything was stripped from the car but the wires. The project remains...
  9. Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    Hi. I’m new to the group. I’ve recently developed (rekindled) a fascination with Spiders, and have spent hours (days) researching options, what’s available out there, and various aspects of what too be on the lookout for with older Spiders. While I would love one from the 60’s, my meager...
  10. GT (1963-1977)
    I recently bought a GTV project that has pretty severe rust all around the front windshield. Would I be better off trying to cut out and repair these or just look for replacement parts? Replacements seem to be the better option in my opinion and if so, is there a website that I could buy these...

    I don't know jack about auto restoration except how to jack one up. I am ready to learn a new hobby because I'm getting too old to take up surfing and the water here is too cold.

  16. Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    A couple of weeks ago I went to the Hill Country Alfa club “coffee and cars” at Mozart’s in Austin and somebody (who shall remain nameless in case these postings prove to be incredibly boring) said “you should do a restoration thread on the Alfa BB”. Well....let’s give it a shot. Though for...
  17. Alfa Romeo Cars For Sale & Wanted
    I must sell my '71 Alfa Spider. From the feedback I received from the thread titled "restore vs part-out" it sounds like this car is worth restoring. We drove this car for many years before garaging it. I planned to return it to daily driver status many times over the years, but lacked the time...
