  1. 34 years and still going; the longest Alfetta restoration ever?

    Alfetta & GTV6 (1972-1986)
    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...
  2. Seeking Advice - Buying a Spider - Body Work or Engine Work?

    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...
  3. 1973 GTV A-Pillar Repair Options

    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...

    Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)

    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...
