There is a 101 series spyder parked on Madison avenue in NYC for the last 9 days, it is collection tickets and is in danger of being towed .

It has CT plate 335 TYA and is red with red seats. It has suffered trough the recent storm and St Patrick's day parade. So anyone know who it belongs to ?

Crime fighting and social good. What a role for the AROCNE and the BB!! Very thoughtful. Seriously :)

still sitting there

it's been there for more than two weeks and it's in danger of being towed away

if you know the owner and he still wants it tell him to move it, if he is abandoning it let me know I'll take it ff his hands

right on my doorsetp

Hey it been three weeks and while it now sports a "broken" sign on the windshield it's not immune to NYC wreckers/tow men. If anyone really know the owner tell him to move ASAP or sell it to me !

Tsk, tsk, what a shame.:( Move this thread and pictures to the "Anything about Alfa Romeos and the Alfa bb" section. It will get more views.

Would it make sense to simply grab it and call the CT RMV to report its whereabouts and identify the owner for safe return? It's a rescue, not grand theft auto, right?

Call up the DMV and get a name and number. If it was my car i would rather have you tow it than the state!!

Let me add if the city tows that it will probably never be seen again...

However, I have a few safe places it could live until the owner calls the DMV

Weird. Either that car is stolen or the owner is in the hospital/dead.

It also very, very strange that the car has not been towed... Usually, its one ticket and next thing you know the tow truck is hauling it away... (Yes, I do know about these things! :rolleyes: ) I have never seen NYPD allow a car to just sit there for days with tickets, and not have it towed.

Best regards,
Enrique

If it were a Veloce, I would be taking it home myself - to help the owner, of course. :D

gone today !

As of this afternoon the spyder is gone, don't know if it was towed or picked up by owner. Saw tow trucks in neighborhood so I assume the worst. Anyone know what happened to it

If it wasn't put on a flatbed, nothing good could have happened. IMHO.

Maybe we can hope for the best, and the owner was a lurker on this bb, but wouldn't admit to leaving it there. The optimist in me says that he/she took care of it.

"I once was lost, but now I'm found...."

I cannot imagine anyone really abandoning that Alfa:( . On the other hand, it is often difficult to understand others motivations:confused: . Perhaps it has been "liberated":rolleyes: from the street to go on to a home where someone will appreciate it! ;) Lets all keep an eye on E-bay and Craigs list!
