I was a good customer of Albert's and bought my Giulietta from him in 1987. Albert was indeed struck by a DUI while bicycling a number of years ago. He survived the accident but is wheelchair bound and his quality of life is not good. The last I heard he continues to live with his parents. The Autodelta shop continues as a going concern under Bob Hine. Thank goodness for that, since Paul Spruell closed and Hans Milo has cut back, there isn't anyplace left in Atlanta that's solely devoted to Alfa service.
Mike, as you prob know several of Spruell's mechanics ended up here: http://www.thebimmerstore.com/ They are now BMW and Lamborghini mechanics. Of course, they can take care of just about any Alfa too.
Went by there today after trying to call them and getting the "this number is not longer in service" recording. Looks like a new owner is taking over with in a month or so. Told me that the previous owner, Bob , had been in a car accident. Not sure if he was referring to the old owner Albert or not.
Anyway he said that he was still going to work on Alfas and expand his services to other makes.
Who still works on Alfa's in Atlanta? Found a shop in Smyrna, Italian Motor Works. Does anyone have any experience with this shop?
To find out more about the Deep South Chapter, go to Deep South Alfa Romeo Club. We have members all over the region, including a few in North, MS. Where in North MS are you? Feel free to e-mail Tim Spruill (Deep South President) at gofastwin @ gmail . com for more info.
I have recently relocated to NOLA and am looking for work. I have been around Italian cars for 30+ years and owned several Alfas. Currently investigating establishing a shop at the new race track in Avondale? Would love to hear from local Alfisti.

I am considering letting my mother have my '87 Milano. She has a Mazda 3 with an auto transmission, but though in her '70s, she misses getting to drive a stick and loves the Milano. (I have too many cars and would rather keep the car in the family than sell it.)
She lives in Mobile, AL so she...
Good Morning Fellow Track Junkies:
I hope this finds each of you enjoying another cool Fall. I for one think a more southern location in early December is a good idea.
Perhaps a Fall (remember Winter starts December 21st) trip to sunny, warm Daytona International Speedway for three days...
