Hi everybody.
I was following Alfa BB for a while, but i never have the will to join in
I though " No I'm not going back in to Alfa's again" but.. here I am!
"Right when I though I was out.. They pull me back in !! "..
My last Alfa was a 79 Alfetta 4d and before that it was a 81 Spider and before that many others. I Haven't decided yet in what i want to get in to maybe Alfetta 2dr ?
I hope you guys will help me to decide what car to get and hopfully buy one from this forum.
Thank you for reading.
Franco.
PS: forgive my spelling English is not my first language.

Thank you guys.

How easy is to get in to a 79 Alfetta 2dr this days?
Is it doable or I should look at something different?

I rode around in a 4C and like it better than any of the eleven Alfas I have owned since 1968. The old Giulietta cars are good for a weekend drive, but not for everyday use and my Milanos are old cars and need to be replaced. I will buy a 4C and sell one of my Milanos. I purchased two new Alfetta sedans and they are prone to rusting and would not recommend buying one now. The Milanos do not rust like the Alfettas, but the last car was produced in 1989 and parts are harder to buy than in the past.

The car was delivered to an American in Switzerland and then imported to Los Angeles. My father purchased the car either in September or October 1961. The car always had fender mirrors instead of door mirrors. I believe that all cars sent to the USA in 1961 had to have door mirrors. I restored a 1957 Spider more than 40 years ago and that had a driver's side door mirror.

Beutifull job !!
Is that the proper location for the rear view mirror?
Yes--that was done in the day with most sports cars.

I mounted one out there on my first Super--a new 1969.

We did not mount them on the passenger side--too much wind resistance.

It provided very good rear-ward perspective.

Mirrors

For a moment i thought the car was from Japan.
But you'r provably right it was done like that in the old days

I have photos from 1961showing fender mirrors. The car has a European license plate holder and also had a small Swiss decal on the trunk.
