i have been down to my local shop a few times in the past 3 weeks, once to look at the cork board to look for an alfa spider for a freind.. these guys are ' cold ' not freindly at all.. they have no intrest in talking to you at all, even when they are just sitting around , doing nothing... humm...then tony at alfa's and subarus,is a great guy.. like to chat when he has time and see what you are doing to your car.

Here in Northern Alabama, it appears that I am the local Alfa shop. So. Pretty dang good, I'd say. Although La Voce is catchng up to me on Alfa body count and has an active project, while mine is on hold due to the latest Jeep disaster. (Thanks, honey bunny.)

"My Alfa Shop", Rathmann Auto Works, is owned by a member of the local AROC chapter and has hosted several club functions at his shop. Erik encourages members to stop by and talk about cars. We have monthly "Alfa & Espresso" weekend sessions, so I can say that we are supported well.

not that many options in manhattan but the alfa auto clinic is great place.

good quality work and nice people.

many alfa owners stop by on the weekends even if they are not getting work done on their car to say hello.

Pierres Repairs in Burlington is a great shop to visit. Very happy to see Alfas pull up to his shop. Always willing to drop his wrenches to talk. Very helpful !! Also I always stop down at Dublin Auto repair in Warwick, R.I. These guys are also very friendly and are always very helpful. Glad that they are in my area.

The Alfa Shop

Yesterday, I was on a cable car in San Fancisco and my wife saw a red 86 spider for sale on the side of the road. Of course, I jumped off and my wife reluctanty followed. The red sider was completely re-done with a 1 year warrenty. As it turns out, I was in front of the Alfa Shop on Columbus Ave. I must of talk to the Owner and Mechanic for at leat a half hour. Lets' see. They had at least series 3 Spiders, a quad, two series 2s and two boat tails. A 2000 and 1750 GTV and an old Fiat 500. While I was there a series two showed up on a trailer that came from Iowa. I guess these guys are doing well. We had a good time. BTW: My wife took the pictures. Today she wants me to go back and buy her the red spider that's for sale.

We have the two best Alfa parts shops in Australia here in Adelaide and at least seven specialist Alfa mechanics. They are all friendly and helpful. I always have a nice chat with the guys at The Spare place and Italservice when I go there. They are all Italians in those shops. I find that Italians are fond of chatting if they are not too busy. I really don't get people in business who are not friendly towards their customers. Apart from adding value to life it is also good for business. Friendly relationships with the people you come into contact with is what makes the world go round.

Here in S.E. Michigan we are lucky enough to have "TrailAuto" w/Dean Russell at the helm. He'll bend over backwards for you (some of us anyway; and he gets his share of jerks) Always will answer questions and chat when he is able. When the weather is decent; a number of us meet at his shop on Friday afternoons. He has worked on all my cars (even the non-Alfas) for over 30 years.............Ed K.

:D Yes indeed, as far as I'm aware here in North Alabama, on the South side of the Tennessee River it's "Larry's Alfa"; on the North side it's me; and on the river (well, almost) it's Flivesay. BTW anyone passing by the Huntsville area in an Alfa (for example, on I-65 enroute to the AROC convention but anytime really) is welcome to contact me in case you need assistance. Just file your flight plan with me via PM prior to departure that I may advise if I'm around that day.
