All:
The Alfa Romeo Owners Club chapter of New Jersey has an annual Fall Tour, which is a very fun drive with great stops. The invite is being extended to all who would like to participate, and it will take place on Saturday, September 15, 2007. The details are posted in the "NJAROC – Alfa Romeo Owners of NJ " forum. Click on "AROC Hudson Valley Tour - Sep 15, 2007" to get directly to the thread.

Best regards,
Enrique

Can't believe I missed it.

Hi
Bought a 1990 Spider just 2 months ago and trying to get hooked up with the NJ club. Just saw this post. I live in Sussex County NJ and this would have been a perfect opportunity to meet some folks.

I have so many questions about improving it's current condition!!

Welcome to the BB, Ray!

The NJ AROC is a great group, as are all the AROC chapters... Make sure you also check the NY AROC forum. There is a drive coming up Sep. 30th (Sunday) to the Hamptons, and they have made arrangements to enter the concours. The thread is titled "NYAROC - Bridgehampton Concorso & old track visit." (I'll probably not be able to make that one, since we may not be back from out-of-town. :()

To join the NJ chapter of the AROC give National a call (www.aroc-usa.org). You actually join the national organization, and select NJ as your local chapter. Since we are coming toward the end of the season, there really isn't much on the calendar. We have the Columbus Day parade on Oct. 7, which doesn't really attract a lot of the members, and then the dinner in November. The dinner is actually on a Sunday in the early afternoon, so we get to park all the cars, walk around, and have an overall good time. That event is very well attended. We'll have a date soon, and I will publish it on this forum.

Feel free to send a PM with a phone, if you would like more detailed info about the chapter.

Best regards,

Haven't figured out how to PM

Hi
Not sure how to do a PM. I'm listed in the phone book so what the heck.
My cell is 973 464 3366.

Sept 30 might work for me. I'll check out NY.

What's the general feeling about repaint. Alfa colors only or whatever floats your boat? I also have a 72 Jag and a 59 Morgan. Jag people are sticklers about factory colors whereas Morgan did every build custom so no one cares what colors you use.
Thanks for responding
Ray

I'll give you a call much later today (this evening), since I have to run out very soon...

For PMs, one way is to click on the userid (top left of the post) and then on "send a private message to"...

My very personal and not-so-humble opinion is the same as one Alfista I respect a lot told me once: "It's your car. Do what you want!" And I am one Alfista who does have a serious concours Spider. My only suggestion would be that if you are going to change the color of the car, then change it completely. Do pull the engine and tranny out, and have the engine compartment and the trunk painted in the same color. Of course, I assume that the finished product will look very nice. Do note as well that a normal paint job inside the engine bay and trunk is usually better than what the Alfa factory did. As far as how it this would affect concours competition, you can click on the underlined to check the downloads from the AROC web site, which include the National Concours Manual.

Best regards,
