After many years of racing, of building Alfas for myself and others, and enjoying enduring friendships, it is time to clear out the shop and garage, and spend more time enjoying family and retirement. (And so Susan can finally park in the garage :) )

I have made up a list and a portfolio of photos which I'll try to attach to this post. If I'm not able to, I can send a CD of everything. I think the list and photos will answer most questions. Included are Alfa factory tools and tooling I made up to work on Alfas, but not my personal tools and shop equiptment.

I am selling everything as a package, so please don't ask for individual items, or a detailed itemization. Look at the pictures and read the matching list. $5000. FOB Casa Grande takes it all. It appears it will fit into a 16 ft U-Haul.

Thanks: I hope you have had as much fun and friendships with Alfas as I have. George

George, I understand the need to make changes in one's life. But I hope this doesn't mean that you're withdrawing from the Alfa community. You've always been a stalwart and have helped a great many people (including me). You'd be missed by many.

Bless you.

Thanks for all the inquiries and "cards and letters" from a great group of people, AlfaBBers. I believe I've emailed thanks and replies to everyone, but if I missed one of you, here's the "word".

No I'm not leaving the Alfa community or the AlfaBB, it's just the mind is willing, but the wrists are gettting weak. Must be from building all those thermostat actuators for so many years.

So I'll still be around to help answer questions, and sharing "what works and what doesn't work".

Last week all of my Alfa parts were loaded up and are gone. The buyer will continue watching the parts wanted postings and contact direct. So I can't supply any more parts, all I have is my Giulia Super and lots of fond memorys.

PS: the garage is almost reorganized and Susan has a place to park, she's happy!!
