There you go, *thinking* again..There are a lot of people looking into and buying Alfas who don't realize that there is a club out there for them to join, a whole community waiting to embrace them on the local and national level. One small way that I have been working to get that word out is with a tag line that I include any time I advertise a car or part on e-Bay: "To maximize your enjoyment, be sure to join the Alfa Romeo Owners Club, at Alfa Romeo Owners Club USA | Home. " I would like to encourage others to do the same. This is also an effective way to spread the word about the Bulletin Board and other resources, of course. E-Bay sure gets a lot of traffic--a 1981 Spider I listed had more than 2,500 hits. The more these people get invited to join, the more we all can benefit.
