We owners of Series 1 Spiders are being shown up by the Series II youngsters. I think it is time we corrected this and, as one of the newest Series I owners, I m happy to start. We have got a long way to go to catch up to the Series II owners so start posting away.

I got my car on Friday and took it for its first drive on Saturday. It was a beautiful autumn day in Sydney, ideal for top down motoring and taking photos of my new best friend.














Shortly after I took these photos, I was approached by a woman who asked if she could photograph her daughter next to my car. One day old and already being used for a fashion shoot:D

The world is definitely a better place behind the wheel of a Spider. People smile, give you a gap in traffic, talk to you about your car, etc. Gives one a good feeling.

These are a few shots of my car the day after I got it too......Poor quality from my phone I'm afraid.......

I have to agree with Charles, I've never been so popular since I got this...........wish I was 25 years younger!

Here's my '69 1750 - owned her since 1977 and back on the road after 31 years of "resting".

The window crank and grab handle on the driver's door have both now been changed to the correct type!!

Also - the front side markers have been replaced with genuine Carello units (as per the last picture)

(I bought red Carello side markers and replacement orange lenses from the US and put together some "NOS" front markers)

OK, I have to throw my hat in the ring. Most of these pics are on the BB here somewhere, but not all in one place. I've had this car for 26 years. It started out pretty rough, but even then it was a blast to drive. Always a work in progress, but it has never left me stuck on the side of the road and I don't hesitate to drive it anywhere.

Charles, you inspired me to pull mine out today (after it hiding out in a corner of my studio for over 12 months ) Congrats on your purchase ( I heard you were looking for a while ) I think you bought the right car . Many years of happy motoring and hope to bump into you on Sydney's roads some time.

Frank .

I've posted these before, but it is nice seeing all the series 1's in one place. Stumbled upon the green one on the internet somewhere, so thought it would be a nice addition to the thread. Hope i'm not violating any copyrights:rolleyes:

1967 Duetto - White over Red

Greetings:

Great to have a Series I thread! Here are a few shots of my lovely 1967 Duetto. We will be attending the Toronto Convention in the Duetto, including the Pretour starting in 2 days! Quite a workout, but I trust she is up to it.

My principessa is as snug as a bug in a rug

This thread is coming on great but we need lots more people to post photos. Keep them coming!

Here's one of my princess with her new indoor cover on. It is winter here in Sydney and it's cold you know:D

The roundtails are my favorite convertible, something so sleek and classic about them.

Beautiful cars guys - gotta get me one after the 66 GTV's built.
