Just moved to Taos a few weeks ago and am wondering if there are any other "Afflicted" in the Taos area. I suppose most NM members are in the Albq./SF/Los Alamos areas based on the posts to this forum.
Actually I have not yet moved my Alfa to NM as I don't have the garage space cleared up and ready- still opening up boxes- it's like Christmas every day around here. Which prompts a couple of other questions :
1.) Do you guys have informal gatherings, driving tours, etc., and when?
2.) If I have my '74 GTV transported out here from Dallas do any of you have personal experience with or know of reputable AND reasonably priced covered transport services? I have been offered the use of open trailers/tow trucks, etc. out of Dallas but I dread the logistics of that option and prefer to spare the car's paint, which is also why I won't just drive it out here- that and the fact that I'm 6'4" and I cramp too easily these days (picture John Cleese's Minister of Silly Walks on the side of Interstate 40).
I will assume from the few inquiries I have made that most transport will be to Albuquerque to a residence or possibly to a storage or holding yard. If the former, I would greatly appreciate any ideas as to where I could stash the little jewell till I could make the trip down...hint, hint,...:D

Dave- That's good to hear and I will hope you guys will post on the AlfaBB as to group gatherings, drives, etc.. It's a little lonesome up here as far as Alfa companionship. I wonder if your Taos Spider was the one I had spotted abandoned in a driveway in town a few years ago. Silver w/ blk. top? If so I'm really glad you beat me to it- I don't need any more spare parts or cars no matter how good the deal:D
Recently made a day trip to check out some great driving roads and possible loop routes on what turned out to be better than expected mountain roads. Taos to Tres Piedras to Abuqui back through Ojo Caliente to Pilar and back to Taos is a fine drive on a bright winter's day;) I had this notion that I would put the GTV away in Nov. and not drive it till May but am glad to say I was mistaken about the short driving season. As long as it's dry and sunny, right?
Yeah, I've already communicated w/ Gordon about a service question and possible short term storage after transport. Currently painting and prepping my little one car garage for the new resident- not our trusty Subaru- but don't tell my wife!
