After reading Braden's Alfa Romeo Owner's Bible, I am now reading Alfa Romeo 105 Series Spider: The Complete Story by Talbott and Brown. I am REALLY enjoying it. It reminds me of the "good ole days", when I actually understood how a car works. I remember my regular "plugs, points, and condenser" tune-ups!!! I'm looking forward to a possible purchase of an S3 Spider, which will allow me to re-experience the past - clutch, manual transmission, no power steering, and no on-board computer. It would be more effort and input, but also - total connectedness!!!!
