I am new to this board. I bought my '74 Spider last year (November) after she had been sitting 7 years. I just sold my reliable responsible adult car (late model Toyota sedan) and now have some cash to put into my Alfa. She is in mostly original shape (I think?), and after replacing all the little cosmetic things that are making me crazy (dash cracks, old seat belts, etc) I expect my bill to be about $1050. But she is now my daily driver and I feel like I want to do some upgrades but don't know where to begin. The husband suggests electronic ignition, but what else? I thought about a chassis stiffener, but he says to do my shocks and springs first. I am also thinking about a carb upgrade, but I don't have a lot of cash left so I certainly can't do everything. What are the most immediate upgrades I should be thinking about? She runs ok, handles ok. Eventually, I would love to have a high-performance car. Any advice appreciated. I plan on ordering my parts this week.
