I was just wondering if that fellow (Brock) ever finished his V8 Spider conversion? (I was cruising the web and his thread came up) The reason I ask is that I have had a V8 (Ford HO 302 fuel injected, smog legal) 1978 Spider on the roads of San Diego for over 10 years. Stock front suspension (sport springs, yellow Konis), 9 inch rear (konis, again), stock brakes (racing pads), T-5 world class 5-spd., Ron Davis custom radiator, etc. It wasn't easy nor cheap and I would never do it again (I'd buy a used Ferrari), but it is VERY unique. Anybody know of another? It's been at the S.D. Italian Festa and Coronado speed week in the past 5/6 years so I know people have seen the car. I have not driven it the past couple of years as we were rebuilding our house after the fire, but it still exists and might be for sale (the Alfa purists HATE the car!). So, if you're still out there Brock, write me and we can share notes.
