I have a really nice 1991 red spider coming up for sale soon with 83K on it. Very well taken care of. Owner fixed every little thing on it, was very detail oriented. Once I get the go I will let you know if interested and send some pictures once taken. Everything is good but I will be checking it over to make a list of things that need to be repaired if any.
Top is excellent and I think nearly new, Interior is flawless, paint as well. May have 1 ding from memory. Just recently serviced with a valve adjustment, new exhaust and we where planning on new bilstiens and bushings throughout until the owner had to move to NY. So that is the reason for selling.
Let me know?
Thanks
Jason

1983 Spider Veloce

I'm partial to the older instrument pods myself... the 1986 and newer ones fit the cars of their era but I love the 1983-5 cars that have older instruments and wood steering wheel with the exterior updates. My main current Spider is such an '83 and is posted at http://photos.alfa-base.com/Rinata I've done a bare metal renovation and repaint, redone and upgraded the interior, and added some performance enhancements (Euro headers, air filter, Stebro stainless exhaust) to make this a very happy Spider. New top and tires etc. It's totally reliable; I drove it to Detroit and back for this year's Alfa convention and it did well both in track event and concours. I am not really looking to sell this car but if it rings someone's bell I'll listen to offers since I am raising funds to restore my '61 Spider.

love the color on your '83 spider, and yes i too prefer the dash pods of the pre 86 spiders , but i have really fell for the front end treatment of the 91's(body color bumper) and so i am torn,

and have REALLY been busy at my new job(which is the real reason for the spider, a short commute that i would rather make in a spider instead of my landcruiser)

so i havent decided on any car yet

Thanks,i watched youur "short street video" all i can say is WOW that thing sounds awesome!!!

Thanks, The general feeling around my house hold is it's too loud but I like it and it's street legal. It has a 2.5 ss exhaust system with a Bola flow through center muffler (no front resonator or rear muffler) In place of the front resonator I have an engineered merge collector from Burns Stainless.

Got pics just don't know how to attach
This is how I do it:

In your camera software go to edit and change the size of the picture to meet the upload requirements of 600 x 600. I found with my pictures you have to reduce it to 25%. If you crop the picture to just have the car in it and nothing else it will come out better.

Or you can scan the picture and save it in your documents.

Then in the manage attachments under "Additional Options" go to browse to find the picture you want to upload.

'85 triple-black S3 FS in NC

Doug,

After twenty-eight years, I'm out of the repair business, but I sold this car fifteen years ago to this fellow and it is really beautiful. He's in the armed forces and has put around 2K (mileage) on average a year on it and kept it up extremely well.

You can see pics and a short description at Krause & Associates, LLC - For Sale
