I have always cars since I was a young I built models ,read I even had a racetrack set up around the tree instead of trains. I discovered European cars in my teens, I was always partial to and Italian cars, English not so

My first new car was a black 1984 VW I absolutely loved it. That car a 25 year run with VW / Audi, continues to this day (a 2007 GTI ) yet I always longed for an Italian car.

I always said I drove German because I afford Italian.

I drove an for the first time back in I was in Boulder Colorado. my cousin had a red series 3 Spider Quad. spending the day riding around as a passenger my cousin needed to go to his to pick up his catering van. was my chance, I got to drive the Spider to the house. We were planning on it up to Estes Park the next

I remember slipping behind the for the first time ,settling the sumptuous leather seats and for the uniquely placed gearshift first gear and pulling from the curb heading the open highway. Mountains in the top down. sun setting, listening to the exhaust note, ahhh was good.

As I made my way through the I noticed that the gearbox was a stiffer than my GTI, — German engineering as to Italian. I thought it was normal. I on my journey and the shifts became and more difficult. by the time I into my cousin’s garage I two hands to shift gears boy these Italian cars are I put the Alfa to bed for the night and crawled bed myself- looking forward to excursion to the mountains in the crimson beauty.

When I awoke the next my cousin asked how I liked the car I said — but the shifting is a different than my car — that’s part of the charm he My cousin went to pull the out of the garage while I was brushing my He came back in and announced we be bringing the Jeep to the mountains day. He then told me the gearbox fluid (what was of it ) was on the garage floor -apparently the was leaking all the way home !

My next drive in an Alfa was less eventful. I test a gorgeous ’92 164S- Red black interior and oh that red oh what a car. Bellissima! I couldn’t afford the Alfa then — so I had to be content my VW Corrado G60. I looked at in the classifieds from time to looked on E-bay occasionally but really seriously. Then I met my wife to be Janet. I thought if getting married I better get my now. A chance search on brought me to a beautiful ’92 Veloce — the car had a rebuilt and was in great condition — I Janet if she thought I should bid on it, she at me rolled her eyes and said crazy I took that as a YES and to place my bid. I followed the car all mentioned it to people at work of half kidding never I would win. When it down to the final day, I up with a crowd of people around my desk watching the frenzied moments of bidding at one point I typed in $110,000- a difference

a zero makes! Well to say I won (for far less than the by the way )

The following week on a rainy Janet and I ventured to Bensalem PA via NJ transit and insane taxi but it was all worth it when we pulled up to the and I saw the Spider for the first time there waiting for me. After a run through with the previous I was aching to get behind the wheel.

We our return trip to Long with the top up, about half way the weather started clearing. we at each other, nodded and the top. The rest of the trip we the true Alfa Spider — wind in the hair ,well at least Janet

I immediately joined the NYAROC I discovered a great group of very friendly. extremely and very very funny for Louie). We have plenty of fun throughout the year and great morning breakfasts! I am now a true
