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 Alfa for the first back in 1989- I was in Boulder my cousin had a beautiful red series 3 Quad. After spending the day around Boulder as a passenger my needed to go to his restaurant to pick up his van. That was my chance, I got to the Spider back to the house. We planning on driving it up to Estes the next day.

I remember behind the wheel for the first ,settling into the sumptuous seats and reaching for the uniquely gearshift knob,engaging first and pulling away from the heading toward the open Mountains in the distance, top down. sun listening to the throaty exhaust ahhh life was good.

As I my way through the gears I noticed the gearbox was a little stiffer my GTI, well — engineering as opposed to Italian. I it was normal. I continued on my journey and the became more and more by the time I pulled into my garage I needed two hands to gears — boy these cars are temperamental. I put the Alfa to bed for the and crawled into bed myself- forward to tomorrows excursion to the in the crimson Italian 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! needless to say I won (for

far less than the $110,000 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
