It began with my first car, not an Alfa, a 1969 Pontiac Bonneville. After four years of college and countless hours working at my father's coffee shop I had a few bucks and was ready for a new ride. Trans Am's and Z-28's were the hot cars at the time, but they didn't "turn me on". One day I stumbled upon an ad for an Alfa Spider, black with brown interior, I had to see it. There it was,beautiful, well maintained, and always garaged, in other words, perfect. This was my new car. I jumped at the chance to own it and never looked back... even though I didn't know how to drive a stick. Now I own a Giulia Sprint GT and a 164. I love driving them both and often alternate driving them to our Sunday morning breakfast where we sit and talk about Alfas.
