Thanks for sharing. I have owned 6 Alfa's. First was a 59 Sprint coupe and last was a 67 Duetto. I would trade my 718 for a 63 Sprint coupe in the drop of a hat. No nannies in those cars. Just great driving.
The classic Type 101 Alfa Spider is one of the prettiest cars ever built in my opinion.
I may never own one (more like I am owned by my little collection of Brit-cars), but if circumstances are right, that could change.
I have two friends who have large Alfa collections and fully understand the appeal.
I vintage-race in the under 1.3L class and I get to race a number of keen vintage Alfas.
