I last purchased some parts from them a few years ago, they are a very valuable resource in the Alfa community.
    Had to have been! That shop is 3 miles from my house on Belair Rd. I've driven by it so many times. I'll stop by and look at some cars!

    Will do-- thanks!!

    You did the process right and ended up with an awesome car. Can't wait to see it and go for a ride. Modern day zhp? High praise indeed, but you know what I'm gonna say: she needs a third pedal!!!

    Totally get it. I question the wisdom sometimes when I think about the ZHP comfy in the garage while the spanking new Alfa is sitting in the weather out front.

    I can't wait to hear your thoughts after you drive her. Agreed on the third pedal-- but, man, that era is quickly coming to an end. It's going to get harder and harder to find one. For now, the paddle shifters in manual mode at least give me some level of additional input and control.

    That's a big part of the reason I kept the ZHP. I want to ensure I always have a gearbox to row.

    Well done, sir. Believe it or not, I've not seen a similar Alfa here in Austin TX. I think there's not a local dealer. BTW, your zhp and mine share the same license plate (diff states, of course).

    Thanks! Time for some tires, though-- the Bridgestone Turanzas are like driving on hockey pucks. Needs some Michelins.
