1979 Alfa Romeo SpiderReview
Fun — I love this car... and hate this car!!! I don't like how much money I've put into it over the years, and still couldn't come close to getting half that back if I wanted to sell it. Original parts are scarce, and very expensive. Would sell if it if I could get what I bought it for in 1987!!
Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)
Pros: Any convertible is fun. Handles very well. The harder you drive it, the better shape its in.
Cons: Parts too costly, hard to find,

All Time Classic
Very nice shape and the last real spider with rear wheel drive. Engine is weak and handling and braking is more like a boat than a car but it's an abolute cutie! Read More

I Love This Car
unique and fun to drive. Does not move on snow or ice. This is not a safe car, it's a fun car. I feel safe and in control because I enjoy shifting and manuevering. Not a family car, a little roadster Read More
This Car Is For Fun And That Is What It Delivers
Overall, I would do it all again. This car is known for its second gear grind (they all have it) Although this fine feature can now be easily repaired which is my next step. Parts are easy to come by.... Read More
Top Notch If You Know What You're Doing
The Alfa Romeo is a delicate breed with a prestigious history. The Quadrifoglio Spider is a terrific show car. Performance is fair, given it is not intended to be raced, yet enjoyed. Not a daily drive... Read More
