Feeling at home
Very nice...that is one tall shift lever in the Alfa.
It is 60 y.o. tech.!
and btw, never meant as more than sportý cars, certainly the Spiders.
This Alfa Spider was called the Duetto, which is the diminuative of play for two. Very much like runabout for two really 😊
I love the simplicity of older cars. Very few cars still give you the feeling of driving versus having gone for a drive.
I really want a Sunbeam Tiger but zero chance of finding one for reasonable money.
imo the Spyder is still quite a simple driving machine. More so if you chuck over 100 kilos of non essentials out 😀 and nostalgia apart, my old GTJ was way less car than my little Spyder and the Alfa Spider was/is a surprisingly unsettling car by Spyder standards. The ´old days´ were not just good as the technology has evolved in good ways too. The MR2 Spyder is imo a nice example. Morse so if you chuck over 100 kilos of non essentials out 🤣
