Listed here is a fine example of a 1962 Alfa Romeo 101 Spider
roadster.. This Spider was a ground up restoration completed in
2009 to meet our desire to have a street legal weekend driver
either on country roads or track days. It is very adept at both. We
started with an example which was no longer stock, used the best
parts with a theme to up the performance from stock to keep up with
today's more modern cars. This Spider has been shown often at AROC
events as well as the Concorso Italiano in Monterey. Full
documentation of the build as well a a full appraisal done in 2010
is available for review. The best way to appreciate this car is to
come and inspect it and test drive it for yourself.
