Slo-Motion: Alfa Romeo Spider in Slovenia

If you remember the post with the green, somewhat modified Trabant in Hungary, I can report the nomad photographer of that car has now arrived in Slovenia, via Italy. Friend of Hooniverse, Frankiess was quick to take these couple shots of a red Alfa Romeo Spider almost immediately upon his arrival in Maribor.
The Alfa Romeo seems to have aged wonderfully gracefully, and it looks just about right. The five-spoke alloys – are those Cromodoras? – are small as tin can lids, but look like they belong.

Why the long face? Of course, the Alfa seems to have a couple of dents, and you can see one right there on the passenger door. That’s a battle scar, I guess.
Judging by the badging, the car has the two-litre Twin Cam engine, producing about 128 horsepower. The Series 3 cars, such as this, were made from 1983 to 1990.

    Dual binnacle gauges and low hard spoiler mark this as an ’85, although it may be an earler S3 with a retrofitted spoiler at repaint. I’m jelly – it’s in much better shape than mine.

    I visited Slovenia last summer. I hope he goes for a drive in the Julian alps, it’s absolutely staggering.

    The Alfa dealer in downtown Chicago has a cream ’82 Spider on their showroom floor. Were it that faint turquoise color, it would be in my garage.
