Baby It’s Cold Outside

Okay, so winter is not necessarily the best time to come out with your Alfa and play with the club. But, it is a great time to catch up on maintenance, watch some inspirational videos, shop for another toy or plan for the upcoming months. Here’s a little of each:

Maintenance: While I’ve been busy stitching the race GTV back together and doing some unplanned upgrades, you might want to tackle some less ambitious work: clean your interior (good mice prevention) and windows, change your oil, replace your tires (are they more than five years old?) and check the age of your battery to see if needs to be replaced.

Inspirational Videos: There’s no better way to burn through winter hours than watching some great car videos. Here are a few suggestions: Classic Car Snow Racing – St. Moritz, Fantastic GTA Racing at Goodwood, Great Transaxle Alfa Rally Footage, The New GTAm, Alfa Formula 1 Behind The Scenes, Giulia Oil Change, Alfa Restoration, Five Reasons Why You Need an Alfa Spider

Shopping: Now’s a great time to get some parts, buy some books or Alfa swag. But if you’re really hooked, you need to be shopping for something more substantial. Maybe a winter shopping trip to Paris is in order? If that’s too cold, how about Arizona? Too far? How about Florida?

Planning for 2023: Your DVAROC officers have been busy. We have some great events coming up:
