Few cars evoke the passionate experience that comes with owning an Alfa. Accelerating at 100-rpm increments just to hear exhaust note. Admiring the sensuous body styling and engine castings-so often copied in the designs of lesser cars.
Alfas can also be demanding, frustrating cars to own - they are not so much unreliable, as difficult to understand and troubleshoot when problems do arise.
Alfa Romeo Owner's Bible gives you precisely the kind of experienced information you need to serenely buy, maintain and drive an Alfa.
Head gasket repairs, valve adjustments, camshaft timing, carburetor and SPICA fuel injection tuning, and driveshaft "donut" replacement are just a few of the maintenance and repair procedures explained and backed up by hundreds of step-by-step photos.
The publication - Alfa Romeo Owner's Bible also offers expert advice things you should know when buying a used Alfa-where to look for rust, or sign of neglect or abuse - plus high-performance tuning for street and track, choosing accessories, and fascinating marque history.
