Alfa Romeo Forums and Information:

Are you in the market for a previously owned Alfa Romeo and want to learn more about the vehicle’s history before buying? If so, the NMVTIS (National Motor Vehicle Title Information System) offers consumers important vehicle history information. Simply search and select from a list of Approved NMVTIS Data Providers and request a NMVTIS vehicle history report. Information in the report includes:

  • Current and previous state/jurisdiction of title data
  • Title issue date
  • Latest odometer data
  • Theft history data (if any)
  • Any brand assigned to a vehicle and date applied
  • Salvage history, including designations as a “total loss” (if any)

Please note, these vendors are businesses. The longest established and best-known one is CarFax, (which Bring a Trailer uses). Also, the majority of these service providers are focused on cars made in the past decade; and most do not go back further than 1981, when 17-digit VINs were first mandated. Therefore this is of interest to people with newer cars, but not deep vintage ones.

  1. Hi, was looking to see who you all use for repairs. I used to go to Milano to Julio Matos, but his shop seems closed (though a couple of alfas are outside. I also use Doug Mitchell at Crown, but I heard he may have retired. My 86 spider won’t get gas to the engine in spite of new fuel pumps (tank and under car). Wanted to talk to someone, and if needed, have it towed to their facility. Thanks in advance… Say Hi to anyone there who remembers me.

  2. Questions regarding an 85 GTV6
    – What are the recommended lifting and jack stand points for the rear? I need to access the fuel filter / pump.
    – I have found that the molded fuel line exiting the filter is no longer available. Is the best solution for replacement to utilize standard hose and apply an arcing bend into the filter?
    – Is the fuel level sending unit accessible without having to pull the tank? I have not attempted to remove any interior pieces to determine access.

    Thanks

  3. Hey, I’m a former member from the ’70s and thought some of your current members may have an interest in an item I have for sale. It’s a Pocher 1/8th scale model of a 1931 Alfa 8C 2300 that was built as “Mulato” version. It is currently listed on Washington and Baltimore’s Craigs List with pictures. It’s listed under collectables. Thanks, Dave Collins
