I took a couple of years off while attending New College in Sarasota FL, during which I earned some money, sold my stereo, and bought a 1969 Alfa Romeo Spider (similar to the car the Dustin Hoffman character has in the movie "The Graduate" -- his was a '67, which had slightly different running lights and a carburetor, while the '69 had mechanical fuel injection). In the year I owned it I put 20,000 miles on it. When I'd decided to return to college, I knew I had to sell the Alfa because I couldn't afford the cost of owning a car (and I needed the money) -- I took these pictures soon after I had the body cleaned up and repainted.
