The Club has support and sponsorship by several well known sponsors.  Their efforts and knowledge is significant to local Alfisti.

To note here is the usual club link   http://www.alfaclubvic.org.au/content/view/20/33/

However one future option that may be taken is in creating a service directory where the club can develop contacts with other Alfa Workshops on a needs basis. 

I am sure that there are other Alfa Specialists in Box Hill, Thomastown and Dandenong but we have never found a specialist in the West  ?

Does someone have another workshop names to offer ?

Rankins Panels (Bayswater) do a bit of work on Alfas and are well known to Monza Motors etc.

Extreme Body Repairs (Dandenong) are well know in 900 series and concorso circles.

We have 'Il Bolide Rosso' in High Street Thornbury who has requested to advertise and become a club sponsor.  The Club had a restoration night there a few months ago.

Alfa Parts in Moorabbin has expressed interest in getting involved with the club.  I think he has the older Alfetta GT's and 90's there.

This is great, thanks. I have one last door to remove (have a few bolts to drill) and then will be taking them and some other bits to someone. Thanks.

Milanos has previously gone thru a bit of change.

The proprietor is interested in getting involved with the club again - especially with the growing use of the internet for sales.

Same with Donini Motors in Caulfield/Malvern East.

Also same with Arbarth Motors in South Melbourne.

Can not find one in the western suburbs.

I swear by Beninca's.

http://www.beninca.com.au/

They are very knowledgeable, trustworthy and mild-mannered. They are patient and very skilled. They don't trumpet themselves around - they have been good at what they do a long, long time!! I trust my GTV2000 there no question. I've tried some other places - one ripped me off $1000 and the other left with me failed brakes. The best thing about Beninca's is their depth of knowledge of HOW Alfa's work - you have to have that experience, as they are quirky in some ways. Good luck.  :)
