What's the used Alfa Romeo Spider sports like?

The Alfa Romeo Spider is a soft-top sports car that looks and sounds great. Older cars in good condition can now be bargain buys. The owners' club can offer advice and recommend specialist garages, but Spiders are quite rare, so you'll have to scout about to find one.

The quick steering and raspy engines are tempting, but Spiders ride harshly and worn parts can make them feel vague and unpleasant to drive. The body shimmies and shakes more than that of the GTV coupe on which it's based.
