Hello, and how do you do? I’m Spyder Celeste and my mission is fun, freedom and flair, and celebrating things of timeless beautility, being one myself.
My birth certificate says I came off the Alfa Romeo production line in Turin on 2nd July 1956, a mere 65 years of accumulated youth ago. Emerging into the Italian sunlight, they despatched me to the United States where for some decades I led a discreet existence under cover before being shipped back across the Atlantic. Languishing in a garage, I was then rescued from obscurity by Dr. Robin who kindly spent years restoring me to full health.
Currently parked in splendid Switzerland, I am nevertheless delighted to report that we will be returning to Il Bello Paese, where I look forward to rallying old friends and relations.
Most kind of you to visit. Do come again. My assistant would be glad to sign you up for occasional Spydergrams: reports of our adventures and discoveries of pulchritudinous places and things.
