A well-written and interesting article. Nice to read as opposed to a certain YouTube journalist we commented on recently.
Regards,
Brian

They exist but demand exceeds supply.

I think I will pass old Alfa's just mean trouble. Not much enjoyment I like prewar Afla's and early 50's the rest return doesn't add up to pain.

I wouldn't mind owning an Alfa at some point. The one I like is the Montreal, but I don't think they are conducive to long term sanity.

That's what my 164 Lusso Super was like ....one part sublime touring and one part feral rat!
As for a Montreal; wonderful looking car but like a CitroŽn SM it may be best left as a decoration in the garage and driven only once a year ...

Yes lusting for a Montreal is something I must admit I do. But like the SM I would most likely end in tears or a nice white room with a comfortable fitting jacket.

There are always some cars that one lusts after from time to time and over a period of time. I haven't seen an Alfasud for years, but rust formed a predominance to their DNA. Besides, the boxy shape did not appeal to me, and the interior could be considered as tacky at best. Personally, I have always looked upon the Alfa 2600 as a true collectible, but I have only ever seen one - at Eastern Creek. It's a rare commodity.

Another favourite make, to my taste anyway,are the Lancias. Superb Engineering, even the right evocative names - just to try some. Flaminia with gearbox/diff transaxle arrangement, Fulvia with tiny 1.3/1.6 V4, Flavia HF 2000 and who could forget the Coupe of the sixties. I would love to start all over again, utilising my knowledge of cars accumulated over the years. Regards. Styria


N.B. Not to forget the Aurelia, plus others whose names I can't recall presently.
