Old school classic Italian sports car. 4 cyl 120 hp,  5 speed manual avg 25-28 mpg. Also known as a Poor Man's Ferrari. Wonderful and fun car to drive.

Been a daily driver for the last 2 years

The positives:  Strong engine and transmission. Excellent brakes and new tires this past spring. New catalytic converter. CD radio.Looks good with  decent paint in the correct Alfa Metalic Blue #370  only minor dings from regular use. Interior is decent and not torn up. Power windows work fine. Wipers work fine. Original seatbelts replaced with standard over the shoulder belts. Head lights, etc. work except for the turn signals.

The nagatives:  The top is old and worn but useable. Should be replaced to make the car look really good. The turn signals stopped working,  The air condition system is there and functions but will need an update and recharge. Speedometer dosent work, but the odometer trips the miles. Alternator is new a couple years ago and puts out 13.5 v , but the the volt meter on the dash does not read properly. Power mirrrors don't function and need to adjust mirrors by hand. Hand brake doesn't hold very well anymore. One of the trunk hinges came off so I use a support to hold trunk up.

The car has normal wear and tear reflecting regular use and age. Has approx 134,500 miles

If someone wants a nice car to drive and continue the restoration this is it at a fair price well below NADA book value.

I'll be glad to answer any questions.

Thanks for looking.

Note: If winning bidder does not want the car at the time of inspection and prior to delivery I will make a full refund.

Get lost in Evo's sublime 2013 Car of the Year testing

Fri, 08 Nov 2013 20:00:00 EST

Every year Evo stages its Car of the Year test, bringing the best performance cars in the world to one location for an epic shootout. This year the magazine pitted eight CotY finalists against each other on Route Napoleon in Southern France - Evo claims it's the "best road in the world" - and then proceeded to nitpick the smallest of faults on each car until the winner could be named. You see, this year's lineup of machines was just so good that only one car obviously wasn't CotY material from the get-go. Can you guess which one judging from the list below?
- Aston Martin V12 Vantage S
- Audi R8 V10 Plus

Fiat set to invest $12B on new models, stop Euro losses in 3 years

Mon, 09 Dec 2013 18:00:00 EST

Naturally, you'd expect a massive automaker like Fiat to have an in-depth plan to exit the current European-market doldrums, and you'd expect that plan to include plenty of new vehicles to attract those precious buyers that still remain despite the financial downturn. And you'd be right, though Fiat does seem to have a few unexpected twists up its corporate sleeve.
Perhaps the biggest shocker is a report that Fiat will completely drop the Punto, a car with mass-market appeal aimed at small-car buyers cross-shopping the popular Volkswagen Polo. Its replacement will be a five-door Fiat 500 aimed at upmarket buyers (sounds awfully similar to the 500L) that will be built in Poland. Lower-end customers will reportedly be served by variants of the Fiat Panda.
Borrowing a page from the BMW, Daimler and Volkswagen playbook, reports Automotive News, Fiat is said to have plans to reignite production at its Italian factories by retooling them to build high-end vehicles from Maserati and Alfa Romeo. These will be marketed as premium products, built by skilled Italian workers (who are paid wages that are 75-percent higher than those building Fiats in Poland), and will be sold around the world.

Mazda engineers urging execs for more RWD models

Wed, 02 Oct 2013 13:01:00 EST

According to Edmunds, Mazda engineers are pressuring the company to create more rear-wheel-drive models, in an effort to better differentiate itself from its rivals. This push is reportedly coming from middle and senior engineers within the company, and these folks at Mazda believe this rear-drive strategy would allow the automaker to produce more distinctive, fun to drive cars. Mazda discontinued the rear-drive (and rotary-engined) RX-8 a few years ago, leaving the MX-5 Miata as the company's only RWD offering.
As enthusiasts, we're fully on board with Mazda offering more rear-drive cars, but unsurprisingly, the company's top management isn't exactly keen on the idea - and with good reason. First and foremost, the cost associated with redesigning fresh architecture for new models would be very high, and considering the fact that Mazda hasn't exactly been raking in the dough lately, an expensive new venture like this doesn't make a whole lot of sense. What's more, Mazda's latest front-drive models - the Mazda3, Mazda6 and CX-5 - have been very well-received, and are helping the company gain sales momentum.
But that doesn't mean there aren't other options. Edmunds reminds us that Mazda is already partnering with Alfa Romeo on the next-generation Miata, and if this collaboration is successful, perhaps the relationship could bear additional fruit. After all, Alfa Romeo is said to be working on returning to its rear-wheel-drive roots, so Mazda's engineers might be able to make a case for more RWD goodness after all.
