I originally bought the car for its parts for my Giulia Coupe and even used some bits for my Alfetta GTV.
I was thinking of scrapping it many times but I could not get someone to come and dismantle it.
However recently my tinker who "retired" after completing my 3 Alfas called me and said he might be interested in doing some work again. I showed him this car and to my surprise he said that it could be saved. I was still quite skeptical though when I thought about the cost and effort required. I slept on it for a few weeks.
The more I thought about it though, it was hard to scrap this car for several reasons.
1. It's a classic Alfa Romeo - I mean just how many survivors are around in this country? You can count them with your fingers.
2. Although not a great looking car by Alfa standards, it's an inoffensive 132 bhp 5 speed Sedan with a glorious engine and gearbox.
3. This particular car has some good race history in this country.
4. Almost every fitting and trim bits are intact.
5. I'm a bit mad
