Yes, saw that recently, very pricey..£4000.  affraid 

Been driving Alfa's for years(luckily able  to do all my own repairs) and wouldn't mind one but not at that price.Anyway they've gone.. Laughing

The Charlatans made it sound pretty crap... Sad

Far from a good looking guitar.

As for the cars, ever owned one? Probably not!

Yep, very early 90's I had a 10 year old Sud, or should I say it had me!

Guitars are pretty hideous to my eyes, but I'm sure someone will love 'em to bits!!

I had an Alfetta GTV 6 for awhile years ago and, when it was going and on song, it was sex on wheels; just outrageously good fun but it did have "issues" especially with rust which, in a coastal country like New Zealand, is a death sentence.
That said, I love Alfas to bits and would have another in a heartbeat, especially a JTS Spyder...

Best v6 engine out there, by far.
A lot of cars from that era suffered from rust, not just Alfas

Having been a grease monkey for the majority of my working life  cars  are now just filthy things... Laughing  but I love 'em. Especially Alfas.
Here's 3 I've had. Currently a GT 2.0 JTDM

Aesthetics aside, they look like uncomfortable things to play - where's the bridge on that second one, by the way? Smile

Don't like the £4000. one at all as an instrument.

The other one is just wall art, hence the lack of bridge.

Alfa sheet metal did seem to be a little thinner than most and with no underseal etc. the poor bloody things suffered terribly.

That engine and transaxle were just sublime, though, and the road manners were nothing short of astonishing...

However, when all is said and done, having being lucky enough to sample Astons, Maseratis etc. in Jersey, it's a TVR Chimaera I lust after these days...

... talk about loving a challenge!!  Laughing

I loved my Alfa 166 3.0V6. It never went wrong, looked like sex-on-a-stick and guzzled fuel like it was going out of fashion. It had the Alfa Romeo symbol embroidered into the leather back rest on the seat and was really well equipped.

Oooh, I've come over all unnecessary now....
