I love this thread !!
When I first posted , I had been watching the SZ and RZ for many years, but we couldn't get them here yet.
Now, I come from a serious 25 years, so far, Love affair with GTV6's. Owned way more than a few, saved a great many. Have driven them Literally about a million miles. 10 cross country trips in cars I bought on craigslist in SoCal, AZ, and drove home. Still got a bunch out back.
But when Alfa pulled out and didn't give us the SZ or RZ, I was seriously bummed !!
The Transaxle, Busso V6 legend was brought into a new chapter, and we couldn't get them,,.
I loved and drove the heck out of a lot of 164's of every letter but Q,, enjoyed them as Performance Luxury cars, They were wicked good winter cars with studded tires in front, but front wheel drive wasn't at all the same for me as the rear transaxle DeDion Experience.
Maybe if they brought them here, there would have been new chapters of SZ/RZ's developed !.
They were in the $20k's clean ten years ago, but we couldn't buy them yet.
As I had figured, when they passed the importation ban period, they would go up..
Hence my Original Post.
There are so few, and they are unique and actually perform/drive well,
my current opinion is $45-50K for a driver, to clean for $65K- $75K, top current market,,,

43 Alfas at the moment [ I think], I'll be able to tell better when the snow melts
