That's the best reply I've read so far on the argument whether or not to bringing one over.
The March issue of the british AutoItalia has a big Alfa Romeo feature. The last car covered is our beloved 'Il Mostro'. They list some superlatives without losing sight of some negatives.
Their assessment under the heading "Verdict" is:
"SZ values have remained constant for many years and most examples are still very low mileage. A buyer would not lose money on a purchase but with static values the SZ is unlikely to be an investment. The prospect, if running one as a daily driver, is interesting, but like any classic car used regularly it will require specialist maintenance and resourcefulness."
They caution parts are scarce or discontinued for:
Driveshafts, driveshaft center bearing, brake calipers, rotors, and side glass.
Look for corrosion at the bottom of C pillars, front jack points, and windscreen header
They give the following as a price guide:
1992 SZ, 2,600km $75,250, Spain.
1991 SZ, 7,000mi $39,400, UK.
1990 SZ 40,000mi $37,250, UK.
My opinion is their position on pricing and the examples given seem a little dated.
