You really do live in wierd little world of your own, don't you? I've owned Alfas since a GT Junior in the 70s, and currently have in my possession 2 x 105 Giulia saloons, a 105 Spider, an Alfasud, an Alfetta GTV6, a 75 TS, a 155, a couple of 916 GTVs, a few 156s including a V6, and a few 147s. They all have their strengths and weaknesses, and with the possible exception of the Alfasud, which occupies its own wonderful niche (but still shares some parts with other Alfas (eg its front brake calipers are the same as 75/Alfetta rear calipers)), one can trace the development pattern from generation to generation - each handing over elements of its structure and machinery to the next, whilst being an incremental step in driving performance.
Sticking your head in the sand and insisting that nothing conceived after the 50s has any validity is the thing that is laughable. The TS engines are already over two decades old and still powering many good cars - the only reason they are not in production is the increasing need to develop new power units to meet increasingly stringent environmental standards. Much as I love the older cars, we have to face the reality that in many instances we simply won't be allowed to drive them anywhere because they'll fail emission controls.
