Never collected my Alfas to make money, but here's my 2 cents!!
1975 Alfetta Race car bought 2000 for $4500.00 Now $12000.00. Can't even describe this car, but she's got many trophies that came with her. HMA may have an opinion since he's the only other person to drive her.
1975 Alfetta Sedan Bought 1995 for $2500.00 Now $6000.00 Totality original, even got the smog pump totality clean, NO RUST. Only thing bad paint from the Boyz in Italy, Those BASTARDS!
1985 GTV-6 Bought in 1993 for $4250.00 Now 14000.00. This car is totality original as well. It even got the Carello Wiper arms, and yes I have the Trash
Radial Wheels, just hate to drive with them on the car.
1972 Montreal Bought in 1997 for $17000.00. Not to get away from the forum posted. This car is also totality original. Nothing has been touched on this car, inside and out. Going through it this Winter. It's got an original tire still on it. GOK what this is worth.
All I can say is the 116 platform is finally getting the recognition they deserves.
As far as the cries above reguarding the upkeep, B.S. I've never had to lay on my back for long on any of these examples, just drive them.
My opinion is that these car issues and breakdowns are a result of the owners abusing the car and driving them incorrectly. In over 25 years of owning 116's I've never had these problems.
