The 78 Alfetta sedan we bought had so much caster, making the steering so very very heavy, that the owner was anxious to get rid of it, even though it was absolutely pristine with only 20k miles on it. I reduced the caster quite a bit until the steering was just fine, and we ended up putting 160k+miles more ourselves on that car. The car now lives a fine life south of Boston. We thought it one of Alfa's better cars. And, BTW, never had a problem with the SPICA.
Still, it just didn't have the verve of the 75.
