kuni123456 is absolutely correct.
Buy the best you can and even with $10,000 you can get a really good driver.
The people on this site are really helpful should you have any questions, and when you buy your Alfa (too late, you are hooked), they love to see pictures.
Unless you are really mechanical, get a pre-purchase inspection by a mechanic you trust, including getting under the car to check for the Alfa nemisi, rust and signs of a major collision.
When I purchased my Alfa, some 30 years ago, I saw a lot of beautiful shells that were completely rotted out underneath (not just Alfas, I looked at a lot of sports cars before buying my baby.)
If the seller won't go for a pre-purchase inspection, walk away, they are hiding something.
