Coincidently I think the car is currently on TradeMe, minus the wheels it originally had.
That car looks exactly as I remember it even down to the year it arrived in NZ. Unfortunately the guys in ChCh that owned it -two brothers, one straight after the other were two rich guys who loved cars but didn`t really look after things- it was raced in our "Country Gents" meetings at Wigram (closed meetings-no "rif raf" you know-invited members only) and left outside unwashed unloved most of its life own here.
I can remember being in Merivale Mall one day when an announcement came over the system...would the owner of a silver Alfa Romeo please come out to the carpark immediately your car has deposited the contents of its fuel tank onto the bitumen and we have a very dangerous situation..It was just one downhill slide. I actually tried to buy the car because it was such a smart looking car, packed with a few special features, had an interesting history, and I felt compelled to save it from deteriorating further but I think it was traded in as part payment on another exotic....such is life. Wondered what happened to it but was told it had gone out of Christchurch.
