With the success of BAT, there are numerous threads on the BB referencing Alfa's for sale on that website. It would be interesting to consolidate those comments on one thread. Here are the Alfa's currently for sale on BAT.

Very weird..... 1974 Alfa Romeo GTV 2000 It must be the Shanghai Auto Museum thing. I'm going to move my cars to a third world banana republic before i market them. FWIW I got blocked on any comments about the torn seat and stitching just waiting for a cold AM to pop. AFTER the auction was OVER. Full transparency is only as BaT see it.

The blue 74 did not have the best presentation as many key areas were not photographed. It had an RNM at $60K which seemed like a fair amount.

The reason for this thread was for a place to discuss these Auction cars without going through the BAT police.

Regarding the '74 GTV that was RNM at $60K yesterday: I thought that this comment said it all:

I would have taken $60k and been happy as heck. More $$$ now for a GTV? Isn’t there a pandemic going on that’s got everyone worried about the future?

Sure, this car might have been bid to $65 or $70K before the pandemic, but that's history now. Sellers need to either hold on to their cars (or homes, or stocks, or ....) until the market recovers or accept that the current market is a lot cooler than it was just a few months ago.

It wasn't as if the car was dead nuts stock and "unworn".. the seats were very tatty and torn .. the limit straps needed attention... 60 was about 15 more than I thought the car should bring. The GTV "'puppy mill" in SoCal was drawing blood in the mid-50' s so this one should have gone. Movie car.. Guatamala.. China..??? It all adds up to me to be a bunch of hooey... add a rebuilt engine at 20 something thousands miles???? nutty

Lots of fodder on the Sprint project, '58 Spider Veloce WITH correct split case (after the fact disclosed), and the Green Berlina.. all in one day yesterday... That was a rich field of 3 Alfas full of bidding irrationality that I can't comprehend and put my head around.. When the smoke cleared,there were two sellers yelling.... Eureka!.. and the other one has a huge hangover this AM. I still say when all said and done, this forum and Hemmings are the best places sell an Alfa. It might take more the 7 days (BaT) and you risk tire kickers bugging you but it is part of the process of selling a car. I think the virus thing really kept the Euro buyers home and money still flows into the stock market. On the Spider, one could sense the players weren't there by all the chatter about TOPS of all things and I believe the winner was flabbergasted he won. And then there is the part of the Spider making reserve... who would have figured that one?

The BaT auction of my ex-Montreal was fun, polite, and resulted in what I believe are a happy buyer and seller.
