Yeah I feel like I'm in the swinging '60s when I get up to 8000rmp's. Groovy baby.

no, i think thebest part is that it can peg 8000 on the tach! engine is probably gonna need rings if the owner pegs 8000 so be prepared to dump another $5K into the car when you find out the bottom end is fried.

There's so much to poke fun at in this ad.

"all original glass"
- thank God it's not that dreaded aftermarket glass

"Starter, carbs, timing, shocks, drive lights, brakes, engine, frame, exhaust rebuilt"
- how do you rebuild the timing and "drive lights"?
- frame rebuilt? yikes!
- why would you rebuild the exhaust? just replace it.

"Matching engine and body numbers"
- is there such a thing for Alfas?

"Only $12,000, delivered"
- only?
- delivered anywhere?
