Saw this one on eBay this morning:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Alfa-Romeo-Other-Touring-1962-alfa-romeo-2000-touring-runs-drives-project-car-39-k-miles-/121469800618?forcerrptr=true&hash=item1c482a10aa&item=121469800618&pt=US_Cars_Trucks#ht_139wt_920

alfa romeo Touring 2000, Buy It Now for $99,995.00 (only needs everything). OBTW, I sent the 'lister' a note letting them know that their Two Liter has 4 cylinders, not 6 as stated in their ad.

On another note, I drove our Blue 1959 yesterday for the first time in about 3 months and it was pure joy! Next stop the ethanol free gas station...:thumbup:

On first glance, it appears to be an excellent candidate for restoration. As that will cost somewhere between $50k and $125k, we might ask how long before 102s and 106s start bringing well over $200k?

Who among us 5 years ago thought they would bring over $100k?

Times, they are a changing.

A friend sold his very nice 1960 C.I. Two Liter in 2008 for $55K; now he would like to buy it back. At the time, it was considered 'well sold' but would now prove to have been a very wise investment as well. Surely his Two Liter, Iron Block would be worth over 100K today.

This brings up a good point and reminds me that these 'old' cars need to have regular appraisals and stated value insurance policies. Five years seems to go by very fast and it is quite easy to become over 50% self insured. If you don't have an appraisal from a reputable firm you may be asking for trouble. It is difficult to look at the twisted, dirty, often wet and rusting remains of a wrecked vehicle in a salvage yard and prove that it was once pristine and valued at the top of the market.
