Crapwagon Outtake: You Don't Have To Wait For A $30k Alfa Giulia
July 7th, 2014 1:38 PM Share
Why wait to pay $30,000 for Alfa’s new, long-rumored, often-postponed rear-drive Giulia when you can have one right now?
Bring A Trailer has this example, lovingly cared for by Automobile Magazine’s Jamie Kitman, for as much as an Audi A3. Like all of Kitman’s vintage motors, this one is in tip-top shape and has an interesting history to go along with it, having made the trip from Rome to New York via London. If anyone is interested, you can contact Jamie through the BaT ad.

looking at those work orders it appears that being a magazine editor paid pretty well, considering he could afford to pay $95/hr to replace light bulbs and pop hubcaps on. spray the bottom of the car with truck bedliner. a lot of shadetree stuff, most people that liked cars could do on their own
The nose looks repainted. Maybe its the lighting, but it really REALLY looks resprayed.
Hell, way back when you could buy these things new, I thought they looked gawky and ill-proportioned. Five years living in the UK in the early 1970s did not improve my opinion. The only decent looking Alfas were the 1750 GTVs and their predecessors. Nice drive as well, yes indeed. That droopy-arsed Alfa in the Graduate movie was awkward looking as well. Never looked desirable to me. Of all the cars you could restore, why on earth would you pick this underachiever sedan, mostly used as an Italian cop car or taxi? Utterly forgettable.
why would any car nut even consider an italian car. their track record over the years speak for itself. great looks but all kinds of problems. if you thought engish cars were bad, you hadn't tried an italian car. Starting to sound like GM, huh?
