    Montreal, where the roads are paved with salt. Guarantee there's rust lurking.

    The Alfa 164 bodywork was constructed of galvanized steel. I had two for about ten years and they never showed any rust through many salt baths on Wisconsin roads in winter. Generally more of concern is the engine head gaskets, HVAC stepper motors, suspension bits, and steering rack mount. But… these are all fixable if you follow the Alfa blogs. When fixed up these are best handling sedans I've ever driven, and great long trip rides.

    FWD BMW E36 M3 is what the 164 Q was. One of the best handling fwd cars of the era, better that any hot hatch, and an engine that could be tuned for far more bhp. Hard to find in the US. Good winter car.
