The Alfa Romeo Spider had a number of updates over its thirty year production run but the basic formula stayed the same over that time (1966-1994). The late series 3 spiders are not one of the more desirable versions with their rubber bumpers, porky curb weight, and smog-throttled engines, but this next example looks cool in black-on-black-on-black.

This next car comes as a tip from Erik202 who writes: I previously owned a series 3 version spider and I think outside of Duettos these S4 cars are the best looking generation.

Happy Columbus Day to all Italian-Americans out on the web, a day where we celebrate that crazy Genoese sailor who tried to find his way to the East (he probably wanted some JDM parts before you could overnight them from Japan…) by sailing West. It is also Canadian Thanksgiving (say what!?) but we’ll save our Turkey & Poutine Cacciatore jokes for the next feature. Sorey a boot that. Anyway, this Italian machine will need to get a ride on the next Niña, Pinta, or Santa Maria to head West across the Atlantic because it is located in The Netherlands, but Find this 1995 Alfa Romeo 164 Diesel offered for $3,499 buy-it-now or make-offer located in Ried, Netherlands via eBay.
I know what you are thinking. Another Fiberfab Aztec? Are you DT guys huffing paint again? But…they are so fabulously retro-futuristic that my head just about explodes each time another one comes in the tips email inbox. Maybe I should turn that off. Who am I kidding. I can’t deny that the future was better in the past and neither can you, so just stop. The only question you should ask is — why does this Aztec have a giant Mercedes-Benz emblem on the front? Find this 1981 Fiberfab Aztec 7 offered for $6,800 in San Antonio, TX via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!
This next car comes as a tip from Erik202 who writes: Without looking at this car in person it’s hard to say but my feeling is the seller is overly enthusiastic about it’s condition. That being said, there doesnt seem to be any rust and the interior looks to be in great shape minus one shift […]
Today’s next car isn’t something that’ll win some fancy prize at the next Amelia Island Concours D’Corpulence, or get you the front valet spot at some Michelin starred restaurant…but it could get you the front valet spot at your local Salsa Dancing spot (is dancing allowed during COVID19 crisis?) or spark a conversation with random […]
The Alfa Romeo Spider built from 1995-2006 was a replacement for the aging Alfa Spider Giulia (1966-1993). The Pininfarina designed exterior was a radical step forward in looks, but regrettably the car moved onto a transverse longitudinal front drive set up shaped with the contemporary GTV. The tipo 916 Spider was never sold new in […]
The Alfa Romeo 164 was designed by Enrico Fumia (designer of Grifo D’Oro Bertone, Siata Spring, Ferrari F90 & Lancia Ypsilon) when he worked at design house Pininfarina. The angular design was part of the Alfa Romeo, Fiat, Lancia and Saab cooperative agreement to develop the Type Four platform, which produced the Lancia Thema, Saab […]
This next car comes as tip from Erik202 who writes: Forums have the best deals. I swear it doesn’t get any better than forums. These cars continue to be criminally undervalued. I have to mostly agree with Erik202, because forums are places were diehard lovers of certain makes/models have a reputation, so they can’t go asking […]
The Mazda MX-5 Miata is a fun little sports car wrapped in a boring exterior (sorry Miata fanboys, the shape is pretty blah…with maybe the exception of the newest model that brings some more style than the OG jelly bean) that is unfortunately slathered with a thick brush of innuendo about the driver and his […]
