      I'm following this because we have one rotting away in our parent's garage that they (mom) won't let me or my brother touch. Too much drama. Very sad.

      The Biarritz convertibles are pretty rare, aren't they?

      Edit....it's a coupe

      I'm watching this. The color is gorgeous and if I were to want an Audi, it would be just like this.

      Don't worry, we will find a weekend soon for you to drive my silver V8 around Orinda-grizzly peak while I swap into your SS.
      Shoot me a text and lets figure it out. I might make it to Sonoma on the 7th if my Dad can't make T Hill this weekend. He seemed super pumped for the invite, so I want to attend an event where he can drive too.

      I watch every Alfa GT that comes across.

      I would rather have a stepnose, but I watch all alfas.

      That one isn't doing it for me. If I'd get a Junior, it would need to be a step nose, and not have an ounce of rust on it.

      This one tickled my fancy.

      Wow that went for less than I would have guessed.

      I really liked this one.

      I'm torn between a unmolested junior step and a later hot rod GTV.

      I love the looks of a step, but man, I'd rather have a 2.0L. Or hell, find a GT Jr Step with a later 2.0L in it. Best of all worlds.

      Yeah, I'd like something that already had a swap or work done to it. I love the idea of a hot rod alfa, but don't think i could stomach doing it to a numbers matching step nose.

      I loved the peanut gallery on there. They really helped drive up the price on my 356. Then I had a guy come look at it and he spilled all over there about how nice it was, as soon as he said that it jumped another 10k. I'll be selling my 58 on there too after I take it through a show season. That site has the right people tapped; you put up a nice car that can be verified and it will sell for what its worth.

      you can not because its pretty much whatever is up for grabs at the time.

      the majority i would say are in the us, with canada 2nd. occasionally something is overseas, like a recent r34 skyline in norway i think it was.

      I gave up watching their auction section. The prices most of those cars command are too far beyond anything I can afford.

      Personally, I just visit the under 20k section. Often a lot of fun and unique pieces there too. Like this:


      1989 Nissan March Super Turbo - $7600

      The discussions make BAT.

      I worry that the knowledgeable commenters will get burned out with the increase in volume. How many times can Delia spout the same stuff about a Tii?

      That's my friend Eric's car. His builds are super meticulous. The other car is a nut and bolt restoration DR30 Skyline with RB26dett power.

      M88 scares me. High mileage M88 scares me. Getting it smogged in CA scares me. Hold me.

      That's about as good as a set of buffalo hides will look these days without re-dyeing.

      The car overall is one of the most desirable E24s but still scruffy enough to keep driving it. To me that is perfect.
