"Nice car. Did you get a good price? Cry over parting with it or celebrate?"
I bought the car in 1973 from a Ferrari mechanic in San Francisco. He also had a Ferrari Daytona. He convinced me that the Daytona was too hard to steer in traffic ( I lived in S.F. at the time). This was the car that at one time was later worth about a half million dollars.
I was sorry about missing that one.
I put the Alfa on Craigslist for a low price since it was stored at my ranch in Mendocino County which is a two hour drive north of S.F.
I got well over a hundred emails and two people drove to the ranch just to see it. One brought a car trailer and bought it for about $4,500. It was in lousy shape but no rust. Great engine.
The Alfa nuts are an amazing bunch. Even got a call from the original mechanic. Told me the Ferrari was never sold, he kept it.
