Price for decent GTV's normally start around $8-9K and go up to $20K or so. Which is a bit higher prices than most 2002's (read decent 02's in similar condition start around $5K). GTA's are in the stratosphere with nice cars hitting $35K or much more.

New parts are available... and are a bit more spendy than 02 stuff (read 40% more on average). Used parts.. are much harder to come by, mainly because there are fewer Alfa's being parted than 02's.

They're fun cars. Just be aware that the tinworm is very bad for alfa's.. they seem very prone to rust much more so than 02's of the same year and in the same area of the country. I've been wanting one for 5-8 years now and a, still trying to find a good one. Most have lots of hidden rust. I want a 67' --pre smog, free reving 1600 engine. It would be nice to find a GTA but I've given up that search... at least if I want to spend less than $20-25K.

So now I'm thinking Lotus Cortina... if I can find a nice early one w/aluminum door skins and trunk lid. But they're rarer than hen's teeth now in the USA. A friend of mine has a really nice 65' that I drool over now and then.

those were the cars I drooled over in the early 70's.

I have this picture forever burned in memory of a

white GTV hauling ass on the Panamerican

Highway in Panama. I have owned the last two,

never even driven an GTV, there is one in town just

sitting, uhmmm, maybe is my last chance to

complete the trilogy...

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
