Alfas get a bad rap for reliability but that wasn't my experience at all with the 69 Spider. Bought it in Dallas about 1984-85 and used it every day, never let me down and this one has the Spica injection. Drove it in Minnesota too until my wife wanted me to sell it. At that point I concocted a plan to keep it, convinced her it'd sell for more with a fresh coat of paint. I tore it apart with no intention of finishing the paint job until years later. Well it's years later and the idea of doing it now doesn't even sound like fun. For less than 10k you can pick up a bunch of cars like a Mazda or Z3 or Z4 in pretty decent shape and just enjoy the ride.
