about like they are right now, says the guy who is writing checks to Scuderia and Eurospares...to be honest, I think the only way to service these is DIY. I would be terrified to roll up to a quickie lube or garden-variety mechanic's...Spares are bad enough when sold in our market, how will they cope in the US, added to the fact of no servicing experience of these cars?
Wow!!! Makes me feel good about mine!!Tell you what have gone up a bit in America, low mileage six speed coupes.

I’d argue that it was under-valued.Alfa SZ prices certainly boomed as they approached 25 years, maybe US driven or maybe just that they were woefully undervalued before then.
However my SZ had been in the US back in 1998 as detailed below in a article in Classic Cars

Even with the North American market...? Not arguing, just curious...I recall my first ever post on the subject of retained value of both the 3200 and 4200 back in 2005, where I asked which would retain its value the best.
Apart from the usual 32/42 banter, the consensus was that the 3200 would in fact go up in value 'in a couple of years'! Sadly, those views have turned to nought, and unless the car is a museum piece, they have all gone further south.
I think climbing values are a pipe dream for owners, and the cost of maintaining them in a decent state, along with inflation will outweigh any increase in value... there are simply too many and they will not be seen in the same way a Ferrari etc is.
In profile you really can see what an evolutionary leap it would have been from Gandini’s rejected proposal for the Ghibli II, which looks a bit like a Z31 300ZX/Honda CRX.View attachment 109268work of art Work of art
