    So many great pics to look over. I always thought the Alfa Romeo Sprint Speciale was one of the best looking Afla Romeo car of its time and highly over looked as well. Not mention what great aerodynamics these cars had back in the day was truely impressive. Also Im sure this car is a treat to listen to with that brilliant DOHC engine singing out .

    I never knew these were overlooked by Alfisti and I can't for the life of me understand why they were. I think it's mind-bogglingly beautiful and probably one of the best looking Alfas of all time (although that could be said about quite a few of the Alfa Romeos from the 50's and 60's). However, that's quite a sick appreciation rate and it puts the Sprint Speciale firmly out of my reach (for now).

    Remember looking an immaculate one in an auction in London about 10 years ago. I think the reserve was about £22,000 and that seemed expensive at the time. Wish I had known then what they would be worth now, but can say that about a lot of cars :(

    Unfortunately the history seems to be filled with similar tales. Sometimes I wish I was 20 years older, so I could have bought cars in the 80's. A relative of mine was practically handed a Jaguar E-type back then and that surely doesn't happen anymore.

    I can remember that in the 70s and 80s these were considered just a bit too extrovert (to put it mildly). I agree that the style has aged well, but must say I would still prefer a standard 105 series GT.

    This gets me thinking with alot of comments stating how bad it feels that you didnt take the opportunity 10 years ago to buy a car like this, what car could you buy now that at least has a good chance of at least doubling. My thoughts are that you dont buy a classic car for the potential of earning some money, but it would solidify the argument to buy one in the first place, if say you were in argument with your family/ or other half. Any suggestions??

    If I thought I had the answer to that question, I wouldn't tell anyone;)

    To this day, the white Giulia SS I spotted on an autoroute as I drove through France, is one of the best things I've ever seen on the road. I had to frantically shout at my friends to take a photo of it before it went out of sight, but sadly I'm not sure a shot ever materialised...
