Really wanted a 240/260/280 in high school (1980s) but after a couple dishonest sellers bought an Opel GT. I do regret selling my 72 Alfa GTV running driving rustbucket 20 years ago for $450 though

Yep. When I asked the guy I bought it from if he’d ever smelled gas, he mentioned he never put much fuel in it for fear of it going bad. I’ll never understand garage queen folk... but I appreciate him keeping this one pristine for me, and selling it to me before the warranty ran out! Read more
