Getting rarer!

Supply certainly seems to be drying up on 145s. None on ebay, 1 on gumtree for £1500 and one piece of crap green thing in the Auto Trader.

The last one I saw on sale with Alfabook went within a couple of days for a grand. Values certainly seem to be climbing and it is probably worth holding on to them as a future classic.

Especially none-modded ones!

Very true, I have been trying to buy a decent one for 3 years now and no luck. I have an automatic search running on ebay for all 145's within 250 miles of me and in the last 2 years I have had only 1 result and the car was the same spec with the same faults as the one I have on my drive.

In the last 18 months I have not seen any on the road. I have seen a ferrari F50 and a Mclaren P1 but not a single Alfa 145, says it all for rarity.

I very nearly bought a mint one from a member on, jjgrosovner or something. Finally got to the stage of closing the deal and when I said I would buy it, when are you available for my to come down and drive away he seemed to disapear from the face of the earth and to this day hasn't returned (3 years later).

Not seen a 145 on the road for ages, but there is a 146Ti which lives pretty local to me.

I bet a lot of them fell victim to rusty floor pans like other Alfas of the same era.

Just a few dozen 1.8s. It's the only thing that keeps me still fixing mine, rather than giving up and breaking it.

I feel like I have to keep it alive.
