well done Dave,
you hang in there mate, if you have to part with it at all that is!
the trouble with subjective valuations, and especially the old chestnut about its only worth what someone will pay, always come down to the fact that yes, truly, whilst there are cars genuinely worth a lot more than others, if they are up against folk with the same car but willing to give them away, the true value will never be realised.
the way this thread reads already, is evidence that our cars are a long long way off being what and where they should be, and my real point is that it is largely down to US, the owners.
we all like a bargain, me especially, and sometimes when needs must, things have to sell quickly, but these should be the rare opportunities, the fluke chances, not the NORM or a guide to their general value.
if by use of a magic wand, i could remove the alfa romeo category from ebay, i would, and we would all benefit overnight, in one way anyway!
but just to re-inforce another point, and to use ebay as others do,
look in classic cars for escort rs, you'll find 41, mixed bags of shizzle admittedly, but then thats the ford owners interpretation of a classic!
now try alfasud, there is 1 (now in my shark watch list! ha ha!!)
DK, if all of us, took all our pride and joys to a Ford meeting, we'd be out-numbered by baked potatoe vans,
we all have a part to play in this, and all it takes is a bit more pride and effort in my opinion.
