Yet another car in decent condition to be broken up by a parts dealer, I wonder.
You wouldn't believe how many 10s of £1000s these guys make each year peddling used parts from good cars!!
No one in their right mind breaks good alfas, as they're worth more as a car in that case.
To make enough money from breaking, you'd really need to be buying it for under the 400 mark, except for gta's which have a lot more sought after parts.
The bad ones get broken, the ones that aren't worth saving, from both a time and economical point of view. These are the ones that you can put your hand through the body parts, where the engine has been run low on oil, or the belt has snapped.
Now while its possible to save the latter two examples, its neither worth the time and effort.
I bought a very cheap GTV, of gtvgav on here, and by the time I'm finished fixing the problems, ill be lucky to break even on it, yet had I broken it Id have doubled-tripled my money.
You also have to consider that if potentially salvable alfas were all fixed, where would we get parts for our own alfas to keep them on the road?
