Off thread reply
EauRouge, no dealer complained. But thank you. I'm a bit stickler for the truth. That's incorrect.
I felt a bit bad that I'd misappropriated that hallowed name having only been there once, and it's a place many on Alfaowner could claim to have greater links to. I have to book leave around colleagues and invariably I book that period off as leave and one year I may actually go there again. I was cheering on Jacques Villeneuve, but I think it was Mika chasing down Michael Schumacher that year, and he won it. It's sad to think where he is now and I am not a fan. That Sunday a colleague from the German office stood perhaps too closely to me with her red Alfa baseball cap on, and a Lamborghini Diablo circuit car brushed past on a track in the woods. And the winner of that race is now laid up in hospital.
I had TG on Dave on during a break at work, it was the one where James May was Driving that black California that Chris Evans owns and a colleague that came in gave it the 'How the other half live, and how such a car would be useless for getting bits of wood home from the DIY shops'. We then went onto this chap that won £108M on the Euromillions and what we'd do if it was us. He said he'd live on the coast in Italy. So that was two of us that hadn't chatted before having a 'love in' about Italy. I mooted a future possible road trip down through Italy.
That circuit is special to many, so it would not have been on for me to take it. I'll go post in the 2014 thread.
Back on thread. I was thinking £5K-£6K.
I was just looking at Betas on car and classics classifieds. The GTV seems like a latter day Beta Coupe to me, perhaps it's the distinct two rear seats? There's an Y reg HPE without an MoT for £3K and a decent looking white Ziebarted 1979 1.6 for £2600 ish. I'm mentioning that as a possible yardstick to see what this GTV may be worth in the future.
With Hobson234's Alfaholics Nuvola V6 stunner going for £6K I could understand it if this low mileage TS reached a similar level.
I think those saying the UK economy is rising on another property price bubble could have a point so if things do go pop again then the values of supposedly sought after cars and pseudo classics could take a knock. That GTV looks more fun than 1.5% in an ISA.
