Intro and question

hi. i'm writing hoping to get some advice. I bought my son a 1982 spider a couple years ago.As my wife pointed out at the time, I guess I was reliving my young adulthood through him (no law against that I realize). In any even, he moved to Baltimore to go to graduate school (we live in Chicago) and became uninterested in maintaining a car he saw as fairly demanding, when he could use his sister's elantra (he is much more practical than me).

we put the car in storage and I am planning to go out to baltimore in two weeks to try to sell it. while it has been in storage, it is in good shape, well maintened and has low mileage (~35,000). I havent sold a car since my 20's, and my question is do you have advice on how I (i.e. you if you were in my shoes) can most effectively/rapidly sell it over a couple of days. Should I contact fiat dealers in the area? should I contact mechanics who repair Alfas (my brother in law has been starting it up, and I dont think it needs any work)? should I advertise on Ebay/Craigs list? I'd appreciate any advice.

Welcome waving As this is a European site it may be worth your while to ask about selling your Spider on the Alfabb (North American site) Good luck with it.
