Help Sick Alfa

Hello to all you dedicated alfa lovers out there.
I am an alfa owner and have been for 8 years. I have a 145 junior in french blue 1998 model, it has done 113 000 and we have been everywhere together.
I have spent so much over the years, as im sure most of you have keeping it on the road and in great condition, however the last few mot's (it always fails) and services have been fairly expensive.
I have had to have the chassis welded considerably and I am now at my second cam change. I need new sparks, it hates starting, its noisier than ever. The oil consumption is heavy but no more than normal and its popping and banging for the first 15 minutes of the drive.
In a nutshell I have reached a dilema. I dont think I want to get rid of my alfa I would love to restore it to its former glory. Alfa want 200 for the diagnostic and im considering a new engine etc.. on the other hand the car is only worth a mere 500 in its current condition I dont really want to get another car. I wonder if any of you have any ideas how much I am looking at spending to restore it, or if you have any ideas or advice. Kind regards to you all and happy motoring.
