I purchased a 1991 164L new and still have it. Silver with black leather, automatic. We live in the great Pacific Northwest above Seattle and have thougholy enjoyed driving this Alfa, both on the interstates and the twisty back roads. We think these are great cars and remarkably comfortable and reliable and have found their few but fixable weaknesses. They are still better than lots of cars selling new today. Alfas just have that certain feel about them on the road that other cars lack.
