Although prices vary, the adage is probably true of buying a more expensive, low mileage version in good nick is better than a cheaper, higher mileage.none for a while and then a whole load at once..
I would have thought its a car to keep when the petrol prices make it possible to drive it without one eye on the fuel gauge...!
the red one does look a peach, the Veloces one is too expensive ,all the others look decent, the blue is far to sensible a colour fo the 3.2! but it IS nice to see them going up in value for a good one.:thumbup:
I wish low mileage guaranteed trouble free...Although prices vary, the adage is probably true of buying a more expensive, low mileage version in good nick is better than a cheaper, higher mileage.
Does anyone think these original Alfa Bussos will become 'classics' of the future?
I've often thought along the same lines and would love to see something like this happen.and all this green car production stuff is rubbish anyway. the building of one new car creates more pollution than your current one will in its lifetime, so it's undeniable. if the government of any county was truly committed to tackling this issue head on then the solution is simple.
halt new car production for 10 years and stop crushing old ones for no good reason,employ the car industry to research build, and refine the infrastructure to support the new fuel and then start making new hydrogen powered cars, they will still make money from maintaining the cars currently on the road as well.
our generation has developed a throw away attitude towards car ownership due to the PCP way of owning cars. my dad and grandad would have found this shocking, in those days you ran a car until it was dead , not until something ''newer, shinier and more desirable came along.
we really don't ''need'' almost all of the new cars being built and as a society maybe we should take a step back and ask ourselves if we should be buying a new car every 4 years..?
Problem is the busso GT looks exactly the same as all the others, so on looks alone you have no idea if its holding a Busso or an oil burner.Though I'm slightly biased I disagree because the Bertone designed shaped of the GT is quite special and along with the GTA the last great busso engine.
Well, that could be said of a lot of classic cars (e.g. the looks don't tell you what engine you have). As far as overall looks/performance/drivability I think it could be. I have to say 'dog' never comes to mind when I look at the GT though. Who knows? Only time will tell!Problem is the busso GT looks exactly the same as all the others, so on looks alone you have no idea if its holding a Busso or an oil burner.
Also, the looks aren't loved by many. I was always unsure of the looks of my old GT, sometimes I'd look at my old GT and think she's a real looker, then I'd look again from another angle and think what a dog!
