on a journey to Italy
You think series I / II Alfasuds are history? They still exist! You
only have to know where to search...
On the other hand, Alexander could not find many Alfasuds on Sicily. Sad but true, but most of the cars he found, stood on a scrap yard.
On his way home he stopped in Northern Italy at the Garda lake. There
he found two Alfasud Sprints in good condition. It was a silver Alfasud
Sprint 1.5 Veloce trofeo, which was available at a nearby Alfa-dealer for
2000 EUR. The second Sprint looked brand new. It was a silver 1.3
Veloce which was made at the end of the seventies (maybe 1977 or 1978)
he found on a scrap yard. He tried to buy the car. Unfortunately, the car had to be destroyed. As in many
other countries, the Italian government subsidizes new cars by giving a
certain amount of money for the old car the client owns. All this old cars
then have to be destroyed.
