Alfetta prices
« on: November 27, 2020, 02:54:53 PM »
Hi all,  I've been keeping an eye on the escalating asking prices (and I'm assuming being sold for,  or close to it) of the various models for this past year.
I hope they're bought and enjoyed fully,  gracing the roads of our state, driven with all the theatrics a well sorted Fetta unleashes.
      It reminds me of a chat with an owner of a beautifully restored GTV (1978 I think) at a display day around 10 years ago.  I commended him on a magnificent looking car and suggested it would be fantastic fun to enjoy out and about.
The anxiety on his face was palpable as he mentioned that it was only the second time that year it had turned a wheel ( it was mid November) and that it had consumed too much money and effort to ever enjoy as before.
 It would be interesting to hear other views.
  What's your 'tipping point'?

I guess with the prices of 105s heading toward $100k it makes sense that price increases would eventually filter through to Alfettas.  A well sorted 116 is just as much fun to drive. Not quite as gorgeous to look at, but way more affordable. I've had a stack of Alfettas and Giuliettas over the years and currently have a 1984 Giulietta for weekend fun. It's mechanically excellent and visually average. But I can drive the shit out of it on country roads and not give a rats about stone chips. The old joolie never ceases to put a smile on my face.

I'm like Hammer - paid a pittance for my '81 GTV (but have spent a fair bit on the innards) so mechanically its pretty good, but pretty average to look at from closer than 20 feet. Its kinda like David Duchovny's 911 in Californication...

But I drive the bejeezus out of it every week - it even served as my daily driver for over a year. One day I'll get round to the body. But my main motivation is enjoying being behind the wheel, so keeping it going is the priority.

I think I've done in the order of 20,000km since i bought it in 2015.

*Actually, just checked and I've done closer to 30,000km in it. No point having it sit idle ....

I personally believe that 105 prices are going to peak and alfetta are on the up ,WHY?
When i did demographic modelling on music for the ABC
its not too different in cars
what is your target audience and then what year was it when they were 14 to 21
the last 105 was made  1974 therefore a 14 year old would be 60 years today of age retiring not spending money on cars
the perfect age group for these is the affluent empty nester ,kids gone period 45 to 55  so thats a 1989 model to 1979 model car
perfect for alfetta gtvs hence the following now
and lets face  it 105's are cute but technically not a patch on the GTV alfetta range

The last line might furrow a few brows and raise eyebrows or even get a WTF.
Very brave Carlo
