Al Dented-e: 1987 Alfa Romeo Milano


The Milano was release in the US to give buyers the option of procuring something less pretentious than an E30, having more soul than a Mercedes 190E, yet slightly less eccentric than a Peugeot 505 Turbo, all while spending less. Find this 1987 Alfa Romeo Milano for sale in Leesburg, VA for a mere $900 via craigslist.


The seller notes that this car needs guibos. No, not your friends at the shore, these rubber doughnuts spin at engine speed in the case of the Milano given the transaxle is mounted aft. Therefore, it's of paramount importance that these are round and intact lest the two-piece prop shaft turn into numchucks. There are limited pictures and no mention of interior condition or rust, however, for $900, you can't go wrong. Plus, you can bring a driveshaft as carry on luggage, right?

  1. Probably the least desirable RWD Alfa, but hell, it is still a RWD Alfa! Bring $850, a trailer, and boundless optimism.

    1. It's the last of the real Alfa Romeos vs. the platform-shared 164 or later FIAT-Alfas.
