Italian for Steal: 1988 Alfa Romeo Spider Quadrifoglio

This next tip comes from Erik202 who writes: Came across this cruising alfabb for sale listings. Seems like a great deal assuming the underside is even somewhat rust free. I had an 84 spider up until recently when I swapped it out for an e30 convertible (wanted the option of a rear seat for young kids) and absolutely LOVED it. This generation uses Bosch efi, are generally pretty simple mechanically and have awesome parts availability. I can't say enough about how much fun for the money these things are.  Find this 1988 Alfa Spider Quadrifoglio offered for $4000 in Chicago, IL via

From the seller:

I never drive my 1988 Alfa Spider Quadrifoglio so I'm offering it for sale. I purchased it from a poster here in 2012. 

After an extensive mechanic overhaul that included new sport suspension and engine seals and gaskets and much more. It's time for someone else who can appreciate this car to be able to enjoy it. Car is located in Chicago. 

See a better way to drive a 2 seat "sports" car?
