The 1960 Giulietta that I saw in Amsterdam last week was more beautiful in real life than in the photos. This Alfa Romeo was restored to perfection. It was love at first sight. Obviously, it drove like a 1960s car with a very small engine (1300 cc), drum brakes, and older suspension design, but it ran perfectly.
The 1973 Montreal had been repainted with poor quality which was a disappointment. I was also disappointed of the ordinary sound of its V8 engine (I was hoping for much more).
With the high Euro compared to the Canadian dollar (1.5 CDN to buy 1 Euro), the price for both cars was at the high end of the range, then adding the shipping to Canada, import duty, and taxes, the price now becomes above the range maximum, so I decided not to buy. But I will continue my Alfa Romeo search.
Looking forward to your "first drive" comments of your new Giulia Nuova Super 1300!!!
