Weekend Quickies, September 25, 2010

1988 Alfa Romeo Verde - As I've written in the past, it doesn't take much to get me to write about an Alfa Romeo Milano (75).

This is a Milano Verde. It came with the amazing 3.0 liter engine, all the options Alfa had to offer, Recaro seats, an orange backlit dash and more.

This is a well maintained car, in very good condition. The asking price, $5000.00, seems very reasonable.

Located in Sacramento, CA, click here to see the Craigslist ad.

1974 Renault R12 - Now this is cool. When was the last time you saw one of these?

The R12 was extremely popular in every part of the world except for North America. It never sold well here.

The seller calls this car a "probable 1 owner has been stored forever". He claims the body "is straight and no rust issues".

Parts are not easy to find in the US (but not impossible, either), but very easy to acquire from Europe.

This would be a great restoration project for someone looking for an unusual car to bring to shows, drive on the weekends, etc.

Located in Duluth, MN, with an asking price of just $350.00, you can see the Craigslist listing here.

The Renault ad is *awesome*. The end of it says, "Will trade for a pistol or shotgun or??" To think, for a 12 gauge, you'd get a 12L!

How amazing to find this post...I purchased this actual car from an old man in Winsconsin two years ago. I recognized it by the hanging license plate bracket. I am in the process of restoring it, I have the whole story with pictures on a forum. If anyone is interested contact me at tzucuny@yahoo.com. Here is a link to the forum. http://forum.4tuning.ro/109-masina-mea-dacia/131883-renault-r12-america-transformat-dacia-1300-a.html
