Low Miles 1988 Alfa Romeo Quadrifoglio in Black

I haven’t posted an Alfa in a while and this one jumped off the .rss reader this morning:

1988 Alfa Romeo Quadrifoglio For Sale on Craigslist (Oregon) 38k miles, $11k:

1988 Alfa Romeo Quadrifoglio For Sale Black1988 Alfa Romeo Quadrifoglio For Sale with Hardtop

quote from Craigslist listing:

1988 Alfa Romeo Quadrifoglio Convertable, this is the top of the line model loaded…38k Org. miles, 5sp, 2L dual cam motor, leather, original hardtop w/glass windows. Comes w/car cover, cockpit cover, and manuals. Also gets good gas mil. I have the title. Must sell, separation sale… $12,000 obo

Anytime I start considering a Miata on perfect spring days, I find myself battling internally if an Alfa Spider would be a better buy. It’s classier, it has a pedigree, it’s got styling provided by Pininfarina, and it should have soul being Italian. $11k sounds a bit rich, but there can’t be many 88’s in this condition, with the hardtop, with such low miles left anywhere. And I have to say the Black is pretty fetching! What would you pay? Leave a comment!

Well the Alfa is certainly tempting, and all the points you list in its favor versus the Miata are certainly true. However I had a Miata once and it had one overarching quality that does it for me – it actually ran when I want to go for a drive. No fuss, no muss, no drama.

When I bought this car in 87 it did not come in black. I didn’t think it did until much later. It was only gray with red interior
