This is a hard one to let go and it needs to go to the right person.  100% of the service work has been done by two of the best old school Porsche shops in the Chicago Suburbs.  My car was built when Henry Reisner had his full attention to Intermeccanica.  All Replica's are awesome but this is a car you can roll into a PCA event or other classic car club and GETS your due's.  Thanks for looking:-)

Marty I see that you are under the assumption that you will be allowed to sell this car.  I feel I must inform you that it has been declared an SOC Heritage Car and thus cannot be sold without our approval.  You can thank us later. 

In all seriousness I feel like you'd regret it shortly after the sale, but I understand the draw of the Alfa and the reality of limited space.  You'll make the right decision for you and Sandy.

Of course we all will have to approve the purchaser. 

Marty---this news was quite a surprise for me.  I know you have thought through the best thing for yourself but I have a weird feeling of loss. Maybe loss of seeing you and Sandy at SOC events but with so many friends there I hope to see you joining us with whatever you are driving.  

I have had my Speedster for 13 years now and it has never crossed my mind to consider selling it.  So many memories wrapped up in it with everything done over those years getting it to where all I do is put gas in it and drive it.  I'd still repeat the West Coast event if someone would caravan with me  (Anyone?)  

Wishing all the best for you and Sandy and hope our paths cross again soon.

Whoa.  But, I wondered what was going on when you started that Alfa restoration, and I figured something had to give.  It's difficult for any man to have two mistresses, and the newer one usually wins out.

You have had good years in that car and you will miss it.  I'm older than you, and I've been through a lot of sports cars, both good and bad, and I have no desire to restore another car. 

I may change my mind someday, but I'm pretty sure my IM is my last sports car. 

Your presence in SOC will be missed.

Bob, my goal as well was to get out of chasing the continual rust issues that comes along with a 30-50 year old car or more.  The design of early cars is what I like so I seem to be stuck in the 50's as far as Euro Cars that I like and the others just pale.  Now I can be distracted for a moment but when I think of restoring an old car I just can't seem to pull the trigger because... well I still would need to upgrade so much to make it a driveable car that I would be comfortable with. 

My IM does it for me , newer powerplant, NO RUST, 911 full front suspension and Rack full subie. I could go on but I understand Marty has trunk envy, maybe Bob and I should send him picts of our front trunks.   

Let's not get too teary-eyed folks.  I doubt that he's leaving the fold, just being 356-less like I've been the last 2 1/2 years and like @WOLFGANG has been for, well, ever .  The Alfa, being Italian, will still require fashionable gloves and other accoutrements.

Don't be so sure, Lane.  Once Marty gets in with the Alfa crowd, why would he hang with a bunch of wannabes?  He'll be the owner of a real car, one with history, with heritage, with wine and cheese (and gloves and shoes)...

Marty:  Do the road trip thing and keep it in Naples.  My biker friend, Robb, has a place in Naples and his brother is like 3 streets away.  Robb has a Volvo P-1800 wagon and Craig has a Fiat Spyder.  Both keep them down there year round.  When they're not there the cars are in one of those bubbles that dehumidifies the space.  Robb's going on 12 years now with his Volvo with no noticeable rust (according to him...  I have not seen the car).  Besides, Your IM has A/C so it is PERFECT for down there and you need a car anyway, right?  Why not go in style?

Food for thought.
