Alfa Romeo Alfa 90
Should have been an appealing one this: styling by Bertone; an Alfa Six engine and Alfetta running gear. In truth, it never really gelled, and managed to sell even more slowly than the two cars whose parts it combined in order to replace. There are some other redeeming features to this appealing ’bitza’, such as the dash-mounted briefcase (try finding one now!) and a tacho that looked as if lifted straight from an ’80s Japanese stack system. Not surprisingly, rust is the main issue with electrics a close second. Buy if you’re brave – or admire from a safe distance.
