Standing on the edge of a dry lakebed at 4:30 a.m., stars twinkling overhead, I could hear the sound of a distant engine but couldn’t quite make out from where. Scanning the black abyss that is nighttime El Mirage, a lone distant light was actually moving closer and closer. Out of the darkness rumbled a scene straight…
The Alfa Romeo 4C is an important car for both Fiat/Chrysler and us, the enthusiast consumers. It offers the purest driving experience available from a road car, Italian styling, properly advanced carbon construction, and a great soundtrack. But what's it like to drive on American roads? Mind bending.
You read that right. On the Atlantic cruise from Modena, Italy to the U.S., the 4C tacked on 342 pounds, and it wasn't from the all-you-can-eat steak and shrimp buffet.
While they say the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence, today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe Alfa Milano Verde could live in your own back yard. That is of course, if the seller isn't asking for too much of your green.
Summer’s coming up, and what better way to spend it than by spending some dough on a sweet droptop? That summer fun could start with today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe Alfa Spider. That is of course if you don’t find its price to be a top-downer.

The Alfa Romeo 75 (Milano in the US) was so named in celebration of the company's 75th anniversary. It was also, coincidentally the last model released before Alfa was absorbed by Fiat. Today's Nice Price or Crack Pipe Milano is only 26, but is its price still worth celebrating?

We've found one automotive answer to this problem that although strange should be expected—a Miata.
When the Alfa Romeo brand returns to the U.S. somewhere around 2013, it'll be a version of the Giulietta hatch leading the way. Naturally, before they get here, they'll have to stand up to Michigan highways.
Veloce. In Italian it means fast. You might think the Italians at Alfa Romeo have forgotten that word, so slow they have been in returning to the U.S. market. However, today's Nice Price or Crack Pipe 2000 GTV proves you can still get an Alfa here pretty damn veloce.
As Clarkson and others have said, you're not a true auto enthusiast until you've owned (or more rightly been owned-by) an Alfa Romeo. Well, today's Nice Price or Crack Pipe Alfetta might just be a cheap way to own up to that enthusiast creed.
Alfa Romeo's Milano is like the homely guy/girl who, contrastingly, really knows how to rock your planet. This Nice Price or Crack Pipe Verde represents the hottest U.S. iteration of the fugly sedan, but is its price unattractive as well?
Before CDs and iPods, music was sold on records and tapes, and a common vinyl format was the 33 RPM LP. Today's Nice Price or Crack Pipe Alfa Romeo 33 is uncommon, but it might make some beautiful music.
Fiat isn't expected to bring the Alfa Giulietta to these shores for a few years, but a truckload were spotted heading north on I-75 toward Chrysler HQ. Why all black? To match Sergio's sweaters. (H/T to Andrew!)
