This Alfa Romeo 164 S is available on eBay and is a very clean largely stock example. At TME, we have always like these cars, and this one is unusually well-preserved. As is the case with practical cars that were once expensive but are now affordable (like old M5′s, M3′s, 500E’s etc.), most examples have an unfortunate combination of intergalactic mileage, deterioration with age, and deferred maintenance. This one has low mileage, no tasteless modifications, and has obviously been loved, which makes it quite a unique find.

TME has made it back over 800 miles to the Bay Area safely with almost no problems from the car. The car never ran hot and always started (sometimes reluctantly), though we did receive a somewhat bogus ticket for “careless driving” in Oregon for overtaking a semi over a dotted line with no oncoming cars in sight. Here are a bunch of pictures, mostly from Oregon.

TME is bringing this hotrodded Jaguar E-Type Roadster that we featured previously from Washington state to its new owner in the San Francisco Bay Area, and the car is thus joining the TME nuclear family fleet. We have taken a coastal route back along 101 in Oregon and are presently in Crescent City, CA. The car has performed well and has proven to be quick, well behaved (so far!), and thirsty.
More photos to follow!
