    Auction Results and Sales Data for Fiat Spider

    I wasn't actually looking to purchase a Fiat when I came across my Spider towards the end of summer in In fact, I had been searching the daily classifieds for a budget-priced Alfa Romeo Spider -- two terms that are never used together by anyone who's actually owned an Alfa before. Fortunately, I hadn't, though I'd come close on several occasions, and the 'Staff and Serpent'-badged Spider was a car that had been on my radar before I'd even gotten my driver's license.

    My daily scouring of local classifieds was quickly proving fruitless, with all the good cars and even the not-so-good cars proving to be just out of my spending range. That's when the Craigslist advertisement came across my computer screen, offering a very nice looking Fiat Spider at price even my woefully impoverished self could afford.

This is the pre-purchase stage where money still sits safely in the bank but is ready to be called on at a moment's notice.

    Many experts agree that the euphoria experienced in this stage is second only to that of being in the lustful early days of a new romance. The bookshelf is rummaged through for books and copies of old car magazines with past reviews and buyers guides. Model-specific Web forums are like treasure troves ready for discovery. After a week of this, I was an obsessive, raving madman -- speaking of nothing but the virtues of the Fiat Spider to anyone who dared to listen.

    I drove back to James' apartment the following weekend with a friend, cash in hand, to see the car in better light and try to get it started. Just as I arrived, James was coming around the corner in the Fiat.

    There was a quick test drive around the block in there somewhere and I do recall my friend pointing out a few cosmetic flaws and asking silly, irrelevant questions like "do the lights work? The car was now mine. Deal done, I drove to the nearest gas station to fuel up for the mile trip home, buddy following in the car we had arrived in. As the Fiat's tank filled with 10 gallons of premium, a middle-aged man filling up his Jetta asked "Hey, is that an Alfa? Stay tuned to motortrendclassic.
