As you probably know, Alfa Romeo has recently returned to the United States market, more than 20 years after leaving in the first place. There's a lot of fanfare around the latest models -- but if you're still interested in an "old" Alfa, I've found a nice one for you.

This is a 1991 Alfa Romeo 164L, and it's the last Alfa that was sold in the United States before the brand left. Well, it isn't the very last one, but the 164 was the last Alfa Romeo model sold in the United States. It was sold through 1995, and it was offered in "sport" or "luxury" form, aptly named "164S" and "164L." Although the 164S is more desirable with enthusiasts, it's harder to find; the 164L is more common, and that's what's for sale here.

But even though this isn't the sporty version, it's still a pretty special car. That's because this Alfa is shockingly well preserved, with just 97,000 miles on the odometer and a well-kept interior and exterior. Finished in black with a beige leather interior, this 164 really looks similar to the way it did when it first came out, nearly 30 years ago.

Offered for sale by Pennant Motors in Fairview, Pennsylvania, in the extreme northwestern corner of the state, this 164 seems to have spent its life in New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania, where it was apparently babied. It's currently listed for $7,995, which isn't cheap for an old Alfa -- but if you want a weird 1990s car, it's hard to go wrong with Alfa Romeo.
