According to the FAQ, the first episode likely aired on 4/29/86.  Episode #2 might be 12/1/86 or 12/11/86.

I noticed the backdrop for the Cavalier in Card Game was the same prop as the black & shimmering gold one for jukebox prizes at the time.

As a car enthusiast, I absolutely drooled over that Alfa Romeo GTV6 in the showcase.  It's awesome to know that at least one Alfa Romeo was offered on the show before they stopped featuring foreign cars in 1992.   It was totally awesome to see it won, too!

The 2nd episode you're referring to SuperSweeper is from December 11, 1986 and it was among the episodes that was rerun by GSN, maybe Carlos has that full episode from a GSN airing in his collection.

I've seen a handful of Alfa Romeos offered on other '80s episodes.  This is the first time that I've seen that particular model, though.

March 8, 1991 could possibly be the last time the show offered an Alfa Romeo. It was offered in one of the showcases but not won.

They offered another Alfa Romeo in June 2016 in Golden Road.  It was a $78,045 4C Spider.
