    I wasn't quite sure where to post this and I apologize if it's too far OT for this thread.

    But having experience driving big trucks I found this demo VERY impressive! Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

    The Alfa-pretty cars
    EXCEPT for those ugly wheels??
    Factory wheels?? Italians usually have great taste in designing metal objects-planes cars motorcycles motor scooters bikes bike parts
    Those wheels- UGLY!

    The desert panzer painted Porche-actually looks pretty good-rally car I guess

    Not trying to be like, "oh we've already seen that," but I think we discussed that car a couple of months back, must have been when they announced it was going to auction or something. I specifically remember it because of the 6 pipes out the sides, but it's a v8... Cool old thing. Gotta wonder what kind of person would buy that, besides obviously very rich.

    I always liked some of the Studebakers. Their early '50s pickups were always popular rod & resto material but I like the '37s even better.

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, I love them. The Giulietta is way more powerful than a Mazda 3 and offers the owner something Jap cars don't, character and heritage! That's why Alfa owners are so passionate.

    Not an issue here. Every new Alfa sold here gets free 24 hours a day 7 days a week roadside assistance for 3 years and since Alfa only left Aust. during 1996-97 there's plenty specialist mechanic's and spare part shops.
    For my older 33 and sprint I can still buy many mechanical parts over the counter, anything else on the net or auto dismantlers.

    You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
    You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
    You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
    You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down.
    You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.

    Wow that Osca MT4 is just cool ! Like a baby cobra

    OK here's another rude Stude I always wanted but never quite got. A '53 Starliner.

    With a little early '50s Dodge Red Ram or DeSoto small block hemi

    They were the high RPM (for a push-rod engine) and aerodynamic (when chopped) combo for the Bonneville salt flats.
