Would love me an old quattro. Almost bought one last year but it was a bit toasty for my taste.

Dad lusted after a Fiat Spyder or the Alfa equivalent. But the closest we ever got was Fiat 126...

Flat paint, particularly black, is one of those things that when done well on the right car looks amazing IMO. Here's a Zender widebody 500SEC plasti-dipped. It's gaudy but I love it. And Flat Six we can't see the pic you attached... at least I can't

I can't either. If I cut and paste the link into a new tab I get a message from Renlist telling me I am not a member. Cruiserhead, do you happen to be a member there?
