    That's an Elan. The Toyota 2000GT isn't.

    I thought the Elan has lights that turn. Was it the Citroen?

    That Testarossa is pure joy. Wow. What a car.

    I saw a very similar TR in the shop of Stuart Singer a few years ago.

    10 - 4.

    Thought it was an early '60s? Think I saw a show about them once, little thing did 110 - 120 mph? Also got around 30 mpg. Don't know if that was at the same time though.

    Thanks.

    If I could see it on the silver screen

    We'll talk about a low-down bad refrigerator,
    You were just too cool for school
    Sock hop, soda pop, basketball and auto shop,
    The only thing that got you off was breakin' all the rules
    James Dean, James Dean
    So hungry and so lean
    James Dean, you said it all so clean
    And I know my life would look all right
    If I could see it on the silver screen

    Little James Dean, up on the screen
    Wonderin' who he might be
    Along came a Spyder and picked up a rider
    And took him down the road to eternity

    James Dean, James Dean, you bought it sight unseen

    You were too fast to live, too young to die, bye-bye
    You were to fast to live, too young to die, bye-bye
    Bye-bye, Bye-bye, Bye-bye, Bye, bye
