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.

Click on "dreamin since 72" on his site and read about his Dino.

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.

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
