My wife had a 1974 Alfa GTV 2000 when she was in college and has always regretted selling it.



That's a good looking car right there. I think I'd like to see if I could find one for her birthday or Christmas one of these years.

I know this may not be everyone's cup of tea, but it is the first "beautiful" car I got to ride in, when I was ten. My mom just gave me a framed picture of me sitting in the one I fell for.

Not "beautiful" at all...

... but damned impressive. I want one. I really do. Nissan brought one to the auto show here in January, and it looks so much better in person.

I've only seen them in three colours here...black, grey and silver. I'm not fussy, any of those colours are fine with me.
