He's still a sell out *****, but Tim Allen just gained a small amount of respect from me for having a RS200.

In real estate, location is everything. Surely there's no better location than a 15th-century castle among vineyards outside of Modena, Italy, but what lies inside Castello di Panzano Castelfranco Emilia that transcends even this scenic location. Collezione Righini, as it's called, is one of the finest private automotive collections in the world, housing several landmark Alfas including Tazio Nuvolari's 8C 2300, many Lancias (including a Stratos), important Formula 1 cars, and the very first car that Enzo Ferrari built after departing Alfa Romeo, the only Auto Avio Costruzioni (AAC) Type 815, which was raced in the Mille Miglia by famous driver Alberto Ascari.

Click the following link to see our write-up and photography of the rare opportunity we had to visit the collection: http://www.petrolicious.com/righini-c....

180 rare cars were found inside a barn in Portugal with the doors welded shut. They have been locked up for many years and someone should restore them to their former glory.

If I were going to collect cars, a Bluebird rally car, a Quattro, an RS200 and a Delta HF Integrale would be high on the list.

And whichever JGTC chassis I could get my hands on, complete with battle scars.

Bruce Turk turned a childhood love for the Saab Sonett into a 25-year obsession and a collection of Saab cars, parts and memorabilia you must see to believe.
