A British Bulldog and one of my all time faves, the Rover P5 Coupe.

Also known as "The working man`s Rolls Royce" and the "Solihull Barge."

The Chrysler 300c is rumoured to have used this as a major design influence.

She said, "You can`t take ANYTHING seriously, can you?" I just laughed.

Bonus points to Lefty for the TI Super.

BTW, I never really cared for the Montreal all that much.

A few more tasty bits from my favorite serpent-based brand.

The Type 33 Stradale is my all-time favorite car.

I don't even like cars much, but after looking up Type 33 Standale, I gotta compliment your taste Lefty, that's hot.



1967 - whadda year?

Yep. Alfa only made 18 of them and they were the most expensive car you could buy in the U.S. in 1967. At the time, they cost about $20,000. Average new car price in the U.S. was around $2,800.

It has a SPICA fuel injected 2.0L V8 with 230 bhp at 8,800 rpm, a six-speed 'box and 13-inch wheels. As required by an Italian supercar, it has weird doors, too.

The Alfa Montreal I posted earlier has a 2.6L version of the same V8 with 200 bhp.
