    Mmmmmm. I don't think so. But, it's attractive and in the world of ugly cars that are for sale today, that's a huge plus.

    There are 2 in Montreal.

    I've seen both. Meh! It's pretty I'll give you that. It's out of the ordinary when spotted among the common ranks.

    Over 200K for an Alfa??? ....me thinks NOT!!

    I have one and it is worth the money, most cost around $300k. It isn't fast but it is a ball to drive and the sound of the exhaust is fantastic.

    I will sell my Ferraris within the next 3-5 years but the Alfa I don't plan to sell.

    I am partial to E-Types :D

    The Alfa, however, is very nice - love one if I could afford it!

    No Miura? I know beauty is in the eye of the beholder but really now lol....

    PS-I 100% agree that the 246GT should be first on the list...

    EDIT:porsche 904 not too shabby either....

    I agree that those are beautiful automobiles as well. However, how about adding the original 8C to the mix? Even though I like the new 8C very much (for a modern car), it is still vastly outclassed in elegance and design (for the time) by the originals with their fantastic Vittorio Jano designed engines.

    Wow, the 2900MM is one of my absolute favorites. I think we have an exceedingly strong case in favor of the original 8C's, no?

    Were those taken in Vail before the start?? Looks like an amazing race. What is the best day to view the cars before they get dirty?

    The photos were taken at the 8c rally in Sante Fe.

    This year the 12th is the day before Colorado Grand driving starts. Virtually all of the cars will be in the parking garage next Monday.

    Thank you. It looked like the Colorado Grand from a few years ago, my mistake.

    Might have to make the trip as it looks like its going to be a good year.
