    Most of us have a two car garage. If you were to limits its occupancy to 2 italians, one classic, and one modern, what would be your picks?

    My temaplate:

    Ferrari 250 Lusso (silver)
    Ferrari 575 Maranello - titanium (Enzo too flashy)

    Lambo Miura SV (lime green/black)
    Lambo Murcielago (lime green/black)

    Maserati 3500 Spider Vignale (silver black)
    Maserati Quattroporte (silver/black)

    Alfa Romeo Tipo 33 Stradale
    Alfa 156 GTA Sportwagon

    Fiat 8V
    ?

    And last, but not least, I would also invite one more classic, and one more modern Italian:

    Sofia Loren
    Isabella Rossellini

    For reference: My current garage has:
    1974 Alfa Spider
    1963 Ferrari 250 GTE

    Given its just me needing a car:

    Challenge Stradale
    246 GT

    but given I have a family, I'd probably opt:

    Challenge Stradale
    one of the Sultan's 456 Estate wagons

    Does the latter count as a classic? ;)

    Or, given what those cars costs, I'd probably just
    get a house with more garage space. :D

    I guess only the first is in the spirit of your question.
    That pair is a match. Another great pair would be:

    575M
    250GTO

    Incidentally, I try to buy 1:18 models in pairs or trios like that.
    So, to go with my yellow 246GT I want a yellow 360 and a yellow F50. Conversely, with my silver 360 and silver F50, I'd love to add a silver 246GT. I got the red 550 in anticipation of getting a red 250GTO (since I've only seen it in red -- though haven't found it for sale at a price I like).
