I would love to see those Trans Am cars going down the cork screw at Laguna Seca. All that weight and all that power must have been a blast. Also always great to see a SAAB in the grab bag. Great Selection.

Oh wow, this Grab Bag was even better than most. I had to stop and ponder many of the amazing pictures like the Audi A6/200 wagon, the Lancia on the safai rally, the audi rally cars, the Lambo one off and the other audi rally pictures. Great work!

So many great action shots this week. Wasn’t there some controversy as to whether that Alfa GTV shooting brake actually existed?

It does appear to be a very clever Photoshop:
Some ‘real’ ones here— including the offending fake in question:
I’m not bummed at this discovery, actually— the coupe is much lovelier than the shooting brake in this case

As a hater of NASCAR…I have to admit that action shot of the pit crew is wall worthy.

Good idea for a future post
Also, I would be inclined to agree, but there is something mesmerizing about a dirt track oval that I can appreciate:

Great Selection! Very well put together. Quite liked the White BMW 5 Series Estate & there was something about that Honda (NSX?) in action, which was appealing to the eye.

I want that red 200q20v with every fiber of my being. It has 16″ ACT LSs, the same wheels I had on my old 4000 quattro. Where’d you find the pic, if you don’t mind my asking?

I don’t know, to be honest, as it had been so long. However, doing a reverse-image search, I was able to track one source down to a Latvian enthusiast forum:

Great thread, with a lot of Type 44 eye candy. Thanks for that!

I love those ACT/Ronal LSes as well, by the way— they look great as 15s on E30s also:
Makes me miss mine!

Yep, mine were 15s as well.
They give just the right amount of edge without going overboard, and look period.

I agree with brennerl, great selections this week. That gray MK1 Scirocco though… So HOT! Source?
Nice job guys,

Reverse-image search turns up the usual suspects:
