  1. best grab bag yet! thanks

  2. What a coincidence – I have been fascinated by the idea of the Lancia Fulvia Sport by Zagato for a while now. But there is a part of me that thinks the “normal” Fulvia Coupe may be prettier. Fun fact: the first 700 Zagatos were built with all aluminium bodyshells!

  3. Those Fulvia Zagatos are so hot. Methinks the Quattro shouldn’t be photographed from the side. haha. Looks so odd!

    • Agreed. The shorty UrQ’s look disproportional when view directly from the side. Still, if you know how to drive a SWB car well, they are an absolute thrill (speaking as a one-time passenger, not as someone who could drive one well).

  4. Thanks for the Scirocco 16V pics! This one looks exactly like my beloved ’88, except for the Ronals on mine. First car purchased new, kept it for over 12 years (and many, many exciting miles). Incredible fun for the money!

  5. larry, you’ve been lucky enough to have ridden in a swb quattro? that’s terrific!

    any shots of your old ‘rocco? love those cars with the ronal turbos.

    • In all fairness, it wasn’t during any sort of competition. We were at an Audi club event a number of years ago, and got a brief but thrilling ride. I’m quite certain I don’t have the skills to drive an UrQ in anger – I’d most certainly kill myself (and a very expensive, rare car).

      I’ll see if I can find and scan a photo of my ’88 16V. I had 15″ Ronal R8’s (not the Turbos). 15″ was actually considered pretty big back then!

  6. Great shots! I especially like the Focus RS and the Cobra & Ford GT on the line.

  7. Nice photos!

  8. Okay. I am a woman, and the only two things I happened to like here were the sakura and the sunset 8)

  11. Great!

  12. They’re all so cute and little! My neighbor has a lotus just like that yellow one, only it’s sort of a burgundy color.

  13. Very nice selection and cross-section of performance cars.

    Heh, the Scirocco reminds me of my 83 GTI. Fun car. I even jumped it over a railroad crossing once. I was flying… and then I gouged the oil pan…

    It was my first car, and I’ve yet to own a performance/sports car since. One day however… classic British sportscars are more my speed and style.

  14. Very cool indeed.

  15. Great!!! Thank you for your photos I like Lancia Fulvia Coupè…
