  1. You will NEVER see a Porsche pulling a boat in the US. We need a F350 minimum!

    Nice collection of Alfa shots in this Grab Bag!

  2. I’ve never been a fan of Mustangs in general, but the ’65 fastbacks in race trim just do something right for me.

    Sometimes I wish my wife would let me get a vintage motorcycle, but at least she lets me put those dollars into fun cars. Oh, wait, no… she doesn’t let me do that, either.

  3. The vintage Mustang ad copy was pretty entertaining, thanks. Definitely worth the read.

    It seems there’s always an E30 touring sneaking it’s way into the grab bag lately. Between that, the Scirocco GT, and all the Alfa and E28 M-goodness, great grab bag this week!

  4. The Renault getting the checked flag is my fav this week; a sweet spot of our racing past.

  5. Is it just me, or are E28s always much prettier than E30s?

    I can’t think of anywhere in history that would be more fun to be than a rally pit station in the 80s.

    • That’s tough, as I do also have a soft spot for E30s. It’s true that the pronounced sharknose profile of the E28 is more striking to behold than the E30. I’ll hedge this response by saying I might go for a Euro-bumpered E28 over any E30 this side of an M3, but that I’d prefer a small-bumpered E30 over any E28 with diving boards.

      • The nose really does it for me, but the lines are still better from other angles. The box fenders on the M3 are a great addition, but the flat front just leaves me uninspired. Maybe it’s because I’m used to looking at them every day, but the diving boards don’t ruin the car for me. The big bumpers on E30s don’t look nearly as right (or should I say they look more wrong?)

  6. That transmission pic presents like a display in an art museum!

  7. what is that red right hand drive number below the Aston and above the E30 M3? It looks like it has an Alfa badge but I didn’t find it on the Alfa history page.
