Hallo,
Alfa's Suck, I can beat any of them with my Mid 1980's Yugo.
Plus, you may want to go to a site that actually is for cars and not boats.

Which means it's time for the old British car joke:

Question: Why do the British drink warm beer?

Answer: Their refrigerators are made by Lucas.

A guy walks into a parts store and says he wants an alternater for a Yugo.
The guy behind the counter says "fair trade"

I own one. 1995 164LS. Great car, and still more beautiful than almost anything else out there.

I'm a Maserati person myself, but an older Jag is a beautiful sight.

To my way of thinking a letter box red, 1955 MG TF was the last "true" sports car ever made (by the traditionalists definition of a "sports car) and the most "beautiful".
Even today it is "without peer" as the greatest "chick magnet" ever made, leaving all other makes in it's wake for that achievement. It is still one of the "nicest and sexiest" cars to cruise the "highways and by ways" in (particularly with the top down and a "stunning" girl next to you), for some reason, girls just love to ride with a man in a TF
One thing that the Italians managed to do better than most, if not all others with Alpha Romeros was to build in rust in places that couldnt be removed, straight from the factory, (that has been my experience with several different models over many years) but they do drive nicely, when parts dont rust and fall away at unexpected and embarrassing times.

For me, just about the most beautiful car ever on the road is the Lamborghini Miura...

Jags - original E-Type, XK-120, some of the racing models... All rate high.

Owned a 73 Alpha Romeo Spider. It was a fun car and never really gave me any problems after we switched the ignition to Bosch. My father had a 72 Jag E- Type I believe this was the last year for the 6-cylinder engine that was far more reliable than the others. Speaking from that era, there was a big misunderstanding about these cars, they had small very powerful engines that needed to be tweaked and tuned on regular business. Having these engines they needed to be ran and ran hard.

To keep this on a sailing thread, I believe the both of them could haul and waterlogged Hobie 21 with power to spare.
