1947 Alfa Romeo 6C 2500 SS Cabriolet

Alfa Romeo offered a full range of models within the 6C 2500 line, from the Freccia d’Oro sedans to lightweight competition spiders. Although prewar in its basic design, the post-war 6C 2500s were boldly innovative among their competitors and contemporaries. Introduced in 1939 as a successor to the highly successful 6C 2300, the 6C 2500 was already a highly developed and competent automobile when production resumed in 1946.

The modest Turismo single-carbureted version produced 87 bhp, while the triple-carbureted SS Read More

1961 Fiat Jolly 500

The expense of restoring these cars can be surprisingly high even if you
get the local basket-weaving class to refurbish your seats for free

{vsig}2005-9_1873{/vsig}

Few cars that Fiat produced had the “cuteness” of the Jolly. With coachwork by Ghia, the Fiat Jolly 500 was introduced in 1957, and had no real practical use, except for that of pure enjoyment. Many wealthy playboys, such as Fiat chief Gianni Agnelli, would Read More

1966-85 Fiat 124 Sport Coupe and Spider

Although the “Fix It Again, Tony” reputation of these cars will not die,
at least they’re cheap to repair

Reviewing the Fiat 124 when new, Car and Driver wrote, “The Fiat 124 Sport Coupe costs $1,400 less than an Alfa 1750 GT Veloce and $2,300 less than a Porsche 912. Within the limits of sanity it handles just as well, it has way more useful room inside, and it even has Read More

1972 Maserati Boomerang Concept

Credit or blame it, this car inspired years of “folded paper” design

{vsig}2005-5_1838{/vsig}

The Maserati Boomerang was first displayed as a non-functional model at the Turin Motor Show in 1971. By the Geneva Salon of March 1972, it had been transformed into a fully operational vehicle, fitted with the race-bred, 4.7-liter Maserati V8, developing no less than 310 hp. It was claimed to be good for an indicated top speed of Read More

1976 Alfa Romeo Alfetta Sedan

When I first saw the car, it took my breath away. “Who would do a $65,000 restoration on an Alfetta sedan?” I wondered

Its classic Alfa 2,000-cc inline four-cylinder has been treated to a recent rebuild, and it is fitted with dual Weber carbs. All the stainless trim has been restored, while all the Read More

1992 Lancia Hyena

Integrales of any sort are incredible performance machines, massively
capable in almost all conditions, sort of the Subaru WRX of their day

{vsig}2005-4_1832{/vsig}

This Lancia Hyena was purchased new by the present owner from Walkers Garage, official Lancia factory-appointed Integrale specialists for the U.K., who sourced the car from Zagato. Its owner wanted a car that was part ultra-performance, part long-distance GT, capable of conveying him from the U.K. to Read More

1966 Alfa Romeo Giulia GTC

By the time you made this car into a driver, you’d be so far underwater that Hurricane Isabel would seem like a spring shower

{vsig}2005-3_1822{/vsig}

As described by the seller on eBay Motors: This 1966 Giulia GTC is a true rarity, one of only 25 imported into the U.S. in 1966, and one of only 1,000 produced. Bertone designed this classic cabriolet, powered by a 1,570-cc, DOHC four-cylinder engine, with maximum Read More

1974 Alfa Romeo GTV

By any measure, $30k is a huge price, as these cars usually trade in the $10,000-$15,000 range

{vsig}2005-2_1815{/vsig}

As described by the seller on eBay Motors: This is a one of a kind 1974 Alfa Romeo GTV 2000. It is in absolutely mint condition, with 12,776 documented miles. It was purchased new by my wife from Alfa of Tacoma in 1976 and reportedly was one of the last GTVs to be Read More

{vsig}2004-9_1207{/vsig}

A race-developed V6 engine, superlative handling and sensational Pinin Farina styling: These are the ingredients of a sports car classic and the Lancia Aurelia B24 has them all.
