Now I've got to clean up the drool all over the keyboard.
Seen rumbling about in salty Michigan today...
I read once that the Countach name came from the expression "K'ntarsh," which in a regional dialect (Piemontese) means "Holy shit!"
Having trouble copying this.
It's on the Alfaholics website, https://www.alfaholics.com/our-cars...lics-zagato-r-019/completed-ready-to-deliver/
along with lots of other stuff to make you weak at the knees.
More Alfa fun
I never considered Piaggio Vespa to be exotic...
You could post that in "Girl on old motorcycle..." thread under Old's Cool too...
I thought it was anything Italian on wheels, she's certainly Italian.
Twas a joke...
@Speedo66- Needs to be crossposted here - a dedicated thread for scooter girls.
Ferrari isn't pleased with this guy....
I saw a Lambo near St. Cloud, MN last month. All I could think was WTF is that guy doing driving that car here in the winter.
That's a great car, but the video highlights the geekery around originality that kills the fun around old cars for me. If its worth that much, its no longer a car. Its an investment.
Will it be better with 22" inch wheels and an LS or Cummins stuffed in the back then? If you don't like rare and exotic that's fine, your thing, but sometimes originality is something worth holding on to.
But valuable cars are an investment even if they are new. There is a multitude of vehicles that you fuck around with and no one else gives a shit.
I'd love one of the Alfa's that Alfaholics produce. Carbon fibre panels, completely different engine, suspension, brakes and totally re trimmed interior - but that costs about 10x a reasonable standard example.
Even a run of the mill Corvette's value is determined by originality, i.e., "numbers matching".
