A bit less famous than "sister" Miura - '69 Lambo Islero 3.9L V12...
Would be a beautiful car, except for the awkward roof line and giant rear window.
The one on the right. I don't care if somebody is already tired of her shit.
Can't see neither the red or gulf colored GTA at the back??
Can you "axe" the sweetie to move her cough, cough, self and not photobomb 'Talian great clunkers gatherin' and then retake the pitcher?!
Possibly the cheapest Alfa you're likely to find these days.

GTA Jr. Tribute Car
Fabulous racer needs new home.
This car is a serious racing weapon. Built and raced late 60’s early 70’s – SCCA C-Sedan. Recommissioned to run in SVRA and VDCA in 2004. Not raced since 2009. This step-nose coupe is Chassis number AR 6 16012, which makes it a Tipo 105.02 – a 1965 Giulia Sprint GT. At some point during its life as a racer GTAm style wide-body fenders were added.
In the early 2000’s, after a long period of dormancy this car was acquired by Judge Parker Racing and sold to its current owner who set about recommissioning the car. SVRA log book included. This car is equipped with lightweight fiberglass fenders. Sadly, we have no documentation to confirm the history of this car, but all evidence points to the fact that this is a well developed old race car. I drove a few laps around VIR in this car and can attest to its solid feel and performance potential.
No expense was sparred in the restoration of this racing machine.
This car is in impressive condition. It is equipped with a very high reving 1300cc engine, it is one of the faster Vintage Group 1 cars you can find.

I especially like the high dollar zip ties holding the rear brake line to the axle.
Who'd thunk it that a tractor manufacturer will rise to make some of the most memorable super cars, and all that out of spite cuz his Purrari, sorry Ferrari, didn't work as "advertised"... Enter '60 Lamborghini 3352R 3 cyl 2.2L diesel tractor w mind blowing 35 HP (and is pulling good money for what it is)...
'66 Duetto took disillusioned graduate Benji to Mrs. Robinson in no time flat...
The profile pic of that car is ...
^^^^Duetto "Boat Tail" (this one ^^^^) is so much better looking than the later "Bob tail", squared off with the faux spoiler . . . but a larger trunk I guess.
1953 Ferrari 250 Mille Miglia Vignale Spider
Alfa should've never changed that beautiful tail of Duetto. Otoh, I did like interior, especially instrument cluster/gear shift lever, and engines of later Alfa Spiders over Duetto's - will see if I got any pics in my scrapbook folder...
So, ideally, Duetto body and rest of the interior/engine of later Spiders would've been a killer combo...
Yeah, but at the time, the introduction of Kamm tails made everything else look old fashioned and obsolete. It's only in retrospect....
Really crappy image, but Lambo agg is now being hyped as up market garden tractors.
This lil' fella is beggin' to get its neck wrung out on a twisty road - '72 Abarth 695 SS or "esse esse" (pronounced w 'Talian accent - same lettering found on passenger side of instr. panel)...
And the best movie ever made, IMO. It has it all: story line, cast, cinematography, original (and fantastic) Simon & Garfunkel sound track. My former girlfriend voted Its a Wonderful Life but I maintain that The Graduate is the best.
