dre is right. It's a trim level on the Alfa Romeo Spider, sold in the US as the Spider Graduate, Spider Quadrafoglio, Spider 2000, and various other names. But they all fall under the Alfa Romeo Spider model name.

I love all of the old Mustangs before they were redesigned in the 80's. Also the '69 Camaro and the '71 Chevelle are in my top list.

But my all time favorite classic car is the '32 and '33 Ford Coupe. Customized right they are some of the best looking cars out there.

Classics...

You absolutely CANNOT go wrong with any of the old Shelby Mustangs like the GT350's and GT500's, nor with the 427-powered Shelby Cobra. All Boss Mustangs. And, one of the greatest: the 1971 Chevelle SS 454LS6. Of course, I am a bit biased toward MY 1972 Ford Ranchero 500 powered by a self built classic 302...:finger:

Mine is a 1936 Ford Pickup PRO STREET.468 BB CHevy, blower,narrowed 9", Pewter metallic , no money spared-2 shows, 3 trophies-a real nice driver. Truck is in Nashua, NH
Wanted to enclose pictures, but files are too large. I have a site with 4 good pictures.
xxxoutlaw@aol.com Contact me for pictures- title your message 36 FORD.

HERE IS THE AMAZING PART-----He calls it "MR TRUCKY"
This truck was built by a BLIND MAN with help of family and friends. It became an obsession to build the best truck he could afford. He put his heart and soul in it never planning to sell it cause he feels he will see and drive sometime. That hasn't happened. It is all NEW. Every nut and bolt. He built it, but has never seen or driven it! He wants to sell it-$35,000 U.S. or best offer.
Someone will buy this truck and treasure it forever-it could be you.
One of the finest vehicles I have ever seen and driven! I wish he would keep it- I like driving it. It is the 9th vehicle he built, pictures of 7 of them are in the Don Garlit's Museum in Ocala,Florida.
I can attest to his work- I bought number 8-a 1969 Nova SS 427 called "BLINDMAN"S BLUFF 8"--- AWESOME every where I go.
BELIEVE IT !
Interested in more info, xxxoutlaw@aol.com

Indeed man ! Modern cars do not have the character classics have.
I forgot to mention the muscle-cars ! AMC , Dodge , Ford , Pontiac ... man those were the days. Just maybe I buy one within a few months.
(I can't choose between a BMW 523i of 1994 a BMW 635CSi of 1979 and a Pontiac Firebird 170 of 1970.)

Forgot these as well:

Lotus Super Seven , Opel GT , Porsche 944 , Ford Capri , Alfa Romeo Montreal , Austin Healy 3000MK3 , Porsche 911
