24 Hours Of LeMons Arse Freeze-A-Palooza Über Gallery: Pasta Burners

It's just not racing without Italian cars, and we're fortunate that mere mortals are so terrified of Fiats and Alfas that the prices are quite reasonable for not-so-perfect examples.

Alfa Romeo 8C Spider Rears Its Extremely Pretty Head

It's not often that I quickly look past blonde and presumably Italian (or maybe Swiss) "booth professionals," but the Alfa Romeo 8C Spider has that affect on a man. Yes, friends, the highly anticipated Geneva debut of the Spider is finally here. This car has the same 450 HP 4.7-liter V8 as its brother, the 8C… » 3/05/08 3:45pm 3/05/08 3:45pm
