I'm going to appeal to your sense of decency today, Jalops. Most of you are kind, generous and giving people. That's why I'm asking you to give a certain car a good home.

Not just any car, either — a one-off Lancia Stratos prototype that just showed up on Pistonheads' classifieds page.


The listing says this prototype was "built to see how the car would be accepted before production the next year." How could anyone not like the Stratos? If someone like that even exists, I don't want to be friends with them. The listing also notes that the car "drives beautifully and is in superb order throughout."

Sure, you could waste a bunch of your money adopting a shelter dog or a kid or something. But wouldn't you rather have one of the greatest rallying legends of all time? You don't have to put a Lancia Stratos through college. It's a total no-brainer.

Just look at it sitting there, all sad and alone! It's looking at you like, "Will you be my new mommy?" Someone do the right thing and pick this thing up. Then swing by my house after you do.


Right now it's going for £325,000, or about $515,000. I say Nice Price, but that's just me.
