The Milano, or 75 in Europe, replaced and represented a derivation of the precedent Alfetta/Giullietta sedans. It kept the earlier editions' transaxle layout coupled with a De Dion rear suspension and guibo-equipped shaft from its front-mounted motor. Unlike the Alfetta, which here used the twin-cam four for power, all Milanos arriving in the U.S. came with Alfa's sweet and revvy V6. Most Milanos here carried the 2.5-litre edition of the two-cams with tiny pushrods engine, but in this 1988 Verde edition, you get the rare and desirable 3.0 which, with its Motronic fuel injection, puts out 183-bhp. Along with the larger, more horsepowery engine, the Verde gets a taller 3.55 (as opposed to 4.11) rear end, and this one is fitted with the 5-speed transaxle. … [Read more...] about For $4,500, Looks Aren’t Everything

It will go down in history as the great Christmas battle of 2012 - waged between two gangs - the Rabid Rotary Club and the Cubic Inch Worms - all over the heart and soul of an LT1-powered '93 Mazda FD. … [Read more...] about For $12,500, This Linolnchero Will Let You Make Your Mark
The motor is claimed to have been professionally yanked from a JDM Toyota Al Jazzera Altezza RS200, and the transplant brought along that car's 6-speed manual for company. The description of those upgrades share ad space with a litany of other hardware that has been either updated or refreshed, including a fast rack up front and a Supra axle in the back. There are plenty of pretty pictures of the colorful underpinnings which include adjustable KYBs featuring little knobs that totally should go up to 11. … [Read more...] about For $13,500, Is This Corolla A Trueno Romance?
Being just four years and change old, this Macan is almost new and does come with a CPO warranty for the next two years and unlimited miles. There’s a modest 62,000 already on the clock and a quick perusal of the pics in the ad show that those miles haven’t been too tax … [Read more...] about At $37,000, Could This 2015 Porsche Twin-Turbo Crossover Have You Saying “Yes, We Macan?”
This 1990 Chevy Beretta Indy Pace Car commemorative edition is thankfully one of the yellow ones since the turquoise is a little too Radwood for my tastes. It also comes in what looks to be in exceptionally decent condition for a Beretta. The base car is not something that people typically maintain like it was grandma’s hand-me-down china or a bruised testicle. Generally, if you’re going to find a Chevy from this era that doesn’t start with “Cor” it’s likely to be ratty.
