    Not sure WTF to think about this one - It's certainly Interesting. ain't it?!?!? If they ever make a film called "A Clockwork Kitty", this is the car.

    From the description:
    This is a heavily modified 1967 Jaguar XKE. Car was purchased from the dealership in 67, the modifying started in 71 and finally complete in 99. It has custom built rims,custom trim, front end tilts forward and has a (very loud) 1969 Boss 429 Mustang shotgun engine that pumps out 600 horses. Also the eyes on the jaguar emblem light up......​
    (Bold emphasis is mine)

    Was thinking the same thing. One headlight maybe just a little larger to accommodate a high beam/driving light.

    The back looks OK but the front and interior are complete abortions. :eek:

    This was a related car, according to eBay:



    Something for moms to take the kids to school in, I suppose. :)

    All the best,
    Andrew.

    Saw this on bring a trailer. Interesting but I know less than nothing about prewar Fiats. Looks cool for the price.

    I see them all the time in the UK... unfortunately they're usually in pretty terrible condition.

    All the best,

    Thankfully, never, as it is the Euro version of the Pontiac Aztek.

    Have you seen what most people drive in Europe these days? It's mainly hatchbacks with oversized, surprised-looking headlights. The MiTo is a good example of Alfa following the herd in that regard.

    The 916 is positively gorgeous by comparison. Unfortunately, the 3 people I've known who had one all said they were beautiful, passionate, engaging pieces of crap that constantly reminded them to test their breakdown services memberships. One guy broke down so much that the AA started sending him junk mail for car loans to buy something else! :eek:

    All the best,
    Andrew.

    I stand corrected but I am not sure if I should say thank you or damn you! LOL

    Yes, the 916 (Spider and coupe, or GTV) is one of those designs that's best appreciated in person and I suspect the same for its successor, the Brera.

    Really sad to hear about the love/hate ownership experiences (but thanks for the heads up, Andrew).

    No doubt inspired by Luigi Colani designs of the early 70s.

    Why these days ?? Europe has been driving hatchbacks for decades....

    And if you look at gaz prices, road taxes and taxes on new cars you know why.

    And IMO the Mito is one of the few accomplised cars in the B segement.
