I just got back from The Best of France And Italy, held in Van Nuys, California. It was an awesome experience, despite the 93 degree baking heat (in November, mind you). My only disappointment was the lack of Alfa Romeo Montreals (there was only one). I had intended on making a collage using shots of Montreal B-pillars. Oh well.
I went with my step-dad. He knows nothing about cars. Nothing. That's why I was shocked to learn that he used to own a Fiat 600 Multipla (!) and a Renault Dauphine (!!). Oh, and he turned down a chance to buy a Merc Gullwing for $2,000 (!!!). W. T. F.
Renault Alpine. First Alpine I've ever seen. The rear reminds me of a first generation RX7 or a Porsche 944.
Renault Caravelle. A fellow admirer told me he remembered TV commercials for the Caravelle in which Renault touted the front trunk's ability to act as an ice chest for beach parties.
A lot of Facel Vegas also.
Lancia Fulvia Sport 1600.
Rear end of Lancia reminds me of a Toyota 2000GT.
Tatra T87. There was a constant crowd around this beast. I was not able to take a clean shot. How is this French or Italian?
