Group B Sounds.

This video, for me, is essentially an audio battle of the Lancia 037 and the Audi quattro.   The 5 cylinder glory of the Audi and the screaming italian Lancia………the popping of the 5 cylinder clinches it for me.

Volume up, people!

car for sale of the day. flaminia.

err, so this is 20k english quid……but it’s one of the coolest Flaminias i’ve seen, in a beautiful colour.  I’m slightly perplexed by the ‘rally’ seats, as they sort of don’t suit the car……but i will forgive it!

20k pounds….what is that? $35k?  I tell you what…if i was a 55 year old businessman, surrounded by a**holes driving around in red Ferraris—-it’d be great to show up to a meeting in sometime like this.  Timeless.

go buy it: http://www.rtcc.co.uk/index.php?do=lanciaclassics&car=093f65e080a295f8076b1c5722a46aa2
