      A Martini livery would look great on almost any car, so the Lancia Martini is the one at the top there.
      Also, the Rothmans Porsche 911 RSR and the Lotus John Player Special F1 car.

      Chase, here is a question, I am a retiree now and have plenty of time to build my childhood dream sleeper car. However I would like to pick your brain here. Is it possible and feasible to put a Volvo turbo Inline 5 (I think the volvo engine code name is B525..T4) into either an Alfetta sedan or coupe's engine bay? If so I will source the car first and then look for a crashed Volvo in any junkyard. I realize the transmission and the long driveshaft may be the weak links. Will it be able to handle a mildly boosted volvo inline 5 to put out say 220 BHP at the wheels? If you think it is too complicated, how about putting the a 13B rotary engine out of say an RX8. I really like the "sleeper" car idea. Look forward to your feedback.

    Fun fact: the rear bumper sticker say, in french "si tu freines t'es un lache" in english " you'are a coward if you brake" typical french humour...

        Nice car but try to find a gtv6 24 valve motor and you can get close to 500 hp out of it. Then it becomes a different animal., over all nice job buddy.

                            The pointer-man is a pro, obviously. How he handles that pointer with the goofy hand: amazing.

                                        I'm going to the Heacock Classic at VIR week after next. I see a GTV6 registered under the name Glenn Maurer. I'm guessing its the same car. I hope so because I look forward to seeing it.

                                                Love it. Great resto. My dad had one. Biggest problem as he said, lot of flywheel and driveshaft mass, slow shifts with the clutch by the rear mounted tranny.

                                                      Real sports cars focusing on the weight, car's real enemy. Braking late before the apex is more exhilarating than powering out of the corner.

                                                            As always thank you Larry. I really love seeing the not so normal or common car builds specially the more vintage ones. Alphas have always been one of those car that I had respect for and a small place in my heart. But to see this and to hear his back story with it just warms my heart and fuels my love for automotive culture. Imo this is a great way to show respect and love for the yesteryear in car culture. Then coupled with the fact that the car is functional and being used and enjoyed is just freaking wicked awesome imo. Again I dont care what kind of car or how much money. If you put love and passion into a car it shows and to me it shows true value. Simply put I love it. Thank you again Larry your the best.imo

                                                                Plus, the hole between spare tire and original fuel tank is designed for the exaust, it' weird to see that hole empty hahaha

The 2.5 V6 is sweet, but to have a heap more power, the 24V 3.0 or even 3.2V6 is the way to go. The Busso V6 is the next best thing to a Ferrari engine.
