    You do......how do you think I feel.

    I keep looking at Pontiac G8's. But then I look at something old and British and then I feel I need to own an Alfa one time in my life. One of my dream cars is an Alfa GTV, unfortunately they have taken off in the past few years.

    And the masochist in me has me search for S8's , V70R's, E39 M5's, on a monthly basis.

    And then I look for anything Green.

    Well pull the trigger, son!

    Yeah all that heavy Euro iron is gonna cost a pretty penny in maintenance.

    eBay shows a lot of Alfa's going for top dollar (or more) but the beaters on Craigslist are still decently priced. #mudfolk

    The Type 75 isn't a bad way to Alfa. Whether an Alfetta, GTV6, or even Milano. You don't get the dead-sexy GTV looks, but you can get the luscious V6 and that's not a bad compromise.

    Regal Peacock is a great color.

    Though I don't think I could ever own a Chevy. Maybe a Corvette or a Mid 90s Impala SS or a Fly Yellow Beretta Indy. Otherwise I'm a Pontiac or Buick person.

    No love for the current Regal GS with AWD? I didn't think they looked too bad.

    Optional six-speed manual available in the FWD Regal GS only.

    It looks great, but continues a trend of not being able to combine the items that would make it truly stand out. How many vehicles in the last 10 years have an optional more powerful engine, all wheel drive and manual transmission, but no way to have all three together?

    In this day and age having a powerful engine in a mid-sized sedan is not all that special. I bet every midsize sedan has a 250-300 hp engine, and probably some package that gives it big wheels or some other form of "sporty" look/package. That's not enough to be special, that's just table stakes nowadays.
