Car Photo of the Day: Desire.

Filed under: Car Photo Of The Day — chuck goolsbee @ 8:00 am

Can you name this car (small bonus for the blue one in the background, which any car guy should be able to name with one eye tied behind their back!)

I will admit to having a total mancrush on most everything this company has ever built. I can’t explain it but they have always made the most appealing cars. Well, most of them. They’ve coughed up a few hairballs, but the vast majority have fallen somewhere between “Mild Desire”, and ‘I’d kill all of you to have one.”

This example falls in the former category, but I’d still not turn it down. Oddly this marque is rarely recognized when seen by the non-CARnoscenti, and even when you ask car people to name
“[X sorts of] car companies” it falls four or five places down the list, or not even showing up at all.

  3. LOL… yes a 914/6 if I recall correctly.

    The Milano is not the right Alfa though.

    Hint:
