So it appears whenever there's a car-related thread the usual suspects always crop up :

Gordonsmall
Cornish
AirPacific747

Any other car nuts here so we can discuss the advantages/disadvantages of inline vs. straight vs. V vs. rotary ? Big grin

Do station wagons count?

I am very nostalgic for the real station wagons--those we used to have in the USA and those that are still popular in Europe.

I'm always interested in the car threads, though my internet connection often enough chokes on the pic-heavy threads  Sad . But anyway, I love cars, I love driving on the Autobahn, and driving cars is also part of my job. Though I'm still looking for a job that consists of driving large limousines or sports car throughout Germany Big grin .

Although my next car will probably be a Mazda MX-5 (Miata for those across the pond), I'm a bit tired of diesels by now.

The new Brera is a handsome beast too.

Alfa are making some of the few truly beautiful cars on the markets today. There are some really impressive designs out there, but very few can claim to be beautiful like these.
