In my first installment I focused on the "High's and Low's" in terms of price, but today as I perused Wayne Carini's F40 Motorsports site, I found some other vehicles that grabbed my attention and not only based on low price.

When I was a teen, my brother had a kickin' 1976 Triumph TR-6. Now, think about that for a moment. This is 1982 or 1983. He had a less than 10 year old car, though I do remember it was dodgy in many respects until he sorted the whole thing out. Well, Wayne has a tempting TR-6 up for sale. The particulars (sparse as they are, apparently they have no time to write up a narrative):

Cylinders:6 Cylinder
Exterior Color:Blue
Interior Color:Black
Stock Number:531U

Like any car with a straight 6, in my experience at any rate, this car probably pulls like a freight train. I remember many, many tire roasting sessions in my brother's car. (Note: I'm pretty sure I'm way past the "I hooned with my brother's car" Statute of Limitations). This car is a deal at $14,600.00. I think it is the low-price car on his site, but I don't care because it's awesome, unless you needed to have your gauges be accurate or even working.


On the high side, Wayne is offering an Italian from other than Maranello: 1961 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint Speciale. Apparently my appreciation for this car isn't held by me alone. Jalopnik covered what looks to be this exact car in 2011.

Cylinders:4 Cylinder
Exterior Color:Red
Interior Color:Red/Grey
Stock Number:7251

This luscious beauty can be yours for only $139,000.

Let's face it, neither of these cars are going to be DDs, but they are both wonderful in their own way.
