      I was expecting some atrocious kit car! A 924 Carrera GT, that's a little better.

      Nice. I bring my Audi and Porsche to Sewickley Audi/Porsche. I never knew they used to service Alfas too. I'll ask them about this car next time I go in.

      This. I must have missed it entirely- never heard of it before. Nevermind that I had probably barely been conceived at the time it debuted.

      Slick wheels- that's my new favorite 924.
