8C has to be a style icon of the 21st Century! Like many other 'Dream' cars it is allegedly better to look at than drive....

Agree, I love its looks. And the noise is something to behold too.

British roads have history. Some were built by the Romans. British road investment being what it is, they have only been re-surfaced a few times since.

Very nice racers, but the Alfetta GT is on my wish list. Very elegant car.

Very nice Marcel - the "Nissan" Alfa Romeo Arna. Did not know it was available as a model. :)

The Arna... I don't think I've ever seen more than one of those in 1:1. The Dutch importer didn't want to touch it, so all we got were parallel imports.

Nice selection of Alfas Tom, I have that Bburago 33 too, still missing a gen II facelifted Alfa 33, the ARS one looks nice. I remember the exhaust sound from these 33's and the occasional "bang" when lifting of the throttle. :)

I saw the HPIs and I thought someone might be interested in seeing the same car by Minichamps. This one has a displaced windshield wiper and the trademark MC broomstick antenna. :(

Thanks, Johan. I've just put the Burago 33 back in the display... all the way at the back. Looking at the pictures, it must be one of the crudest 'models' in my collection. I wish someone made a decent replacement...
I recall riding in 33s also, nice boxer engines but the bodies were really badly made. Still like them, though.

There is also a partworksmodel of the Series 1 33. I've seen Polizia and Military versions, but can say for sure if they did a road version.

Thanks Ian, but the Pego's badly misshapen. And the partwork model is off too. I might buy that anyway, as soon as I find a civilian version because it's the most acceptable model. What's up with the 33, that nobody can make a decent model?
