Actually all are wonderful. I was drawn to the Maserati.

Maserati is brutal looking but a must for this thread. The Abarth is quite a beauty though.

This is definitely one of my favourite threads - nice to see some new adds here. I like the variety of the cars shown, and the last three are gems.

So many awesome models! Targa Florio and Mille Miglia are two races I'm actively trying to stay clear from 8-).

You know why Italians speak with their hands? Because they have to work a lot on their engines.

All good additions. I haven't seen the Alpine or Jaguar before, but the Lancia really talks to me (or is that just the voices in my head :D ).

No surprise that I like these last two. I am trying to stay away from obsessing on the Mille Miglia Alfas and Ferraris, apart from the winners, as it's another dark hole to go down!

I'm not a 'numbers on doors' fan but I could make an exception for those two prancing ponies!

Thanks gents for the nice feedback. It is indeed a dark hole and to paraphrase Eddie Murphy in Beverly Hills Cop, "I am deep deep undercover. In fact, I'm so damn deep, even I don't know who I am".

225S is such a pretty car. I am not a universal lover of older Ferraris but this one is quite fetching.

Art Models do some lovely Ferrari's without the usual Ferrari licencing premium. These two are excellent.

That Chaparral must have been a handful on the bumpy, twisty roads of Italy.

I think this is one of my favourites from your recent additions.
