Here's one that hasn't been posted before. Can't find a decent, short description, so here's the basic rundown:

Alfa Romeo Giulietta (1954-1965)
FR layout, 1.3L I4
~1800-1900 lb
53-100 factory hp

Mostly stayed the same over the years with various small visual changes. There were lots of versions... Sorry about the hodgepodge of subpar images.

The affordable:

Berlina:


Spider:


Sprint:




The rare:

Sprint Speciale:




Sprint Zagato:

Has a nice vintage appeal and classic, sleek Alfa looks. That said, it's a bit cartoon-ish looking and 53-100 hp through a 1.3L I4 does nothing to excite me. I know you can't really do this, but the Sprint Speciale and Zagato I'd give a generous "Cool", but the rest get an Uncool. 2 against 3 I say uncool.

Cool.

I wouldn't want to own any of them but if I saw one driving down the street I would definitely turn my head to watch it pass.

Frozen. You aren't a car fan unless you love 1960's Alfas. Sorry folks, I didn't write the rules.

I was getting ready to post the Giulia Sprint GT but never got around to it. The berlina is uncool the rest are cool, the Sprint Zagato and special i'd say are frozen.

The Spider and the specials are gorgeous, but the Sprint, is one of the very best looking cars I've ever come across. Supposedly beautiful to drive too...there's definitely one of those in my dream garage. drool3.gif If there was something past frozen, I'd vote that.

My Mom owned a Spider way before I was born. That keeps this set from being Frozen. Cool. tongue.gif

I bet she had to get rid of it after you came along by accident.

You ruined her life.

If this car is anything less then frozen, I'm going to give up on any hope for this forum.

there's no outstanding reason for it to be frozen, i believe. it is cool though

I'm going to vote uncool... it's ... kind of ugly.

Are you kidding? Imagine picking a girl up for a date in your 1960's Alfa sports car. It doesn't get any cooler than this guys.

Oh dear...maybe it's the photos I posted, but either way I'm shocked. In my mind, this car is what defines cool.
