We were five or six days into our trip, four-wheeling our way across the Colorado wilderness. As we made our way down the 550 freeway, we descended upon Ouray County’s only stoplight, nestled in Ridgway where the 62 freeway meets the 550. With a town population of less than 1,000, it’s a quiet place, perched at the doorstep of the San Juan Mountains, and was to be our stopping point for the afternoon.
The Alfa Romeo 105, host of the GT, GTA, and GTV, is soon to find itself beside the likes of the 911: a layman’s car that is definitive of an era in sports coupes. Its lines are quintessentially Italian, its history is rich, and its soul captivates enthusiasts around the world.

When it comes to SW feature cars, they all hold some type of value. Armand Pranadi’s MR2, however, hits home for us in a rather different way. These days, an MR2 is not something I’d typically take a liking to, but there’s something to be said about this one in particular. Between the oversized fenders, the bright red paint, the massive wheels, and the extravagant looks, it is exactly what would have been on my wall as a kid.
