Interesting idea. Is the grill on there just to hide an Alfa grill behind riveted on sheet metal? Or will they brand it a Chrysler.? In February they were boasting that they plan to market in such a way that Alfa will out-sale sister car Fiat in US. So they evidently plan to make Alfa have a strong presence in the US.

The Giulietta that I always loved was the 1959 Veloce Spider. Compared to it, that thing looks like a bread van.

I think you mean Mark Donohue. Clark died before he reached the hospital.

Tru dat. And my grammer and punctuation ain't so hot either if one cares to peruse a bunch of my posts. BUT! My word usage is still mostly on target.
Thanx for the info. My 40k was just a memory/guesstimate of the average fatalities over maybe the last cuppla decades.
Yet, I fail to see the data for the 'walking' fatalities? So the question of which is safer, walking or riding, remains unaddressed.

The left side of the camera, as facing the lens, would have a big shiny chrome button on it. I don't see that in this photo. I could be wrong, but I do own a couple GoPros.

Car and Driver has it as a Chrysler that started as a Lancia. Sane platform as the new Dart

Kind of a sad statement in an otherwise awesome car. Not sure what they are thinking here...

I think that is a "Beaker" hat or similar. As in the muppet character. My daughter has one looks just like it except for the tassle colours.
