The Montreal is for Sale!
I have listed the Montreal for sale as it is too much money for a grad student to have tied up in an extra car.

As much as I love the environment, recycle, reuse, install energy saving bulbs, insulate the attic and generally act nicely towards mother nature, there really is nothing on earth that compares to starting up a four cam, hemi Alfa V8. It scares small children, the dog runs unstairs and hides in his bed and the new neighbors wonder at the wisdom of their home purchase. The front spoiler has arrived and it is awfully tempting to make a mold before mounting it. Cmon summer!..April 1, 2009
We took the Monti to lunch the other day. Di and I had pasta and the Monti had about 4 gallons of low octane. In an age when cars are designed to exactly reach their peak from 0-100 kph it's nice to drive an honest car that is geared for high speed motoring. 80 to 120 kph in this car are staggering. Just think about passing someone and you're already past them.. Aug 28, 2008
The Montreal tucked away for the winter but does get the opportunity to startle the neighbours with regular engine start-ups.. Jan 17, 2008
WANTED: the little grills just below the windshield wipers. I have yet to find a source for them.
