    Okay, here's one more. I'll be surprised if anyone gets this one. Maybe I shouldn't be.

    Nope. Give a hint. It's Italian.

    OK, for this one I tried cheating again, so I typed a partial filename ("ktrk 0608") into Google pics and came up with a ton of pics of professional cheerleaders.

    I have no idea what the car is, but I had fun trying to find out!

    by definition it could be classed as a Barchetta.

    I certainly don't know, but I'll take a wild guess... some kind of Lancia?

    Logo on it looks like the new Fiat Abarth one.

    No, it's not a Fiat Abarth. another hint. It's pre-1960.

    Eh, I cheated on that one. I had a pretty good idea so I knew where to look but I was not "sure."

    Well, at least you weren't totally sure. Yes, it is a '55 Abarth 207A, 1100cc. I didn't think that logo was that vivible.

    slick64, it isn't a Fiat logo, but an Abarth logo.

    I mentioned the logo looks the same. I know Fiat would have had their own logo on it. Pretty cool car either way.

    Play another one!

    No, I wasnt. At most, I had an *inkling*. When you said pre 1960, I then moved to "Ah Ha!"

    That was a good one.

    slick64, Abarth has been selling performance equipment and accessories to Fiat and other makes, and making their own race cars for many decades. 'Any car running Abarth equipment rates the scorpion logo. That new Fiat Abarth may be a hot rod or it may just be a trim package. Those little 750 to 1000 cc Fiat Abarths used to absolutely embarrass some much bigger.

    That little 750 Abarth Zagato Double Bubble once set a record average speed of over 120 mph for 24hr.

    The original Fiat 500 had a 2 cyl, 500cc inline air cooled engine. The 650ccc and larger cars were water cooled.

    Bill I haven't really looked into it, but I do believe you are correct that the new Fiat Abarth is really a trim or sport package.

    Rabbi, some guy in Houston owns that Abarth. It was at our Classy /chassis show at the Relliant Stadium.
