    I don't usually like these re-classics, but that's impressive. Though I somehow feel like the front end is more resolved than the rear.

    My photos don't do the car justice. I actually think the back end is very nice compared to a 356 B

    I think you either really like Zagato or you don't in general. I think the body work he did for Porsche, Alfa, Aston in the late 50's early 60's is some of best cars around.

    If you have never seen an Alfa Romeo TZ2 Zagato Coupe, look it up. One of the most beautiful cars in my opinion. The Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato is also no slouch.

    Hah, that's funny. I was going to say the rear reminds me of an Aston Martin, but thought that was ridiculous. I mean, I have only a passing knowledge of Aston Martins so what do I know?

    No really, I think it looks great.

    My friend Bob showed up in this at the Tuesday night BMW dinner meetup.

    He restored it to absolute perfection.

    Pete, during one of our training days at Summit point a gent showed with the same car also restored to new condition. He drove it with no regard for stone chips or melted rubber. I never showed my cars or curated their existence. Experiencing these cars as they were is the point.

    No, he was from Virginia. That cat was a hero. Gazillion $$ car and he's driving it like it's stolen. Love that.
