Yeah, I was reaching a little with the "Starsky and Hutch" but I haven't seen the Clint Eastwood movie; also, if the black Ferrari is  the one used on "Miami Vice", it is actually a replica built on a Corvette C3 chassis but I'd still love to have it...

It would most likely be in the states. I haven't begun serious research yet.

 

I've had a Mazda 3 before and it was brilliant for a car of that size. Some old lady forgot to put her car in park and her beast ancient Chrysler went down a fucking hill and crushed my 3. I was livid. So now I'm left driving a Jeep Cherokee which is a nice vehicle, but not what I want to be driving. It's like driving a tank.

Hell of a difference in price. I don't think the gap would be that wide in the states, but still significant. The Cooper really impressed me when I first saw it some time ago. Although I haven't driven one.

I had a Lancia Scorpien, which was similar to the 1/9 in the engine and placement and it was my favorite!

Unfortunately, by the time they put all of the smog gear on it, it was woefully under powered, so I had it removed and turbocharged and it was a rocket! 

Sadly, parts were impossible to locate, and I sold it.....
