I owned a 65 Fiat Abarth. Was a fun little car. I was young jarhead and needed two cars. Wife drove the Vette to work, so I bought this rolled over Abarth, light blue, passenger door tied shut with a military belt. Damned thing ran like hell. It was numbered and had a plaque on the dash, that stated it was a replica of the land speed record holder. It really was fast. And the new ones look remarkably like the original Abarths.
If I was going to replace my Skpel, only a new Vette would be considered. Maybe the NSX Honda. I don't think I would want something that was a little better than what I had and was 10 years newer. Came very close to buying a new yellow and black Vette about 4 months ago. Then went and drove the Skpel and said for the 90K above I would keep it. Test drove it, nicer, quieter, I am sure better, but does not get the looks the Sky gets.
