Corse,

back in the 80's before they got the speed limits, the Autostrada was one of the funnst place to be

I lived so close to the Alps, that we very often made weekend trips to Italy (including Kart racing in Jesolo) and trip down there over the mountains and down the Autostrade was half of the fun.

I was driving a 240 hp Golf GTI Mk.1 which weighed a mere 740 kg and EVERY Italian wanted to race, even in the Fiat 500's.
It was soooo cool.....

And now I'm in a country where they put chicken on a pizza and drive like my grandma, after she passed away...

Oh, and btw, Barcelona at rush hour was one of my most horrifying experiences ever

Six cars side by side in a 3 lane road and everybody was color blind, a red light din't cause anybody to stop

When I picked mine last car, GF and I went to do a trip to Italy for 'testing' and some hollydays, most scaring experience was near Milan (whew! those guys are mad, talk about a rush hour at Barcelona).

You'll never know what's a rush hour until you face Madrid rush hour (more like SF traffic jams, but with smaller drive lanes and more stupid drivers). Regarding, speed limits, why not move to Boneville salt flats or into a desert, 100miles near of anywhere?

For not being off topic: very nice car collection, Eddie.
