    Used to drive a 91 Toyota Camry but sold it just recently to be able to ride on the bus, its much less stressful when someone else drives you.

    Grand prix for most everyday driving all year round.

    Cobra II for Summer only and on dry days... or super fast trips.... (not uncommon to be doing 150-200km/h (90-120mph) everywhere you go with it....

    I've several other vehicles i drive too.. depending on the situation..

    Depending on the trailer... obviously the 22 wheeler for hauling grain.... Fully loaded (WAY OVERWEIGHT mind you) is about 1400-1600 bushels with that Tri-axle trailer.

    Typically i don't drive this often.... Legally none of us can.. but we do :p (private property for the win)

    the little semi though is a modified 2 ton grain truck.... current trailer on it is a ESSO Fuel tanker... used to haul water for chemical or watering plants... otherwise it has a 600 bushel grain trailer for everything else..

    Suckers FUN as hell to drive..... and impressive considering the 283 v8 in it that is still the orginal (even has a oil bath air filter system on the sucker lol)

    [​IMG]

    Among the tractors.. i drive this one for the odd jobs and general work... while my father drives the newer 2375 Versatile... The one i drive is the 555 versatile..... 1981... orginal engine and the works... 20,000 hours on it.... pretty damn amazing mind you and work great yet..

    unfortunately i don't have any REAL up to date good photos ... as i just yanked these off my sisters facebook albums.

    Theres plenty of others..

    School bus that's been converted into a mobile shop...

    3ton Grain truck (350bushel)

    1965 Mercury Park Lane

    1978 Lincoln Continental Mark V

    1973 Delta 88 Oldsmobile

    1994 Dodge 3/4 ton Truck

    Case 2090 2 wheel drive tractor

    One thing the other two has that it doesn't is a V6.. that's the thing speaking against the Giulietta, and the fact that it's a completely new model.

    Then you by all means have to get the spyder, unless you're like me and like hard tops.

    Yeah they're not popular around here making them a highly unique car if you drive them in North America.

    Well, then again it's a pretty sexy car, especially the rear.. And it will definately be cheaper than the other two. The Spider is nice and on a warm summer like this it would be great, but cabs aren't that fun during swedish winters that can go from +5 to -25 and back to +5 (Celsius of course) again within a day or two.

    All I know for sure is, like all of my previous cars (with one exception of an Opel Kadett Caravan (or Vauxhall for you brits) that I got to use for work) it will be an Alfa Romeo and it's gonna be my first brand new car ever. Then what I'll finally end up with is another story. I know it won't be an 8C Competizione though! ;)

    Saskatchewan winters go all the way down to 40 below with the wind chill so I know where you're coming from, the hard top is your only choice out of those three then if you want to drive it all year round. Unless there are other options you're not showing us. :)

    Oh, I see, you really should get one, but if I was learning to ride I'd get a nice el cheapo one to learn on then save for a really powerful one (2000 to 3000cc) later.
