I just purchased a 1990 Allante and have a few thoughts about my new toy. I've owned about 50 vehicles including a 1946 Chevy pickup, a 1946 Jaguar 3 1/2 Litre DHC, a pair of 1955 Jaguar XK140 DHCs, two E-Type Jags, a pair of XJ6Cs, a Benz 250C, a 1960 Thunderbird convertible, a pair of 1955 Porsche replicas (550 Spyder and 356 Speedster) and a 1962 Lincoln Continental convertible.
Most of those listed were the kind of car that I would turnaround and look at as I left them in parking lots or driveways. Their good looks were compelling. I've notice the same with my Allante. I have gone out to the garage several times since buying her just to take a look. The Pininfarina body is a work of art.
It's a car that speaks to me. Is anybody else smitten by theirs?
