You all know ive been chaseing brown haired women recently ....But this girl seriously looked awesome topless ......I had to have her .....She was left by her ex lover .....Abandoned , dirty, and sick... she still took my breath away ....


Her name ? Alyssa ..... She was born in detroit , but her dad Pinnafarina donated from italy ...

Shes a 89 Allante .....Maroon ....Shes in decent shape but if i remeber right it was diagnosed for a headgasket failure.....So im gonna take her in , and rehab her ....I remeber when Gladys was in this shape , and now that shes perfect i wanted something new to do ....and i wanted to build a 5.0 Allante style engine ....so this is my chance ....Were right now working with the owner to see if they want to send us the title ....They owe for the diag and another service , and once everythings stright i pay the bill on the car and itll be mine (a damn good deal)

I do , there not much diffrent , the outside of the car was pretty damned nice , and the interior was decent ....so the pictures never really did justice to what all has been done ...

she stared out a 50 footer , and became .....a 1 footer

WHAT??? This isn't about a girl??? That student you sit with??!!

Oh well, ever since I saw that Allante parked behind my building I fall in love too. Are there any concerns about parts for these cars? I bet the parts are more expensive than any other modern Caddy because of rarity, etc.

Sounds like a plan..:)

You can't imagine how hard it is to get parts, my passanger seat would only go forward. The dealer had to move it all the way back and disconnect the switch because they only one they found was burgundy and I had the saddle interior. But oh, what a looker. I never drive it anymore because I'm afraid it is going to break down and leave me stranded. What is so strange about it it, it dies, they tow it, it starts right up for them. They think I'm a dumb blonde, humor me, replace the alternator, battery, whatever, and doesn't the damn thing die as I'm driving it home. We have been through this routine many, many times. I found a guy who specialized in electrical problems, he had no problems, started right up when they detached it from the tow truck. My friend picked it up for me ( the shop closed before I got out of work) and doesn't it die on him. But like I said, it is a beauty. I was thinking about trading it in on a new car. The damn thing dies so often the friend I was out looking with had to follow me in her own car. After we were done she said to me, "If they aren't going to give you very much in trade, you should keep it, it's absolutely beautiful". I did. You will probably have better luck though, you seem to understand mechanical things, for me, cars are for going out in.
