Boxer- Stealth car. Hope it is nicer than the Geo Storm I got my daughter way back when, but at least it was new. She totalled it twice.

White car, white wheels and white background = great color combination

Nicely done!

Not according to the insurance company. Largest engine with a outrageous premium is a 1.4L, after that is is beyond absurd.

It's the new Stealth.

Can't imagine what insurance would look like for a teen with an F50!

Hmmm, 1.4L. A Fiat? Or maybe an Alfa?

Can't see image either, maybe a 'Ghost' - insurance would get you for sure on that. Abarth 500 is a great guess, cool car.

Ferrari: 2001 360 Modena Coupe
Other: 2004 C5 Coupe

Premium would be about equal to the value of the car.

Nice "I just got my license" car! So VW is raiding Mercedes parts bin for W210 front ends these days?

Current: 85' GTS QV
It's a simple process...... it's just complicated by human beings....

Boxer- We had a Polo when we lived in England. Great little cars and the boot area was the world's best solar still. On a nice damp morning, it would condense 2 quarts of water in the boot well until I put in a drain. Imagine they have that fixed by now.

Well it is a 2005 model with 65k miles on it. Insurance premium is equalivant to the value of the car.
