Dawn, Ben & Mickey take a field trip to Italian Car Day, 2021, thanks to our friend John Montgomery. (Who knew that Italian Car Day welcomes French cars?) We explore the history of the Alfa Romeo logo. Ben reminisces about his “Ferris Bueller” joy ride in his father’s Alfa. The panel discusses whether to tell Misty about the new Fiat Spyder, and its superiority to her MX5. The panel covets Ferraris even though no one could fit in them. And, we learn which Italian supercar shared its platform with the Citroen.

Is there or isn’t there a conspiracy deep within the auto-industry to make your car more difficult for DIY work? And just what kind of secret cabals in the marketing departments come up with some of the most memorable car-names? Mickey, Beka, and Ben ponder these questions and hope that The Man isn’t on to them.
