X1/9s Next to Other Vehicles

Yes, amazing. Certainly shorter than any production car. The driver in the black Mercedes-Benz 600 to the left-rear of the Stratos Zero can barely see it over his right front fender!

Now imagine that next to a Dodge Ram 3500 or whatever the giant trucks we've seen on this thread are called.
Trivia: who can name all of these without looking any of them up?

Hangin' with a couple of Bertone cousins:

1968 Bizzarrini GT Strada 5300, somewhere around 130-150 made, most with the Small Block Chevy 327 from the Corvette lineup but with different carburetion to give it about 365HP, as compared to the 1968 Corvette with RPO L79 rated at 350HP.



Is the yellow one a Bertone-Stanguellini?

This pic was taken to send to the former owner of the 850 so I missed half of the Yukon XL Denali sitting next to the Fiat.
Looks like the rear deck of the Fiat is only slightly higher than the 20s on the Yukon.

Drove the X to its very first Cars & Coffee! Super fun to see a bunch of cars in person that I've only ever seen in photos. I even met a couple of other X owners, though they were driving an Alfa, a Lancia, and a 124 today.

I think people had fun seeing it, though it was clearly outclassed by those *other* Italians:


Those are poor-man's air conditioners! Way too hot down here for plain vinyl seats. Plus I love 'em--real '70s vibes. (At least that's what I tell myself...)

The car was originally rosso metallic, but that's actually a two-stage paint job in a very unique Harley-Davidson color. I believe it was used on one of their anniversary/celebratory edition Road Kings (or, more accurately, whatever Road Kings used to be called back in the day). It has some coppery/orange flake in it that shows up in direct sun, but otherwise it is fairly close to the original.
