British Auto: 1977 MGB

The 1977 MGB is a unique- looking foreign car which certainly stands apart from the more stereotypical American classic cars from the 1970s. Assembled under the direction of British car maker MG Cars, this sports car is one classified as a roadster.  Succeeding its predecessor, the MGA, the MGB was first introduced in 1962 and had a respectable run before it came to an end in 1980. Relatively few were produced, totaling about 399,000 units in its 19-year run.

1973 Alfa Romeo GTV 2000

First introduced in 1971, the Alfa Romeo 2000 GTV was an exciting 2-door coupe which had a great European quality that set it apart from other sports cars of its day. This was a model which teenagers and car enthusiasts alike could appreciate, and indeed, many still do. To make this model stand out from other Alfa Romeo models, the front grille added an exciting element to the car. Horizontal chrome bars gleamed on the grille, and the Alfa heart outline was displayed prominently in the middle. This grille would eventually become standard on the other models as well, but its appearance on the 2000 GTV made the model even more unique from other Alfa Romeo models. Below is a more comprehensive overview of other features in the 1973 Alfa Romeo 2000 GTV.
