"You're driving like an Indianapolis Driver" but it came out as : "Napolis yoorrr.."
and the nick name stuck.

Hey Napolis.. Not sure if you caught this article,
VeloceToday.com Blog Archive The Alfa Romeo 8C is Really Here!

I find it interesting that your P 4/5 paint more closely matches the original 33 Stradale's color, perhaps only in these pictures... We'll all hope for some cool videos like those shown at ferrarichat of the Pininfarina P 4/5.

As far as I'm concerned, you now have the two coolest cars on the planet...

Mr. Glickenhaus,

I'll give you my wife and a minivan if you let me live in your garage?

Ciao tutti

Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione is in Miami

There is an upscale car dealership in Miami called 'The Collection'
They received two Alfa Romeo 8C's ... 1 Black 1 Red. The black one is sold and delivered already ... I went to the dealership to see the remaining car in the show room. They had it in the front window of the dealership for everyone to see. It also had a 'sold' tag .... I was glad to see the car before it too left the dealership.

Just curious to know....who is Napolis (whom everyone seems to know!) and how did he get to buy the first 8c? Was there some kind of drawing? Also, how much is this toy and where was it purchased? Anyone? Thanks.
