The first of a long line of Giulietta models spanning 11 years, the Sprint Coupe is the most recognizable configuration; it’s Bertone styling predating a long line of admirers with names like 2002, 1500 and 510.

It’s not too often you come across something so beautiful just parked on the street (granted it was near the start of the Monte Shelton rally). Tough I can’t say if it’s all original this one was museum quality, down to the manufacturer stickers on the wheels- Beautiful.
The Mexican axolotl is an odd-looking salamander with a flat head and spiked feet, unusual because it often spends its entire life in the so-called larval stage, like a tadpole, without ever moving to land. “It grows and grows in the same shape, and has the capacity to reproduce,” said the biologist Armando Tovar Garza. “We don’t really know why it doesn’t change.” Its gaze seems to captivate as its gills slowly beat. In Julio Cortázar’s short story “Axolotl,” the narrator is transfixed — “I stayed watching them for an hour and left, unable to think of anything else” — and experiences his own metamorphosis.
