    Not only was she a knock out, she STILL is for a woman her age. Hell, for a woman decades younger. She's freaking 78!! now and looks GREAT. Talk about winning the gene pool jackpot?!!
    And remember, I'm pretty sure everything you see on her is real!

    "Augmentation" hadn't been invented, no Photoshop, No teeth whitening(?). She was to die for. At least in my taste. You go Babs!!

    Sure, here's some info:

    Isotta-Fraschini 8C Monterosa ("Izotta-Fraschini 8C Monterosa") 1947-1949
    The company Isotta-Fraschini tried to resume car production, introducing in 1947 the Tipo 8C Monterosa of Fabio Rapi (Fabio Rapi) and Alessandro Bai (Alessandro Baj). The machine is once again destined for U.S. buyers, which explains its appearance. The name of the model had an allegorical meaning, as the Monterosa - is the highest peak in the Alps on the border between Italy and Switzerland.
    It was a large six-seater car on a steel platform with the rear engine V8, a box with pre-selection of gears and rubber suspension. Radiators and cooling systems were behind. Body of Zagato ("Zagat") was long and sleek, but not quite beautiful. The front looked like a model Rolls-Royce or Mercedes-Benz, and behind Lancia Aprilia ("Lancia Aprilia") and even the Tatra ("Tatra").
    Prior to the car sales significantly upgraded: engine capacity has increased from 2.5 to 3 liters, and power - from 103 to 115 hp, radiator moved forward, and the rubber suspension gave way to spring. The car had developed a neutral handling and speed of 161 km / h We will never know why, with the likely success of the Americans the Italian government in 1949 rejected the project, the company closed its plant and transferring arms concern Breda ("NAC").

    At the time, the Isotta Fraschini Tipo 8C was progressing rapidly. In keeping with the international trend, Lampredi had developed a water-cooled V-8 engine with hemispherical combustion chambers and a 90-degree block, predictive of the FirePower V-8 Chrysler would put into mass production beginning in 1951. The innovative slanted overhead-valve design was actuated by one overhead camshaft per cylinder head. During the developmental stage, different displacements were realized. Lampredi began with a 2.5-liter engine, later increased to 3.0 liters, then to 3.4 liters. It is very interesting to note that the engine, gearbox, and differential were combined in a single block constructed from a special light-metal alloy.
