That license plate was on a car from Lethal Weapon and when Conan O’Brien gave a beater car to a staff member.

Mike doesn’t often pick a dud, but this one certainly fits that category. Sure, Alfas have a great reputation as a driver’s car, but they are also supposed to look the part – the 164 does not. Let’s be honest, it’s just a boring box of a car with no styling no matter how much work Ant puts into it.
