It might seem a little strange picking an Italian car for St. Patrick's day, but the link is clear: both have a penchant for the four leaf clover, or the Quadrifoglio Verde as it is referred to in Italy. The Irish link to the four leaf clover, but Alfa Romeo's is less so, harking back to 1923 when it began its tenure as the symbol used on Alfa's racers. Since then it's been used on sportier versions of their road cars, as well as occasional race usage. 

You could argue that this example for sale on eBay doesn't necessarily deserve the clover badges on the sides since it appears to be a fairly standard 1600 GT Junior (the GTA version did carry the Quadrifoglio) but can you honestly say 'no' to that face? I couldn't. 

The Alfa is in entirely original condition and was imported to the UK just 10 years ago, with the only noticeable sign of aging taking place on the exhaust manifolds. At just under £19,000 it'll undoubtedly find a good home before too long.
