Silly pronunciation answer

And for the record, a driveline flex-coupling is called a "Giubo" (jew-bo) and not "guibo" (gwee-bo)!

And Alfas - its actually the name of the company that made them originally. The one I pulled of my GTV still said "Giubo."

That will be a GUIDO pronounced weedo, and they drive a Camaro IROC, which IROC stands for ITALIAN RETARDED ON CRUISING
