RE: What car is this: the story so far

Could the wheels be 15" six spoke (stock) Speedlines? Is the
hood/headlight/grille configuration similar to a 1990 90 sedan (with the
lights and grille right nest to each other), or to the V6 (93?) 90 sedan
(where the hood extends down the sides of the grille, separating the grille
from the lights)? If they are the Speedlines, and it has the 1990
hood/lights config, I say it's a wannabe with badges. Except for the
"Veloce" on the wheel (mine says "Momo"), you could have described my car,
minus some cool badges.
