Here another 33, in bad shape, found in my village. On the back an old and quite rusted Alfetta

And an original Fiat Panda.

I saw literally dozens of original Pandas in Italy this year on holiday. They seem to be like how the Fiat 500s were in the early 80s- cheap old runarounds.

Ciao

John

Love Alfettas. Shame they mostly have rotted away now. Crying or Very sad

Yes John,
it seems strange even to me but original Pandas seem unbelievably hard to die, there are millions of them still around, even if the last one
was produced almost 15 year ago.

@eagle3: I'm not really an Alfetta's fan, bcs this car remembers me a not very happy period of Italian history (between 70s and 80s)
called 'anni di piombo' litterally 'lead years' due to the lots of fights everyday taking place between police and political and common outlaws.
Alfetta is the 'icon' car of those years, the car preferred by police and bandits. Anyway, apart for the rust, it was a nice
family-sportly car with a sophisticated mechanical design. But I prefer the more 'pacific' 33s Smile

bye

Mario
