Yeah, exactly like that one :D

The vertical radiator, the vents on the sides of the radiator, the curvy shape of the hood, the shape of the back end sides... too many similarities. Of course most of those details are not unique on those brands and models, it was something from those years, but too suspicious anyways.

And speaking about SEAT producing FIAT... here what I consider a complete abomination, the 600 four door sedan, that was not longer a 600 but a 800:

Better than the current "500"s that are 1242cc...

Hi, I did not find the matching FIAT coupe in files, only the Spider...
The SEAT 124 Sport I've posted let's say is the coupe version, well... the 2 door sedan, of the 124 4 door sedan:



As far as I know, the 124 Spider like the one you posted was not manufactured by SEAT, only FIAT.

Hi, a "never-wozzer" (in 1995) - I had this SL320 for a day and used it for typical business travel (autobahn/country roads/city).

I did not buy it, because with the softtop closed it made annoying buffeting wind noise above 120 km/h, and I kept my 300SE.

A nice pair of 4 door sedan, Peugeot 403 and 404:

A 1975 black 404 with bordeaux interior was my family's car, I do not have any memories from my childhood and adolescence without it, even did my driver license exam with it, a very nice, comfortable and easy to drive car. My father sold it about 2 years ago in a perfect condition.

Possibly Pininfarina's best practical design!

Well, I must say, I still find it appealing. --- Maybe that's the reason why you see this car quite often here. The owners find it worth keeping and maintaining ... ---

My home page is some sort of news feed and one of the stories today is a list of the most iconic British cars of all time which includes the DeLorean.
