News: The Volkswagen Golf GTI MkI Remembered

1977 was the year that the Medallion Man roamed Britain’s highways, quite often at the wheel of a Ford Capri 1300L decorated to look resemble a 3000S. His sartorial role model was Alan ‘Fluff’ Freeman, his jewellery was real imitation gold – and his confusion on seeing the first imports of the Volkswagen Golf GTi was immense.

News: DO YOU REMEMBER THE FIAT 850 COUPE?

‘There are three types of GT’ proclaimed Fiat GB in 1968. The ones that are little more than an ordinary saloon cars, nicely packaged. The ones that are hot but leave you cold aesthetically. And the ones that are real stoppers to look at – real goers when you get behind the wheel. In short, cars such as the 124 Coupe and the 850 Coupe – latter representing ‘11’ 10” of sheer excitement’.

News: DO YOU REMEMBER – THE FIAT 124 SPORT COUPE?

When Fiat launched their 124 saloon in 1966, few observers would have been surprised to learn that they were planning a two-door high-performance version.

News: CELEBRATING CAR CLUBS – THE FIAT MOTOR CLUB

For many years, I have been an enthusiast of Fiats of all ages, shapes and sizes. The sight of that police 2300 Berlina in a re-screening of After The Fox made me crave its tail-finned magnificence and one of the highlights of any 1970s “Poliziottesco” film is the sheer number of 124s in the background of the mean streets of Rome.

News: The Mini from Spain – Simon Wheatcroft's Authi Cooper 1300

‘Most people think it is either an Innocenti or a British Mini with Innocenti bits – about one person per year recognises it as an Authi’. In 1965 the British Motor Corporation signed an agreement with Nueva Montaña Quijano S.A. to form Authi - Automoviles de Turismo Hispano Ingleses – and Simon Wheatcroft’s Cooper 1300 is one of over 140,000 Minis to leave the Pamplona factory.

News: 50 Years of the FIAT 125

Put simply, the Fiat 125 is one of the great Q-cars of the 1960s. Its restrained styling may have been derived from the 124 but beneath that business-like exterior was a 1,608cc DOHC engine, servo-assisted disc brakes on all four wheels disc braked sports saloon and a top speed that approached the magic 100 mph figure. What's not to like?

News: Forgotten Cars Of The 1970s – The Polski Fiat 125p

"She looks winsome. They look like bit actors from Man About the House. The fashions look as though they were created in the dark. And the car in the middle of the frame is the Polski-Fiat 125p which, for many years, was second fiddle in the British market to the Lada." - Written by Andy Roberts
