Fiat 127 Series 3, a car which I've never understood the point of.  Substantial facelift with a completely new dashboard and lots of other interior changes only one year before the 127 was replaced by the Uno.

I've got the brochure:

Fiat 127 Jan 1983 brochure 01

 

I had one of those 1300Gt's years ago, it went better than my wife's early XR2 she had at the same time. HST537Y if I remember rightly.

Cygnet spotted in Edinburgh yesterday, first time I've seen one up close. Looks a bit like the lovechild of a Fiesta crossbred with a Toyota IQ. Doing plenty of miles between MOTs so may be someone's daily runabout.

Aston got their fingers burnt by this one. But anyone who did manage to buy one can pretty much get their money back now that the collectors/flippers have discovered them.

Did they? I thought it was a tax fiddle to ensure that not everything they sold was a thirsty / high emissions supercar?

Yes it was an emissions tax fiddle, but they made no money on the iQ-rebadge as so few of their target market (existing Aston owners) actually bothered to buy one.

A rather nice spot from MrsDC last week - she'd noticed this parked up in a haulage yard on the way in to work, and on the way home stopped for a pic - just as some lad was enthusiastically putting it through its paces.

Seems to be one of the last Mk3 Scorpios - in 24v Cosworth flavour?

Nice.

 

Meanwhile, its more humble brother is still sitting in a dealership half a mile away...

Spotted months ago in the south of Frants.

I don't believe this falls into the wider bucket of shite so please take this Egyptian Caprice as payment

Not a Caprice but its more conservatively styled fancy brother, the Roadmaster sedan.
