So I’m filling up the Lancia after picking up dinner and beer and a guy and his wife pull up in a really nice old convertible Bug. He says nice Scorpion you never see those. I say thanks, nice Bug. He asks where I get part for it. My answer is that “it shares a lot of FIAT 124 parts underneath.” He doesn’t say a word and drives off.

I tend to mumble and I think he heard “it’s a Fiero underneath.” I’m bad with people.

Lancia Flaminia Zagato for your time.
