FIAT FAN­FARE OVER­DUE

The ar­ti­cle on ‘sleeper’ clas­sics

(PC, Sept 2017) was ex­cel­lent – the Fiat Coupé es­pe­cially. My fa­ther was lucky enough to visit Italy for the launch. He had a tour of the Pin­in­fa­rina fac­tory and saw the cars be­ing as­sem­bled. After lunch, he was given the keys to a Coupé and told to ‘en­joy’. My fa­ther headed for the hills to ex­plore the han­dling… he came back full of praise for the car and with many sto­ries to tell. One was when he came to a vil­lage where a fu­neral was tak­ing place. With re­spect, fa­ther stopped, only for the lo­cal Cara­binieri to halt the cortege and wave him through! Only in Italy.

Fiat Coupé: fun even at a fu­neral.
