Rewind to Turin, Italy, in the 1980s

We’re traveling to Turin, Italy — seriously. We’re probably on the road as you read this. It consequently seemed fitting to take our weekly rewind series back to the home town of Fiat during the middle of the 1980s. What car(s) can you identify in these images? What one(s) would you most like to have in your garage today?

We’d go with the yellow Peugeot 304 coupe parked a few cars away from the phone booths in the last picture.  Of course, we’d be happy with any of the Fiat 500s, and even the white Citroën Méhari parked way in the back of the first picture.

  1. My heart was stolen by the red R5 in pic 1 then I scrolled down to pic 2 – there’s a green early model FIAT 128 and a white Citroen Visa – oh decisions descisions

  2. Ohhh yess I’d go with the Prisma too ❤
    Love that car… my uncle used to have one in my childhood.
    I wonder why I can't see any y10, which was very, very popular there at the time (maybe these pictures are prior to 1985). I lived there a couple of years during my studies, I left a piece of my heart in that city.
