One of my dreams cars! I owned the ’77 pedestrian version of the Fiat 131, but drove it like the rally version – well, in my head anyway – have fond memories of these old school Fiats. Besides the 131, I also owned a string of ’70s era models during the ’80s; including a 128, 128 Sport, 124 wagon, and X 1/9. Friends of mine also piloted various 128s, 124 and 850 Spiders. I’ve been in and wrenched on many Fiats back in those days.

Great film, I enjoyed it!

Magnificent car. I drove the standard 131 MIRAFIORI when it was released and it was a fun car. Great sound and the styling was nice when you added some appropriate mags.
I think the 131 in the Abarth form is a fantastic looking car and that sound is music to my ears. Thank you I really loved that film.

I think the Boxy but Good slogan comes from the Dudley Moore movie Crazy people. I’m not sure Volvo used it themselves (or perhaps after it was so memorable from the movie they adopted it).

Great film and cool car.
