What Am I? Tell Taillights

Welcome to another edition of DT's cure for the Monday morning blues -- What Am I? We find a random picture of a car and you get to guess what it is. Last week's Elio shifter was eventually solved by a user with the name "Unknown." This week you are going to stare at these lights and figure out what this is.



What am I? Comments below.

Great job to  Kevin Harper who recognizing this car as a Fiat 128 3p, and Dr D for finding the exact car, located here on eBay.

    1. I think you are right -- specifically I think it is a 1978 Fiat 128 3p Berlinetta Sport: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Fiat-Other-BERLINETTA-SPORT-/400902331376

      Wow...nice pull Kevin Harper. In other news, I learned today that a Fiat shares the same tail lights as my boat trailer.

    4. I actually sold the last two new 128 Coupes in Calgary in 1979. Within one year both cars were showing large numbers of surface rust blossoms.

  2. My first thought was Bond Bug but I don't think that's right.

  3. I was thinking some random Manx or Bradley variant, but didn't find anything indicating that was right. I got nuthin other than to say I'm pretty darn sure it's a kit car.

  6. Tail lights are 128 3P but the vehicle is not. Look at where the glass and side markers are.
