OTAS 820 Giannini: 1969 Lombardi Grand Prix

Italian week is wrapping up over here on DT and I can't believe we haven't posted any cars that were held in place by old pieces of firewood...because nothing says "Italian" like scrap wood wheel chocks.  And nothing says awesome like a rare Fiat 850 based thing that has styling by Giuseppe Rinaldi and something around 100 produced. Find this 1969 Lombardi Grand Prix offered for $5000 in Yuicaipa, CA via craigslist. Tip from Zach. 

From the seller:

  1. Saab Sonett's Judy in disguise

  2. looks very much like a 1987 Porsche 924 to me

    1. Well then it's time for someone to drive you to the optometrist! ;)

  3. Always get a chuckle when one of these pops up. I owned one (briefly) in 1980 or so, still had the original Rich Motors bill of sale and license plate frames (the importer in Glendale, I think?). Imagine all the challenges of Fiat 850 ownership but with a 36" high or so roofline. I shudder thinking of getting in or out of one today....and I owned a GT40 replica as well (also challenging, but nothing like this tiny sucker).

  4. I think we need to be thankful that the lights are not open:

  5. Awwww...c'mon Bobinott.

    That is a Bugeye Sprite drawn by Japanese Anime devote'.

    (and yes, I just said "devote').


    How many other cars have their own emojis?

    A: Not enough

    1. PS I owned that Ghia. Only it was a 'vert. Got more "love your car"s than any other vehicle I've ever owned, before or since. : )

    2. @StanB - yes, when I found that photo, I thought the car REALLY needed to be painted green. Excellent emoji, by the way.
