Italian Week on Daily Turismo continues with this next beast: Nothing says Italian like a Fiat that was built somewhere near Bombay, India...whoops...I guess it is called Mumbai now and the car was called the Premier Padmini, but would a Fiat 1100 by another other name be as slow?  Sure.  Find this 1969 Fiat 1100 Delight offered for something from $5000 to $7500 in Houston, TX via craigslist.
