    Oh my. A newer version of that thing is what comes to mind every time I think of Fiat owning Chrysler. That or the 124 I bought as a teenager for a lot car that broke in half in an hour. Hopefully the fear doesn't become the reality

        Fun car, but really it was a spiritual stablemate of the Suzuki/Geo Metro turbo...the ones seen here in Canada with petrol injection (?) on the side. I think this Innocenti "3 cylindri" actually was a Suzuki underneath. There was a boring pedestrian version, but the Turbo was off the wall in a very Italian way. Turbo, electric windows and of luxo bits, and this wild geometric design carpet that was on the floor and continued up the doors. Nearly bought one new...
