I see someone in the forum has spotted a 1993 Lancia Dedra and posted a pic. Made me think about the cars and their Fiat group cousins. There are very few left on the road, howmanyleft has the following for the UK (plenty more SORN of coruse)
Alfa 155 - 78
Lancia Dedra - 6
Fiat Tipo (1988-1996) - 63
Fiat Tempra - 26
Anyone own one, are they appearing at classic car shows? Are there big problems getting parts? Major rust issues?
Of the above cars, the 155 seems the one that would be the most desirable to an enthusiast by a big margin. I think they look great in "wide body" form in red with black wheels. BTCC win in 1994, also participated in 1995. The Gardai had 155s as unmarked cars circa 1997. I remember having a fetish for 155s around that time, friends thought I was nuts as they were regarded by many as being as ugly as sin.
