It can be very difficult to identify some of the cars that I have photographed around Europe. Especially those discovered in Eastern Europe. This beautiful red car was not obviously marked in any way, so I was not sure exactly what it was at the time.What I have learned over time, and through research is that a Fiat is often the origin of other cars found in Russia, or ...

Cool Old Fiat Cars
This is an interesting car. Another fantastic looking pale blue car, a Murat 124 found in Istanbul, Turkey.It kind of looks like a Lada. This makes sense because it was this very car (actually the Fiat 124) that was the basis for the birth of the Lada which was produced in Russia until 1988 where it was known as the VAZ-2101, and the Lada 1200 in Eastern Europe.Nice ...

Positano is a wonderful place on the Amalfi coast in Italy, and is home to many an old Fiat car, mostly Fiat 500's. We'll get to those, but first a more unique sighting, a Fiat 600!The Fiat 600 or Seicento in Italian was the first rear engined Fiat, and was manufactured between the years 1955-1969.This model was also very popular in both Spain (SEAT 600) and Yugoslavia ...

After a week in Rome, it was time for a more relaxed scene, that of Lucca, Italy. What an amazing small town, West of Firenze. While cruising through the countryside on a bike ride, I stumbled across this bright Yellow Fiat 500L (Lusso) that was manufactured between 1968-1972.Check it out, quite the bumble bee look, and an interesting unique touch with the ...

This little blue 1975 Fiat 500 caught my attention on the streets of Paris. You can get an idea of just how small these cars really are when you compare it to the Peugeout behind it, also a compact car by todays standards. Perhaps the old Fiat 500 is actually smaller than a Smart Car.Either this car is getting pushed around on the streets, or the owner likes to weasel ... Check out this car!
Parking is tight in Naples Italy.With that in mind, the Fiat 126 is a perfect city car to squeeze into any parking spaces that you might find.Cool sun roof. A simple canvas flap. Security must have been less of a concern or requirement in the 1970s.The Fiat 126 was introduced in 1972 to replace the super popular Fiat 500 which you find all over Sorrento, and ...

It was during a beautiful summer evening walk in the neighbourhood Prenzlauer Berg in Berlin that I came across this well kept sedan, a 1972 Fiat 125p.This motor vehicle was produced between the years 1967-1991 in Poland by the state-owned manufacturer Fabryka Samochodów Osobowych or FSO for short.Check it out. The gold shade of rims really go nicely with the burgundy ... Check out this car!

Like Berlin, Prague was also a hotbed of endangered cars to take photographs. This is a very cool sporty number that was produced between the years 1964-1973, the Fiat 850. This car appears to be a 1968 model, and is in incredible looking condition. I am positive it has a very proud owner, more about that later. For now, lets take a look at a photo.The front end of ...

Introducing to you this white Zastava 128, spotted in Dubrovnik Croatia!Zastava you ask? The Zastava Automobile company was born in Serbia in the 1950's when a cooperation agreement was signed with Fiat. And so, they essentially began repackaging Fiat cars. The Zastava 128 came from the Fiat 128.This car was in production during the 1970's-1980's. Tough to nail down ... Check out this car!
