Weekend Quickies, Saturday, August 28, 2010

1962 Lancia Appia Vignale - The Lanica Appia Vignale is a very cool car. According to Vignale.org, just 1584 were built. Like all older Lancias, it was well built, well engineered and fun to drive.

This Lancia is very cool for another reason, too. The seller writes that it was "just shown at the Concorso Italiano in California and was driven back to Oregon". You've got to admire an owner who actually drives his classic car and a classic car that can make that kind of trip.

1975 Zastava 750 (Fica) - Wow. This car is in the US. This is a Fiat 600 built by Zastava, the very same company that gave us the Yugo.

The 750 / Fica is not a carbon copy of the car it's based on. The body is slightly different as is the engine.

I doubt there are many other Zastava 750s here in the US. This car would get all sorts of attention at just about any car show.

1952 Singer 4AD Roadster - Are you looking for a project? Do you have a lot of free time? Do you find hunting down rare and obscure parts fun? If so, this car is for you.

Singer built these cars primarily for export. But, unlike the MG T series, which put MG on the map in the US (and elsewhere), the Singer was not very successful and by 1956 Singer was absorbed by the Rootes Group. Subsequent Singer cars were just badge engineered versions of existing Rootes products.

This car needs a complete restoration, but the the body doesn't look too bad and the seller says most of the parts are there.
