The last couple of models to have been showcased here have depicted European stuff, which is a bit of an oversight when I consider that Hooniverse radiates its digital rays from North America, perhaps it’s time to redress the balance. From an Italian car which hides its cultured high-revving horsepower beneath a designer suit, let’s look at a blue-collar legend relying on cubes and brute force for motivation. Also one of my favourite cars, as it happens.
It’s one of my favourite models, too. And unlike recent posts (where I admit to a slight eBay addiction that, seriously, needs to be curtailed), this one has been in my possession for something like twenty years. I vividly remember cycling five miles to a toy shop in the next town which sold a few models alongside buckets and spades and other seaside ephemera. I’m pretty sure I paid well over the odds. Who cares. Let’s take a closer look, and as before, click to massivate.
