Cohort Pic(k)s of the Day: Two Veterans of the ’50s Import Boom and a Lot More Somewhere in Abilene, Texas

Don Kincl found a very wide assortment of cars somewhere in Abilene, TX, including two rather rare veterans of the 1950s import boom: a Fiat 1100 and a Renault Dauphine. The Fiat looks like it might even be roadworthy. And there’s some other interesting inmates here too…

Another look at the Fiat. These were absolutely everywhere in Austria when I was a kid. Of course they were assembled in Austria by Steyr-Puch, but the 1100 was a big success for Fiat. Well, except in the US.
