In the 1950s, my Father imported and sold Fiats, I have previously blogged about it here-
He sponsored a road racing version of their sports car, and one Sunday, he took my Brothers and me to watch a race.
The sports car was named the “Spyder”, we are sitting on the roof of one watching the race.
The “Abarth” was the racing version.
Here is another pic of the Spyder, decked out for my 1960 Grade School picnic-
