A mellow yellow Polski Fiat 126P, Spotted in China in the Beijing Tuning Street. The fine Fiat was sadly in a sorry shape, dusty and dirty, with paint fading away, with parts missing, and with deflated tires. Still, the mere fact that it stood there on the Street almost has to mean that somebody wants it restored, so we might see her back on the road again sometime in the future.

A beautiful red Fiat Barchetta, Spotted in China near the Dashanzi area in northeast Beijing. The Little Boat was in a very good shape; the paint looked fresh, no rust or rot, nothing broken or missing, and everything original up until the six-spoke alloys. License plate of Jiangsu Province.

A very feisty Fiat Coupe, Spotted in China on a car market in the faraway suburbs outside the eastern section of the Fifth Ring Road in Beijing. The sporty Fiat is painted in gray and further fracked up with darkened windows and a kinky white pillow just below the headrest of the driver’s seat. This kinda rests are common in China where drivers are often of a smaller size than elsewhere, and the head just doesn’t make it high enough.

A beautiful dark blue Fiat Uno 70S, Spotted in China on a car market near the Fifth Ring Road in east Beijing. The good Uno was sadly in a rather sad condition. Covered with layers of dust and dirt, bumpers falling off, some rust here and there, deflated tires, and looking just very lonely. The original Fiat Uno was manufactured from 1983 until 1995 with a major facelift in 1989, this is a facelifted example.

A silver gray Fiat Croma 2.0 16V, Spotted in China just outside the Third Ring Road in east Beijing. The good vehicle was in a surprisingly good shape.

The Croma was manufactured from 1985 until 1996 with a facelift in 1991, this is a facelifted car.

A very rare Polski Fiat 126P, Spotted in China in central Beijing. The poor vehicle looked abandoned and forgotten, with rust all over and covered with years of dust and dirt. Happily however, the car stood on piles of stones, so the suspension should be all right…

A fantastic Alfa Romeo 166, Spotted in China in the Beijing Tuning Street, looking absolutely stunning in Alfa Red. As it happens, I was just there when the vehicle arrived, its beautiful lines playing with the early summer sun. And out came a Chinese man looking so incredible extremely utterly cool, wearing black trousers an all, that I almost disappeared.
