We have treated you to some icy Friday ladies in snowy surroundings in the past few weeks. And why not continue this theme? So, here again, a classic showing two classy girls (and a man, okay) in what can only be described as a hell of a great period picture. Yes, the car dates to the earliest of 1970s - which is kind of late for what you may have been used to here - but we simply could not withhold this one. That’s a Fiat 128 Coupe in rare nausea green metallic, very much in fashion at the skiing track. Also note the double round headlights in satin black recesses, that groovy square nose and swooping coke bottle line at the back. And then those sunglasses and headwear!
But… the question is again: where was this grand shot taken? We’ve seen the French (Update: not France, shame on us) chic of Sestriere here and the Zcech elegance of Šerlišský’s here. But this one seems more difficult to pin down. Could it be Italy? Who recognizes the venue?

Congratulation Australians. It’s your day today! The governmental description: “On Australia Day we come together as a nation to celebrate what's great about Australia and being Australian. It's the day to reflect on what we have achieved and what we can be proud of in our great nation.” Excuse us, but it also made us think again of the chap, who became world famous for giving ‘The Most Aussie Interview Ever’ in November last year.
But what better way to celebrate the festivities with a tribute to the Holden EH here? With no doubt one of the most-loved Holdens of all time and the first to use the infamous ‘red’ engine; smoother and more powerful than its predecessors. With a combination of affordability, good looks and power, the EH ticked all the boxes for over 250,000 Aussies. Oh, and you know it’s summer out there, hence the sunny image…

Looking ahead to Rétromobile, we wanted to make you aware of a little car that will be on exhibit there and that may deserve an introduction. It’s the unique Chausson CHS that was sold as a project car at Silverstone auctions a couple of years ago, together with plenty of spares and boxes full of history, including all of the blueprints and manufacturing details. Its story is fascinating, being conceived by Chausson, a manufacturer of radiators and steel body panels annex coachbuilder based in Asnières-sur-Seine. But it ended up in the UK early in its life, when engineer Tom Delaney brought it over. Delaney had some very serious plans with it, but they all led to nothing. He did keep it for decades and the car only returned to its native France after the auction sale. The miniature four-wheeler is now resplendid in its former glory and albeit tiny, we think it will be one of the great stars of the show. Read more on Rétromobile’s own write-up about the car.
