Fiat 124 Vignale Eveline ... la Bucuresti

In filmul "Din nou impreuna" (1978), se gaseste un superb Fiat 124 carosat special de Vignale si vandut, in perioada 1968-9, in circa 150 de exemplare sub numere "Vignale Eveline". Masina, inmatriculata cu numarul 1-B-7974, apare in o secventa de cateva secunde si nu are niciun rol in film. Totusi, reprezinta o mare raritate.

32 ani mai tarziu, o masina similara (presupunem ca e aceeasi - sansele saexiste doua in Bucuresti sunt minime) se gaseste in Bucuresti si poze sunt postate pe forumul Fiat. Bogdan Coconoiu de la Automobilia scrie ca este "o raritate, din pacare a fost tamponata, n-are masca, bara, farurile si reparatia e de porc, piese pt asa ceva nu gasesti nici in 50 de ani, plus ca e primita cadou, proprietarul e mort (un fost cantaret de opera sau ceva de genul asta) iar detinatorii viseaza frumos. " Si cu cateva luni mai tarziu povestea se termina la REMAT-ul Jilava. Mare pacat, mai ales ca fata de asa piesa, Jaguar sau Ferrari din anii 60 sunt pe fiecare colt de strada.

In the film "Together again" (1978) we can see a Fiat 124 rebodied by Vignale and sold, between 1968 and 1969, in about 150 examples under the name "Vignale Eveline". The car, registered 1-B-7974, appears in a couple of seconds' worth of footage and plays no role in the film.

32 years later, a similar car (we can assume it's the same: to have two such vehicles in Bucharest stretches the imagination) crops up in Bucharest and is photographed on the Fiat forum. Bogdan Coconoiu (of Automobilia) says it is "a rarity, but sadly it was involved in an accident and badly repaired with non-original headlights, grille, and bumper; you can't find pieces for this kind of car ... it was a present from the deceased former owner (an opera singer or suchlike) and the current owners think it's more valuable than it is". And some months later, its story finishes in the Jilava scrapyard. A real shame, especially because, compared to this, a Sixties Jag or Ferrari is on every street corner...

  1. Exemplarul din film are stopuri mai mari (gen Lada1500), iar cel de pe strada unele mai inguste, tip Fiat124/Lada1200.

  2. Cred ca mai apare una tot portocalie in filmul romanesc "Trecatoarele iubiri". Sa nu fie doar Fiat 124 sport coupe. Masina apare intr-o secventa pe la jumatatea filmului, in mers, pe B-dul Magheru in paralel cu un Mercedes negru "coada de randunica".
