There are cars that are appreciated from day one of their lives, and there are cars that we take for granted until we realize they're all gone. This is the B scenario.


They made over 1.2 million Autobianchi A112s less than 700 miles from where I live between 1969 and 1986, still, finding a mostly sorted original car from the average of three for sale in the country is a tough call. Where did they all go? I guess nobody cared for them, and most were taken care by rust and racing.

It the United Kingdom, some British Leyland cars are completely gone. For a good reason of course, but even cars that could become nice classics can end up in the melting pot before enthusiast would realize their true potential.
