Illustration for article titled When You Need A Big, Fast Fiat: 1972 130 Coupe

Most of us Norteamericaños imagine a cheap, zippy 124 or 128 when we think of early-70s Fiats, so the luxurious Fiat 130 coupe appears to come from an alternate universe (in which, perhaps, the Vega and Pinto managed to compete with their Japanese rivals). It packs a snarling 160-horse DOHC V6 under the hood, as befits a car that manages to get away with a red velour interior without looking ridiculous. We'd been meaning to go photograph DSwig's 130 (and maybe talk our way into a drive), but we're too late and now it's up for sale. [eBay Motors]
