Nice to see that yellow/crème/cream colored Fiat 131/Brava in the mix. I owned and drove like I stole them many 131's and Bravas from 1975 to 1982 models.
It is a 2000 TC Climatizzata. Runs so well, and well maintained.
Next are Giulietta and a Lancia Montecarlo.

Our two 1981 and 1982 2000cc TwinCam w/Bosch fuel injection in USA were badged as a Brava. The 75- 78 models we had were badged as 131's 1800cc Climatizzata with 32 weber 2-barrel carb. Our 79 model was a Super Brava body style of the 2000 TC but had the Weber progressive 28/32 2 barrel carburetor with no power.

We had a 76 Lancia Scorpion 1800cc (Monte Carlo) modified with 40-80 cams, dual 42 DCNF Webers and Ansa quad exhaust. Was a screamer!

This thread has been quite for several months so I decided to add some photographs of my car. I took these last weekend at the garage where I work. Since our office has been closed for over 2 months, the parking garage has been very empty. I went in to check on it to make sure it is ok and also to go ahead to apply a leather treatment so that they do not dry out. Here are the photos with my red Fiat 500x in the background. It looks like an all-Italian floor at the garage.

How do you like your Fiat 500X?
We like it very much. It is the perfect size for our 4-person family and is comfortable. Reliability wise it has been good as well. I had a radiator fan seize up in early 2019 and it was replaced under warranty. They soon came out with a recall notice so I guess a lot of them started to fail at around the same time. They added a small heat shield to protect the fan motor from heat from the exhaust system. Also it goes completely haywire when the battery fails. It throws all sorts of codes and warning lights. I think most new cars are like that. We purchased ours in 2016 when they first came out. We got the Lounge edition but not with the leather seats. I added a trailer hitch to put a bicycle rack. It is basically a European 5-door hatch back with a high ground clearance.

I went to go visit my cars yesterday, gave them both a cleaning and then took some photographs. The first three are of my LS taken in downtown Dallas at the AT&T Performing Arts Center. The last one shows my Fiat 124 spider back at the garage. I did put the top up before I left in case someone asks. I was driving the Fiat back from the car wash with the top down and decided to go through downtown to get to my office. I ran into a group of protesters and police on my route back. The protesters were on the side walk heading to a park nearby and the police were watching out for them. Both were at respectful distances from each other and there was no violence last night in Dallas. I even got some thumbs up from both the protesters and the officers on my car. Classic cars bringing people together. I love it. Here are the photos and stay safe everyone.

Well, here we go back in VB, VA today. BB1 my 164L w/S engine fired right off after setting for almost 6 months. A/C still works and seems to have good low/high side pressures. Washed it up and took it for a drive
