I did eventually own a 156 v6 IN nuvola blue, around 2005, and spotted that exact car I owned shortly after getting the 146.gif

I couldn't resist parking in front of it for a group picture...u


I owned a 166 in nuvola blue for all of three days. I picked it up as a parts car for my 166, as it had a leather interior and a Ragazzon s/s exhaust (still visible in the pic below)

.

It was being sold as a non-runner as the tie rod on the rear suspension had failed; for the sake of a 25 second-hand spare I got it home for the princely sum of 150, then spent the weekend swapping over the interiors and exhausts before selling on the blue car the following week for the princely sum of 1.

The Ragazzon sounds great - and it was amazing how much lighter it was than the standard system.

All told, 149 for the leather plus exhaust was a total bargain...

The nuvola blue did look great on the 166 - but the car itself, being a 2.5, was neither Arthur nor Martha...
