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...
