YAK Car Pic of the Day

78 fiat ritmo cl  Chewing Gum

Okay, so today’s post has taken a weird turn. I fully intended to post a pic from a movie we watched (again!) over the weekend: Big Deal on Madonna Street. It was a hilarious 1958 bungled-caper movie which stars Marcello Mastroianni as a member of a rag-tag gang of would-be thieves. It being an Italian movie and all, of course there were some interesting little cars in the background, but none of the shots were really good enough to reproduce here. But I wanted you to know about this movie. See it if you can — they show it from time-to-time on TCM, and it’s also available from Netflix. But here’s a strange-looking 1978 Fiat Ritmo CL from another Italian movie, 1984’s Chewing Gum. Which I know nothing about starring no one I’ve ever heard of.
