I usually don’t reblog, sorry if I disappoint you. But come on, this is Kate Moss literally on top of a Fiat 500 (1958). How could I not?

MGA Twin Cam Coupé (1958)
If you’re thinking “oh my, that’s gorgeous! Why haven’t I seen that before?”, I don’t blame you. It is indeed a gorgeous version of the beloved MGA, but its reliability was appalling, to say the least.
Almost every engine fitted into these broke down, and they usually wouldn’t last half a dozen years without costly maintenance. Very few were sold, so you can probably count the remaining examples of this model by the fingers on your hands.
The Mercedes-Benz Ponton (1958) meets another funny face.
If you know me for more than, say, a couple of hours, you probably already know that Françoise Hardy melts my heart faster than a bar of butter on an exhaust.
Having Hardy on the set of Grand Prix in 1966 must have been heaven. For a french pop singer, she sure seems surprisingly comfortable on the cockpit of Formula 1 cars (or Formula 2 in disguise, but shh, don’t tell.)
Thank you, Frankenheimer.

Fiat advertisement, done right. For decades Fiat knew exactly how to sell tiny, underpowered and cramped cute cars both to men and women of all ages.
I’m thinking about a European Don Draper of Fiat’s marketing department.
Citröen 2CV (1950)
You can keep your women in short bikinis paid for the afternoon to stand next to a muscle-car. I’ll fall in love with these every single living second I breathe.

Oh, the sweet things individually and the sweet things combined!
