Hey Len, did the video want to make you go out and buy another 164?. What year was this episode in?.Does the presenter Chris Goffey know it is ilegal to drink and drive- Re: the glovebox lid in the Lancia is good to store your executive wine , WTF.

What you don't fully appreciate - Mr Cool Dude with the glasses - is that, in my view ( & many others ) , the 164Q is a completely different beast to the vehicle exhibited on that show - but sharing some positive common characteristics.

Perhaps you need to have a spin in one to fully appreciate the sublime characteristics of such a beautifully balanced, great sounding, fully optioned & good looking late model 4 door saloons around !!

Ciao big boy !!
