“I ran the family newsstand for 40 years with my wife. When I opened the business, I was happy to have a Lancia Fulvia parked in front of me, I used to unload the newspapers from the trunk and put them on the counter.” Mr. Fregolent shared.
After nearly five decades, town officials decided to relocate the old Lancia because it obstructed traffic and pedestrians. On October 20, the car was brought to the Auto e Moto d’Epoca auto show in Padua for a short time to display along with other classic cars, Virgilio Motori news.
