    @Dario
    Very few examples Dario. italian cars never had expression in Vietnam; on the other hand they sold well in Thailand, Singapore and Malasya, mainly fiat and alfa romeo in the seventies and eigthies. In that time fiat have an assembly plant in Thailand and Malasya and many examples of the 1500, 132, 128, 131, some lancias beta coupés and alfa giulia, alfasud and alfetta were assembled and even exported to Hong kong, Australia and new zealand. Nowdays Italian cars are all imported with high tax at high prices.
