It's worth buying the magazine to determine, once and for all, which model is the ultimate Coupe. From a professional and unbiased source..... wink

I haven't picked it up from her yet, but my daughter managed to get me a copy of it today cool

She made an effort too, as she said it took her ages to find it, as in the end, it was hidden behind loads of other mags and it was the last one too.

Obviously a professional and unbiased source, though I note he didn't use the descriptor "ultimate", Neil tongue

Excellent article and a good overall magazine. Well done folks on giving such a great impression of the marque/club thumb . No green ones though.... frown

Even had an Alfa Spider write-up which I found interesting as a new owner laugh !

Just got my copy in the mailbox. Thank you Hovedan! It's not an in-depth review of the Fiat Coupe - and probably all the better for it. It's a charming overview of the Fiat Coupe range and a splendid piece of advertising for our 'little' club here. Enjoyed it! Ooooh and saving the article about Mefistofele for this evening. smile

Back to work.

That's exactly how the feature was supposed to be, so they've obviously done a good job smile

Well - 10 year thread resurrection laugh

Got the back issue a few days ago and the featured coupes - where are they now?

MKZ 3426 - still alive and kicking smile
K2OUP - now an Audi but coupe could have gone back to original plate?
CFC213Y - now a BMW but ditto above
N96LAP - was alive and kicking until January this year.
N100ODD - still with us smile
N707GLF - was with us until October last year. Time to get your sleeves rolled up Neil wink

There's seven featured but can't make out the final registration. Is it yours Pete?

Anyway after 10 years not a bad tally and a credit to real enthusiasts thumb
