That's what I'm looking at, but the curves in the middle of the lids (that match the curves of the fenders/wheel wells) match the way the Opels were. I'm not saying it's an Opel, but the headlight lids on the Sonetts were completely flat.
Guess we'll just have to wait and see when he posts the answer.

I'm pretty sure it's not a Sonett III. The Sonett has a grill and the lights are different.

I don't think its a sonnet either. I bet a trabant or what is the czech named...something like that. Scoda.

Specifically, look at the complete lack of a lip on the fenders, look at the grille, no hood scoop, and too much meat in the rear above the main line.

Well, this little bastard fooled me too. I have searched a lot for the exact model and year, but the only thing I found was a FIAT Grand Prix 1967. It could be an early Fiat Dino with flip-up headlights...

And yeah, the parkinglot is full of gay cars... We are in Italy after all.
