    "A.S.A. 1000. GT" in the text should read ASA 1000GT. (ASA also needs adding to tags).

    "Around the Italian motor show, cars from all over the world" - amongst the models I can fully identify are a Fiat 1500, a Renault 8, an Opel Kadett, a Ford Cortina, a Mazda P360, an Iso Rivolta IR300, a Jaguar E-type, a Mercedes-Benz 300SL, a Maserati 3500GT and a Fiat Abarth 1000.

    Other cars I can't fully identify include a Ferrari, a Lancia and an Alfa Romeo.
