Daniele Spataro had an insatiable desire for digging up barn finds. With so many vintage cars to be found on his native island of Sicily, Spataro had his pick of the litter from all sorts of classic Fiats, Alfa Romeos, and other classic Italian and European autos of the era. While his first find was a Fiat 100 Turismo Veloce, which required some serious work for the 18 year old Spataro. But his favorite was a near mint condition ’53 Fiat 1100 Vignale with barely 5000 miles on the odometer. Only twelve of these particular cars were ever produced, so the Sicilian collector cherishes this model above all of the others he has acquired.
