* Here in the States, the DeTomaso name conjures up images of the Pantera, so it should come as a surprise to many Americans that another DeTomaso product, the DeTomaso Nuevo Innocenti, was based on first the Mini, then on the Daihatsu Charade. RetroScene Mag has more.
* Recall from our recent SIA Flashback on the early history of Jaguar that the company started out building Swallow bodies for the Austin Seven.
