Automotive artist Russ Wallis fixed this for me with this fabulous picture of 'my' russet brown Dolly wearing it's Sprint Alloys.

More delicious vintage Agip Sint Oil

You may recall I found an unopened bottle of Agip Nuovo Sint 2000 from the early 90s, in Italy, recently? Well I found another unopened bottle of Sint from the early 2000s to add to the other bottle and start a collection.
