Everyone thinks that their nation taxes them the most but it is fair to say that the Italians get it pretty bad. Case in point is the cigarette lighter which was subject to its own tax back when it was new. To prove that the tax was paid, a little paper tag was affixed to the lighter. These tags were almost immediately removed leaving very few cars with them still today.
In an effort to present the car as it would have been delivered we affixed our own perfect reproduction. Over 40 years on we are not expecting to be hunted down by the Italian tax authorities and thought it a nice detail in the interior of the car.
