i'll admit i'm dead jealous! I love the Thema, i think its such a classy car, looks like you have there the last version of it sold prior to lancia withdrawing from RHD markets & introducing kappa. If i'm thinking right, you got in that car a truly gorgeous 3 spoke leather steering wheel (non airbag) which replaced a rather ordinary looking 4 spoke wheel from the original Thema!

I actually bought my Dedra as i couldn't find a Thema anywhere (4 years ago).

Good luck with her, hope you have many trouble free miles, & if you ever feel like getting rid of it, let me know!!

146, 147, 156, 164, 166, GTV - This is becoming a bit obsessive!

I look forward to seeing more pics., I don't know them that well to know about different steering wheels on the later ones. I like the wooden steering wheels in the Alfas.

That 8.32 steering wheel would be a nice place to be impaled on.
