The Firenza was made famous by the late Gerry Marshall during the '70's, a real monster beast, nice car.

That was 'Big Bertha' a big V8 muscle car not really related to the humble 2300 slant four.

I had a firenza many moons ago in a nice bronze colour.

From the outside looking at the car, Big Bertha and Firenza have the same look does it?
