Re: Welcome to the Cool Wall: How to get cars added...

The poor old Fiat 127 is always overlooked! Car of the Year winner, the first supermini, sold 4.5 million including Seat production, ford bought 9 when trying to work out how to create the mk1 Fiesta (look at the shape!), and out handles a Mini (as 3 journalists have told me)! What else, the 1050 will still be accelerating when the needle falls off the end of the clock (100mph), even with 5 up and a boot full of cricket kit. It still drives like a modern car, and a mk2 1050 doesn't feel anywhere near 40 years old - sounds great and will embarrass a lot of modern traffic.

Fiat X1/9











This is not about rust, reliability or blindly buying a car so bodged together you sell for a £1,500 loss nine months later. The X1/9 was penned by Bertone in 1969 but was too cool for British Leyland. In Fiat hands and combined with the power plant from the legendary 128 the X1/9 soon became one of the best selling sports cars ever made and to this day one of the best handling cars money can buy.
Some of the cars Fiat made since have been cool but this is the yardstick.

Re: Welcome to the Cool Wall: Lets add more cars!

I think we could do a few more fiats first, not many up there yet.. But then yes, we'll open it up to all marques.

Re: Welcome to the Cool Wall: Lets add more cars!

Hmmm. How about the Fiat 850 Spider, and the Classic 500?

Re: Welcome to the Cool Wall: Lets add more cars!

Following the 850 Spider how about the spiritual successor the Barchetta?

Left hand drive only.
Modular platform so mechanical parts are easy to get hold of.
Gorgeous styling, a fusion of modern and contemporary that actually works and has lasted.
Good specification.
The best of the 128 gen III's Fiat ever made.
More than a Punto HGT in a pretty dress the best convertible Top Gear drove across a desert.
The same designer went on to pen the Alfa Romeo 8C, Mito and 4C
