Thanks Michael, but my Punto was a 'fresh out of the box' 2016 model when I got it in January. The tip is helpful though as I had considered an early Punto as a project (one of the first and one of the last!).

Incidently, you mentioned your Strada was a 65CL. My dad's was too. A silver 3-door with period aftermarket Wolfrace alloy wheels (they were on it when he bought it). It looked really smart. Shame he part exchanged it some years later for Mk3 Ford Escort (that turned out to be one of the most unreliable cars he has ever had and it didn't last long...)

When you say departed, you don't mean scrapped, do you?

I expect many were scrapped eventually (!) and our daughter who now has the 2003 Punto in London is doing her best to dent every panel...! To be fair the last gouge along the passenger side was caused by someone driving the wrong way down a 1 way street and then not stopping!

Re: How many Fiats have you had?

I guessed the 90s Fiats will have been scrapped sadly. I was thinking more about that Punto and the 159, lol!

Re: How many Fiats have you had?

I can claim the following in order of purchase between my wife and me:
1981 Panda 45
1983 X1/9
1984 Panda 45S
1985 Uno 55S
1985 Uno 70SX
1987 Panda CLX
1989 Uno 60S
1990 Tipo 1.6 DGT
1992 Tipo 1.4 Formula
1993 Tipo 1.9 TdSX
1994 Punto 1.2 S
1994 Punto Sporting
1995 Punto 1.6 ELX
1997 Alfa 145 2.0 Cloverleaf
1998 Punto 1.2 SX
2001 Barchetta *
2002 Alfa 156 2.0 Lusso
2006 Alfa GT 1.9 diesel
2006 Idea 1.3 diesel

Also I learned to drive on my mother's 1968 Fiat 850 saloon and shared the use of her 1973 127 Super until I left home.

Wonder what all this makes me?
