Eklipze3k's Latest Toy

Bought myself a new toy over the weekend. My phone doesn't really do it justice so will get some better pictures soon.

It's a 1983 FIAT 126 652cc Aircooled, with just shy of 31k on the clock. Not a patch of rust to be seen anywhere and the engine is beautiful. Only things needing looked at are the brakes and the choke, but she starts drives and stops which are the 3 most important things in my book

It's provisionally named SR-71 for now. Drove it back from Strichen yesterday (about 1.5hrs) and couldn't stop smiling the full way, was getting looks from everyone!

Re: Eklipze3k's Latest Toy

Cheers for the positive responses everyone, aye it's awesome fun to drive - was lucky to hit 65 on the way home with it but it feels like it's going faster than it actually is, and the noise is brilliant Steering is very responsive too, only real issue is the brakes being a bit weak ... might upgrade to discs on the front

A bit odd getting used to a 4-spd box though, I gave my bro a quick shot of of it and shouted at him no less than 4 times in less than 1/2 mile "Not to put it into 1st until it's stopped!!"

I hope it's not gone 'fut' at any time in it's life (barring the number plate ofc )

Looking forward to many more miles and many more smiles

Re: Eklipze3k's Latest Toy

Thanks guys. As for plans, I was bidding for this on ebay.de:

But got outbid by 1EUR with mere seconds to go and couldn't add a new bid quick enough

However, one of the guys on CLUB126UK has given me the e-mail address of a chap in Poland who has sent them over in the past, so I could still have one
Other than that, disk brakes on the front are a serious consideration, and a bloody good detailing session is required at some point too
