Re: 500 Restoration

you are to be congratulated 'gazzol' on a superb restoration job. As a young lad, my parents had a Giardiniera' as the family car (mum, dad, 3 boys and quite often my 50inch long model racing yacht!)--this followed as having an original 'Multipla'. When I worked at Radbourne Racing, the works van was the Autobianchi van version (Fiat half owned Autobianchi if I remember correctly and built both veraions of the Giardy as well as the Primula, which eventually became the Fiat 128 and were used by Fiat for short, pre-model develoment runs). The Radbourne van had a '650' conversion on it and was on record one day of traversing the Marylebone flyover, 2-up with an engine in the back at just over 70mph!!--2 question; how much of the original car has been retained and where abouts in the Uk are you?--keep up the good work, it is an inspiration
