Why you want to buy it? The last one I sold went for 1750.

Re: Strada Abarth 130TC

Yeah it's a good car, was great actually being able to drive it after some years off the road! It's much better to drive than B366RLM which was apparently a good car, this one isn't down at the back, not that that was a major issue, just had the wrong shocks on the rear and the leaf spring was a bit soft. Now to decide what to do with this one. I've kind of got into track days and after taking the saxo out I want something with some real grunt. The Strada is a bit too difficult to cheaply find replacement parts to really hammer round the track and would struggle at the top end like the Saxo. I'm thinking Fiat Coupe Turbo might be worth a try.

Thanks for the offer but the Saxo has that one whipped anyway. I was offered a 205 GTI in good condition, years MOT and tax for 250. Why I turned it down I don't know.

Quite fancy an MG Turbo but they're not that fast really, probably not much up on the Saxo but wouldn't handle as well and rust like buggers. My frst 2 cars were Metros, a MG which I rejetted, chucked a K&N on and fitted a Peco with the help of my Uncle and it really made it fly. Had the measure of the larger capacity XR2i with a few cheap simple mods. My Uncle did a great job of getting it running really sweat. I really was quite surprise the difference! Still fond of those little Metros.

Car still available. Maybe now is the time to dip your toe with the ultimate 80s hot hatch.

My car has now been sold. After years of owning it time had come to do something else.

If it's a rusty door opening then it means you've bought another old Fiat!
