Back to the eighties - Regatta Weekend

I simply couldn't resist buying one of the few Regattas still alive in Sweden. This sample also happened to be a weekend model, pimped up with electric windows and sun roof, turning in to a "Riviera".
This is one of the few old Fiats in Sweden which has been taken care of by the owner, while still being used as everyday car (1988, 238000 km). It was my duty to take care of it.
Despite my newly purchased Haynes book, I'm sure I'll have questions to post here.

Hi, and welcome to the FF and good luck preserving that Regatta. Nice to hear there are FIATs in the land of SAAB and Volvo...

Congratulations. My dad owned a Regata 100S Weekend for 15 years. It was a good reliable car, the fold down tailgate was an excellent idea.

Re: Back to the eighties - Regatta Weekend

It it a 90s i.e, which is the 100s i.e. equipped with a catalytic converter, thereby reducing the output to a modest 90 cv. I'll try to post some pictures shortly.

Looks nice! What engine does it have? 1500 or the bigger engine (I think it could be had with a 2.0 litre)? Oh, and are those 13" Uno turbo alloys? If they're 14" they're Strada Abarth wheels

Any more pictures? Would love to see the inside and the dashboard
