1984 cabriolet

thought you strada fans may like these pics, sorry for the quality, they were scanned from faded pics

I had the car for about 6 months, about 13 years ago. It was solid and as far as I remember, went to somebody who was enthusiast of strada cabbys, the roof was poor though

it had abarth bumpers, steering wheel, grille/headlights? bonnet had escort cosworth [fake] vents, by its previous owner, I had many people ask me when I had it, if it was a kit car, probably cos they were never seen.

I remember it being quite loud, and very raspy, especially when cold, and having a weird exhaust with 3" oval tailpipe/box of fiat make, middle section went across to the driver side sill almost.

Does it still survive? B233 XAT was the reg

anyway, the pics:

Re: 1984 cabriolet

DVLA shows tax expired in October 1999 so it's probably either in a garage/shed somewhere or crushed for coke cans.
