Re: Classic FIAT section

Ok trying to move on with this - if we rename "FIAT Cars" to "FIAT Cars (Modern)"

Then create a "FIAT Cars (Classics)" underneath, which has a "General" section for all round classics chat, then the models categorised seperately underneath?

So does an old Panda go in classics? And what about old Bravo etc ... how do we define that area? Pre 1980 = Classic?

Re: Classic FIAT section

Whether or not a car is a classic cannot be defined just by the age of the car. Not everyone will agree that a car is a classic either. Small Fiats achieve classic status quickly, larger Fiats don't. Is the Fiat Regatta a classic or just an old car? The Bravo isn't a classic, it's a modern car as is the Tipo. The Panda has a case for being a classic, increasingly so does the Cinquecento, the Seicento doesn't. What about the Uno? I'd consider the Mk1 and Turbo models to be getting there but the Mk2 is just an old car. It'll be impossible to get everyone to agree on what is classic and what isn't.

Re: Classic FIAT section

So shall we ignore this and just create the models as their own forums like the current ones ... in theory it's a lot easier to find?

Re: Classic FIAT section

I suggested three categories ages ago.

Production Models
Non-Production Models
Classics

I reckon that would cover it.

Re: Classic FIAT section

pre 1980 for the classics?

that would enable the panda (mk1), unos, tipo, to be in the non production section

move the x1/9 to the classics section?
