That's it you've completely ruined my weekend.

First, the forumers are having a bash tomorrow without me.

Second, my Panda is still off the road and Penny wants her car back.

Third, some smart-ass has the one car I've been looking for all my life. You cad, sir! ;)

I just love the colour. It almost matches the colour I'm "feeling" right now. And I'll bet it's rust free too, right?

I sold my 124 Special Automatic (in Olive Green) back in March 1980 (and bought a BMW 2002). The new owner of the Fiat made a tidy £100 profit by part-exchanging it for a new L**a 9 months later.

So your photo is now my current PC Wallpaper, and I'll bet the majority of my cow-orkers don't know what it is ...

Steve, if you come out to California I'll let you take her for a spin! It has an 1800 Spider motor with a low rear end. The car scoots along just fine. Oh, and to improve your weekend just a little -> the sedan does have a little surface rust, but nothing to chronic though.

The wheels are off a Lancia Scorpion. However, the front bumper is off of a CC Coupe. The plan is to remove both bumpers and replace them with custom tube bumpers.

You can see the progress pics here: http://www.sonic.net/randyw/fiat124sedan/index.htm

Best,

Thanks Randy.

You just could not believe the amount of rust that was on on my old 124 (registered UVL 616M if anyone is interested in such things). I loved it and was very sad to see it go, but the BMW 2002 which replaced it was an offer too good to miss. I still miss it, particularly as the BMW was even more rotten than the Fiat ...

I bought it in Grimsby (my home town), which is on the north-east coast of good olde Lincolnshire, England. This Fiat garage was less than half a mile from the sea front (Cleethorpes, next door) so you can imagine the amount of salt spray attacking every single car ...

Any unprotected Fiat didn't last very long ...
