Heavy, — The fiat has been nicknamed "fix it again tony", well the fuel pump needed replacing right off the bat. Ran pretty good, except the brake calipers were sticking such that when I pulled up they were glowing red hot and I lit a cigarette on one of the rotors. Welding a new floor in seemed like a good idea at the time, but the spacing on the seat rails were critical, and adjusting the seats afterwards took a hammer. All the underneath extra steel made it HEAVY then. We have winters in Wisconsin and really could not use it much of the year. Fun project car for a teenager,

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Sporty convertible with wooden steeringwheel.

Cons: The rust in Wisconsin had eaten up the entire underbelly spent all summer welding in a new floor.

Loved It Anyway. — This was my first car. It was grossly underpowered yet fun to drive. It handled really well and was lots of fun to drive. It was inexpensive since I bought it used and these cars dropped value like a rock on the used car market mostly because they rusted out. I sold mine before it started to show signs of rust.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Inexpensive fun!

Cons: Getting passed by joggers!  0-60 could be in minutes!

Hell yes!!!!

Pros: 903cc engine
