1971 FIAT 124 SpiderReview
1971 Fiat Spider125 — it was a little red car with a .9 ltr 4 cyl engine if you can call it that. i was like a hopped up lawn mower engine. but it was rear wheel drive and did burnouts that was the first car i ever drifted in it was quick but not fast if you get that it was a manual shift car and reverse was pretty hard to find
Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)
Cons: didnt go that fast and it was hard to find parts
