Great Around Town. — Fun little convertible just for the run to the beach or a casual drive. Not the fastest or most comfortable but definitely fun. There are many newer cars that are in the same price range as these but they aren't a Fiat Spider.

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

Pros: Fun little convertible

Cons: No storage and a lack of power for any useful road trips.

Fiat 124 Spyder Review — It was a wonderful machine, but the bodywork was lousy and I had to redo the interior (vinyl) seats because they were made out of defective material. But you see it was pre-emissions so it was eady to work on. I took the valve covers off (it had dual overhead cams). The engine was the same one in a Lancia Beta Scorpion.

Pros: Wonderful engine

Cons: Bad Body work--rusty

Great Entry Level Italian Sportscar — My Fiat 124 spyder was my first car. It came as a project and needed lots of work but eventually was done and painted Ferrari red. They are great looking cars, especially with the early chrome bumpers. With cams, and hi-comp pistons they'll go like crazy. Reliability wasn't too bad, lots of fun.

Pros: Italian design

Cons: Italian sheetmetal
