All Italian, All The Time — The 124 Spider is a beautiful, nicely appointed sports car with wonderful Italian flair, decent performance, a terrific exhaust note and better reliability than Fiat gets credit for

Pros: Beauty, nice engine, smooth predictable handling

Cons: Rust, electrical bits, cheap materials

Owned It Since 1977 And It Has Been A Fun, Reliable Car. — I am looking for a professional to help me restore a 1978 124 spider in the NC/SC area.

Owner for 20 years, 0 months

Miles Driven per Year:1,000

Pros: Convertible, straight drive (five gears), wide profile, not an MG

Cons: Original paint job was crappy, tough to add a good sound system.
