1986 FIAT X1/9Review
Fiat Bertone X1/9 Is Awesome — the car isnt by any means fast, being 75 horse power, but it handles fantastic because it is mid engine and very low to the ground. it is doesnt break down often, but parts are difficult to get a hold of. it is a really fun car to drive! get one!
Pros: handles very good, targa top (removeable hard top), power windows, manual!
Cons: slow, problems with reverse and 3rd gear, no power steering or power breaks

Consider It If You Want Great Handling In A Cheap Car And Can Overlook The Very Small Flaws.
I have only test driven this car, but I tried to inventory as I was driving all of the good qualities and flaws in the car. The steering is surprisingly light considering the lack of power steering. T... Read More
