Surprisingly, I considered getting a Fiat X1/9 instead of the SA I have today but I
had a roommate with an 850 Spider and got see Fix It Again Tony up close and personal.

The TR8 would be cool. All that HP in a small car.

I remember the 80s. Back when cars were cars.

And I liked that mid engine Fiat X1/9 for sure, every bit as pretty as the SA plus Italian sexy.

Got those waffle wheels too.



On a nostalgic note, I drove a 78 MGB for 10 years in the 90s until finding salvation in the FB in 2001.

Ive got a buddy over this way that is a mid engine fanatic. He has a couple of X 1/9s, two MR2s, a trio of fieros and a couple of kit cars built on Fiero chassis. All of them are amazing.
