I almost made it thru the 1st month of 2018... missed it by THAT much...

I just had to...



My 1st ever car was a FIAT (Fix It Again Tony). Some how, thru the years, I've managed to own..., wow, 4 now!

I know... crazy.

Cool, only just realised I've had 5 of them now! My very first car was a Fiat 500 (wish I still had it) also had a 126, 127 a Mirafiori and a Marea Weekend. Nearly bought a 595 soft top but wife vetoed it (not big enough apparently!) one on the way next year though.

Thank you gents! This was originally made by TCM for the Fiat Football team in a limited edition of 150. It also represents Alfa and Lancia.

What car is that watch attached to?
Currently, this is the wife's car... a 500L in BRG w/a white top. I have to admit, its a kick to drive. My first was a 1959 1100 w/suicide doors (all my buddies loved that!), then a 124, then an X1/9. I'm seriously considering one of the new 124's... they are pretty cool. But then, they also carry Alfa's...!!

Love the distinctive look of that watch! I'm not cool enough to pull it off though.

BTW, how is "I Like em Big" a Fiat guy?!?
Thanx! Oh come on... I think Lou G. could pull off practically ANYTHING!

Right... at least it's pretty hefty in size, 45ish.

A couple more pix... just because:

I can't see the picture at work, so I can't comment, but I will say you should look at the MX-5 if you're considering the 124. I've driven a MX-5 Club and a 124 and the MX-5 is much more engaging. The 124's chassis just doesn't seem as well sorted out as well.

I had a Fiat Coupe. 2 litre turbo'd 20v, fast, pretty, fabulous Pininfarina interior, great sound and surprisingly trouble free for an Italian. Sold it to a friend and now his wife drives it. They still have an active UK forum for it called FCCUK, lol.

Had a friend in school who had a Fiat 500. When I first saw it, mentioned he should have a fire extinguisher on board. He laughed it off.

Sure as hell, Tony caught on fire at a stop light and burned to the ground. Friend was unhurt.

He replaced it with a 124.

Hope that Fiat watch doesn’t have a Lithium cell in it.

Uber cool ... the watch I mean, not sure about the cars ;).
Agree -- +1 for the watch, but offset by 45-year-old memories of the ghastly 850 Spider I owned for a miserable two years...
