    Excellent review of Fiat 124 Spider



    The higher torque at lower rpms sell me on this car.

    Looking for comments.

    I bet the Miata aftermarket like Flyin Miata and others are considering a whole new customer base for performance upgrades. Turbo Abarth? V8 Abarth?

    Ditto! I really like that blue but it's only a limited addition color.

    I think a better "Idea" would be to find an old 124, and drop in an NC engine, F&R suspension and running gear. I know there is no curb appeal but it could be a fast Italian 'sportsa' spyder.

    Saw an episode of Fantomworks where they were working on his and hers cars. His - Sunbeam Tiger, Hers - Fiat 124 Spider. The sub frame on the Fiat had cracks in it. They had to replace the whole subframe.
