1976 FIAT 124 Spyder
Bought in February, 2005, the fouth owner. The car had been sitting in a garage for 6-7 years and only driven a couple of times. When I got to it, the engine wouldn't even turn over. So....I bought it for $250 and got to work.
The October, 2007 FLOSTL Rally
You could not have asked for a better day, 75°, not a cloud in the sky, and just a light breeze from the FIAT Gods. We all showed up at Rick Wilson's home in Chesterfield about 12:00 p.m. and began by getting stories on each car:
***Rick Wilson's 1973 Fiat 124 Spyder was bought in Bloomington, IL from the chaplain of Illinois St. University...Plans are to have the engine rebuilt and get the body/paint done.
***Alan Taxman's 1976 Fiat 124 Spyder was bought from a guy who had it in his garage for almost 7 years for $250...a lot of elbow grease in the past two years, not sure yet about body/paint or selling/trading for an X1/9.
***Jim Decker's 1978 Fiat X1/9 was bought from an individual in CA and shipped back to St. Peters, MO...car is in great original shape!
***Jim Decker's (Driven by Chris Schaeffer) 1986 Fiat X1/9 SURE LOOKED GREAT, an excellent example of what the X1/9 is all about!
***Jeremy Blanton's 1976 Fiat 124 Spyder just got in from PA, lots of work planned, he may have started as soon as he got home!
Rick came up with a great route through the countryside, down through St. Alban's, up through Washington, east through Augusta, and then homeward bound. Happy to report that there were no breakdowns, and everyone had a wonderful time! Thank you to all that participated and all that couldn't be there.....WHAT A GREAT TIME!
What is next?
