I feel like I could have written this paragraph(not really but...) its how I think/describe the car.

"...the front-end of the FIAT 124 Spider encapsulates the essence of its classic predecessor in a modern and bold package – broad and muscular but also elegant and perfectly proportioned. The profile view is pure classic roadster, with its long wheelbase, a cockpit hunkered low near the driven rear axle and a long bonnet, all tied elegantly together by a horizontal line that emerges from the front wing, kicking up over the rear haunch and flowing toward the tail lamp, aping the distinctive bodywork of the original FIAT 124 Spider..."

Good Press Release/Article to reminisce on...
81878




I'm sure its OLD news to most but fun to read. Such big plans...

Have a great Monday!

I'm with Brexit, I have not seen that before. Thank you for sharing. I'm still learning about these wonderful little drop-tops.

I guess June 7th (1996) will soon be a Spider Memorial Day every year...or it should be. :cry:
