Hi everyone, I'm introducing myself - Paul, based near Manchester (North West England, UK). Finally got around to joining a 124 Forum. I owned and drove a manual Red Classica Fiat 124 for 10 months, until July 2019. As daily driver the car was fantastic. But I was really always looking out for a manual shift Abarth 124. But as new, only auto shift models or demonstrators were available through the dealers, before FCA withdrew 124's from the UK market. Then 3 months ago, I found a used 20 month old Abarth 124, manual, in grey, with only 7600 miles, in immaculate condition. After an amazing extended test drive in the Pennine hills near Manchester ….. I upgraded to the Abarth ….. what's not to like !!!! Sorry to be a bit late getting on board, but thanks, I am finding this Forum to be really helpful.
