I had one of those in the late 80's. What a great looking, fun to drive little car! I took out the cranky Abarth engine (the head had been milled down to nothing, and I didn't want to put miles on it), and replaced it with a 903 I rebuilt. I took it racing a few times and had a blast passing the big dogs in the twisties, and watching them blow my doors off on the straights.

God, what a fun little car. Wish I'd never let it go.
