Got Pasta? was starting to derail the Lancia Stratos thread and i have lots of photos, so why not? im pretty sure there are more ADVriders than me that enjoy the Italians. probably a few good stories involved with them to. it all started for me with this one: '79 FIAT 131 Brava View attachment 1129818 sorry for the poor quality photo, this was shot back in the late '80s. I didnt even know this car was italian when i bought it, it was the cheapest car on a used car lot and i didnt have much money. i test drove it and was pleasantly surprised and $800 later it was mine. didnt realize at the time that FIAT had completely left the USA market and that there was literally no official parts network or anything. this, before internet but as it turned out, a neat underground network of FixItAgainTonys was in the making. some of the former FIAT dealers had auctioned off entire parts inventories for nearly nothing, parts were hard to come by so a local club developed a newsletter and left it at various mechanics shops for other stray FIAT owners to find. I had no clue that FIAT was also court ordered to buy back their last cars sold in the USA but went on to learn alot more than that about them and other Italians. I'll share some of that here as I can if there is much interest. now onto the good stuff: View attachment 1129819 shot this one at Road Atlanta in 2001 or 2 IIRC share whatcha got here. nothing is off limits so long as its italian.
