Why I Ilke my FIAT
This is just one of those rambling things that I had to put to pen.
About 2 years ago (right about the time I turned 30) I found myself
walking into a supermarket and thinking that the Chevy Impala SS that
I had just passed was a pretty cool car. Just then I realized that I
was talking about a BIG American 4 Door sedan.... ACK! Not long
after that I bought a Alfa 164L because they were almost cheap and
heck it was a pretty cool car. The old 124 Sedan gathered dust for
the next 2 years.
Well any one who knows me, knows that Im not to easy on cars and
about 5 weeks ago I crunched the 164. Not too bad - but I had to
take it off the road for some R&R for a while. I jump into the 72
124 Sedan 1438 push rod and about 200k miles (all
original). It started and ran great. and had done so for about 5000
miles this winter.
WHAT A CAR. Never lets me down. Has a far better heater than any
Alfa I've ever driven. Looks pretty cool (if you use your
imagination). And eveyone I talk to, when Im filling it up for
$8.00, asks "what kinda car is that........ hmmmm a Fiat......who
If nothing else - it slows me down a little.
Ya'll have a great Holiday!!!
