1973 Fiat 124 Coupe
This '73 was a non-running credit union repo. I saw an ad in
the local paper and went to check it out. I offered $250 for it, if it
would start. They gave me the key and I spent a couple of hours in their parking lot
trying to get it started. After two hours in the hot Florida sun with only a couple
of sputters, I said to it (you have to talk to Italian cars or they won't run right)
"Alright asshole, if you don't start this time you're going to the crusher."
I turned the key and it fired right up and after a few blips of the throttle,
settled down to a smooth idle.
I drove it home the next day.
It ran fine and the body was in good shape, but the black interior
I replace it with a tan interior from another car and painted it Candy Apple Red. It was stunning.
This Ugly Duckling was transformed into this beauty.....
