    This is beautiful! I love the 71 124 Sport Coupe. A 124 Sport Coupe is one of my favorite cars I never owned. I put a deposit on one, but the owner changed his mind when I went to pick it up. Really disappointed. How long have you owned it?

    Nice! Maybe when the new 124 comes out you can buy it and have a matched pair of sorts!

    Makes me want a Fiat 124 project car ...

    I think it would hit the "classic" chord better than an X 1/9.. how is affordability?

    The thing to do with that car when it was new was "desmog" it and return it back to European specs. European cars were like 112 - 125 hp + stock. Add some mods, maybe a 1800 or even 2 liter and you had even more. I'd take this over a 1600 - 2002 BMW or Capri any day. The key to making a Fiat run great was to return it to European specs - apologies to the environmentalist - but the cars back then ran terribly.

    Thanks for the comments everyone. I've had this particular car for about 15 years and have owned 3 different coupes over the last 30 years. The cars are actually pretty reliable as long as you keep up on the maintenance. ie: timing belt, guibo, plugs...The cars are really easy to work on too, so that's not a problem. I want to keep it as stock as possible so it generally is except for the distributor. Changed out the dual points to an electronic one from a later model Spider. More reliable that way. I also went as far as putting an original 1600cc motor back as the previous owner had stuck in an 1800. I like the 1600, it revs better While these wheels never came on the Coupes, they are more or less period correct Campangolo's so they provide an original look. Since it's a 1971 car there were no smog devises to contend with like the 73-74 onward cars. Would be nice to get the euro dual carb set up though.

    Affordability on these cars is pretty good. The biggest issue if one decided to pick one up would be the purchase. A good minimal rust west coast car would probably be between $7000-$10, 000 these days depending on condition. But to find one that hasn't been modified and chopped up or otherwise played with is getting harder and harder. My advice would be to find one with the best interior and exterior you can. Those bits and pieces can get expensive if you can even find them. Good luck finding a dash for instance. The good news is that the mechanicals are shared with the Spiders, so parts are easy to find and relatively cheap. Overall fun value for price is very good. Plus be prepared for lots of thumbs up and questions and comments at stop lights. You just don't see them on the road anymore. In my opinion these are in the top 5 best offerings Fiat ever produced
