    1972 124 B-Coupe, one of the best (pics)

    This is the car my Dad and I have been modding for a decade plus...
    It's one of the nicest in the country, and in true "Abarth" form, tuned to the hilt, with nothing left untouched. You can drive this car up the California coast, enter Concurso Italiano, get a ribbon, drive it to an auto-cross the same afternoon, get 2nd place over RUF Porsches, Vettes and BMW's, and then drive it back down the coast to so cal the next day.
    No one tunes carbs as well as my Pop...

    The Fiat 124 Sport Coupe - one of the great cars of the 70s. I've owned a bunch of Fiats, but never a sport coupe. If I had a bucket list, owning one would be one of the top things. Love them. I would take this over a BMW 2002 any day! Thanks for sharing!

    For those who are new to Fiats or don't have first hand knowledge of the older cars, read the quotes below from Car & Driver. You'll see why the "old timers" here waited 28 plus years for Fiat to return and what the old cars were like. Cars like the 124 series set the curve back then. They were top rated cars from Consumer Reports and all the car magazines. Don't listen to the haters out there talking dirt about the old cars, they are clueless! Japanese cars with their leaf spring, cart like suspensions couldn't hold a candle to these cars. I'm grateful to those like shaggie's dad for keeping the spot light on these landmark cars.

    Wow Shaggie!!! That is gorgeous!!! Does your dad work on old Mini's too? I have a buddy in desperate need of some carb tuning and he doesn't trust anyone around here to do it.

    Indeed. A 1973 124 Sport Coupe was my first Fiat. I loved that car. It was very nice looking, but the 1972 Sport Coupe has a nicer grille, and is the nicest looking of them all. Nice car, Shaggie.

    Shagghie - Thanks for the post! Because I wasn't sure my question from the wheels thread would even be seen, I was going to PM you, but you beat me to it.

    The 124 is simply BEEE-YOU-TEE-FULLL!! I wish I was old enough to drive during those years! All I could do was look and drool! The models from that era were timeless and oh so Italian! Hey, we're lucky to even have FIAT back in the States so I am thankful for that!

    The 124 above is the whole package wrapped up into 1: from a Concours D'Elegance entrant to a daily driver to a current-day auto-xer.

    Please excuse if this is a dumb question: is the exhaust Abarth or ANSA?
    When I grow up, I want to be a Ferrari!

    Great question, we've had both on there in the past, and I think it's the ANSA now.
    Car sounds just incredible, and is faster than a stock Abarth 500, with about 175Hp and under 2200lbs...
    Hate to say it but also faster over the road, too.
    I'll see if I can get my pop to chime in here for us.
