Gorgeous, forgiving, scary and pig headed. Is that you you're talking about carrot or the car   ;D
Now that I'm a grown up I drive a sensible grey 595 Competizione with grey leather sabelt seats and yellow brake calipers. It's jolly nice! It's got a name - ' Razzogrigio' Now with a custom S/S group N style exhaust, black Esseesse wheels and a GTT induction kit, all sitting on Eibach springs.

    It sounds to me from your number plate that your 128 Abarth was not a UK car........ :whistle:

    Yeah, that was mine bright red, the horn was very special, it scared the living daylights out of my compatriots on the road.  And obviously, since I drove it, it took on my characteristics  ;D  And those servo brakes at the time.  I took possession of the car and hit the brakes like on my previous 128 and Tina and I got strapped by the seatbelts and it just stood.  Wow.  It was an amazing car for its time and I love it to this day and am proud I had the pleasure to drive and own one.  I saw it in a dealer's window in Dusseldorf and decicded that this was going to be my next car.  And we spent 6 years together, not always happy, but this is where my lovely dad came in to help me out  ;D
