    after retiring, carlo abarth moved to jersey, to earn enough for the flight he spent a week working in a car factory in poland. he so impressed them that they gave him 6 of their top selling model. five of these were sold to finance his new life and the 6th he took with him and uprated in his traditional way, i think you have found that car :thumb:

    Yea check my "other ride" topic (link in my signature!)

    It's not an Abarth though, and neither is the one you saw as they don't exist. It's a Fiat 126. I think my photo shopped ones were better and more convincing!

    Brilliant photoshop Draigflag  :thumb: the next new brand of Abarth right  8)

    If its just a Fiat made to look like an Abarth then it explains the "FastFiat" sticker in the back window I suppose. Those scorpions make all the difference in a vehicle's performace you know  :whistle:

    Hello Everyone

    You are right this 126 is not a Abarth

    But in the later 70s Fiat did other a Abarth kit for the 650 air cooled 126 as a dealer fit kit. It inc a new cyl head,carb and exhust system.

    I remember my farther fitting them.  :thumb:
