Man those are all nice examples. I gotta like the Lada best just for the color scheme.
Had to friends that had the 850 Spyders. Continuious head gasket and carb problems. I never actually saw one go long enough to wear out a set of struts but they say it cost more to replace them than the car was worth. Hence the 850 Spyder had the reputation of being a "disposable car."
The 124 Coupe and Spyder were great cars....So long as you changed that rubber band. The coupes we worked on were a bit different configuration. Maybe a little later model? Always like the lines of the coupe.
Did anyone make a casting of the FIAT Abarth "Double Bubble" Coupe? That was without a doubt the best looking FIAT I ever personally saw. I wouldn't mind having one of those in my 1/43 line-up myself.
