If you are looking for a fully functional FIAT 124 Spider, that runs as good as it looks, here it is – I will not get too chummy with the sales pitch, just look below at all the work that has been done and check out the videos to view it’s performance…I have included pictures of some of the parts that have been installed – All work has been meticulously performed (per spec - correct bolt / nut torqueing, calibration, part prep, painting and more…)

Notes:

This car starts, runs, and rips like factory new – if not better! It's handling and driving characteristics are outstanding! See videos below - All driving was done near full rev and at high-speed - You can also hear the tire-chirps when I downshift and brake from high speed to illustrate it's robustness / precision - I did not hold back, and it does this again and again - plug and play hard!
