• The X1/9 was a car that really caught my eye back in the 70s. I was still in college when it appeared, but I dreamed of buying one on graduation. Sadly, practical matters interfered with that dream. This car looks like a good deal, as long as it is rust-free as claimed. I imagine these are not too hard to keep running. Although I would rather have either the original skinny bumpers or the later 1500cc with 5-speed, the price on this one is very attractive. (Un)Luckily for me, California is a long haul from where I am in the Great White North.

  • For me, in the early 80s, the wedge shape and the Bertone badges were all I needed as these features were also shared with one Lamborghini Countach.

  • When I see these, I always remember a buxom old girlfriend telling me about her and her girlfriends teasing truckers by driving topless in Florida when in college.
