Slow Is The New Fast: 1976 Fiat X1/9

I had a friend who was a fellow speed junkie/car guy, but he swore up and down (actually, he swore a lot…probably too much…and drank like aaaanyway… I digress) that the most fun he ever had in a car was when he owned a Fiat X1/9.  The little 1.3 liter engine pushed out something less than 75 horsepower, but you had to use each and every single one of those squirrels in cages to keep up with traffic and it was a blast.  I’m not so convinced…but I’d give it a try for this price. Find this 1976 Fiat X1/9 here on eBay offered for $2995 buy-it-now located in Antioch, CA with 5 days to go.
