Stallone Italiano: 1971 Fiat 128 Rally
The Fiat 128 (built from 1969-1985 in Italy…and 1980-2001 in Yugoslavia) was the original front-drive modern car [Ed. CFlo: if you don’t count the original Mini…] — it used a transverse front-engine setup that has been copied by billions of cars since, but don’t hold that against it because it certainly won’t drive like a Camry…because it probably won’t start. Don’t hold that against it because it’ll look great just sitting there. Find this 1971 Fiat 128 Rally offered for $18500 in New Orleans, LA via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!

my sister's best friend bought one of these, BRAND NEW, and it never went more than a week, before breaking down, usually at some inopportune time. yes, it's true: Fix It Again, Tony was apropos for these cute, but unreliable cars.
Atsa mah boy Tony
the wheels are just great
Time to play a game: can you lose your license before this thing breaks down?
I'd like to try.
