Not exactly French, though, is it ? I had a couple of these and liked them but 128 saloons were quicker and stopped better. The 128 Berlinetta was a real jewel, though. Pretty and with a 1500 motor and a 5 speed box fitted I did 50,000 miles in one before moving on to Saabs.

I got knocked off my mountain bike whilst doing a paper round many years ago by a blind person in a fiat x19. Really badly sprained ankle that gave me grief for a few weeks. Put a massive person sized dent in his bonnet though which was only good thing

The add says "Apparently it is a Lido" dose that mean there's a pool in or out side of the car? Mate of mine had one years ago 1300CC went like stink but suddenly dissolved in a rain storm.

Don't think I have seen a single blind person driving a Fiat, or anything else for that matter, though it often seems that way. Nineteen, though! You need to move, Stuart [;)]

I remember years ago a (supposedly) blind magician, can't remember his name now, driving a Mk 2 Jag along Ilford high road as a stunt.
He couldn't do it now though, its pedestrianised.
