Once in the 70s and once in the 80s I ended up with an Olds F-85 with the Buick aluminum V8.
I had a 1973 1438cc Fiat 124 Sport Coupe once. There are not words to describe this car (both good and bad). I loved it to death. Owning a fiat is one of the best ways to learn every aspect of automotive repair.
Everybody should have one of these.
From 1981-1990, when I was in Los Angeles I drove subaru's.
Cars I owned but would rather not remember.
