Is This Your Motor?

Bob, and that is very sad but very true!
You mentioned, Richard, that you drove a Fiat Strada- just wondering, what were they like? Where they mechanically good? Do you remember the amazing advert on the telly when they launched the model, with the robots working to classical music?! I was tempted to test drive one as I liked the futuristic looks, but the wife didn't think much of it so I bought a Cortina and played it safe!

Alf, If I said that I had a Strads, I misspoke. I did have two friends that did. Mechanically they were OK until the new (about 2 years) wore off. In the US FIAT means "fix it again Tony". The other problem I recall is that they rusted badly particularly in the northern US states.
Hope tat helps!
