    They just have names starting with the letter E and tend to be tall CS1 Italian-language sources it. Care to Rank 11 Generations of the Chevrolet Suburban? In place of the usual rear solid axle , there is independent suspension from lower wishbones, the original trailing arms, an upper strut and an anti-roll bar. The prior owner spent 2 years tinkering- replaced brake lines, timing belt,and did a lot of cosmetic stuff- gold paint looks pretty good and almost no rust anywhere.

    Are there any Spiders still driving on American streets, or is every single one sitting in a back yard or driveway, waiting for steel prices to rise high enough to trigger the final tow-truck ride to The Crusher? I keep finding these cars in high-turnover wrecking yards, and simple extrapolation of the number of junkyards in the country indicates that the remains of hundreds of Spiders must ship out on Guangzhou-bound container ships every month.

    True, the Fiat Spider was a miserably underpowered and maddeningly unreliable car though not much worse than its British Leyland competition , but is the much more beloved Alfa Spider really that much better?

    Wait, better not to answer that question. How many Spiders remain? Pretty car, just as my 74 SL was, and just as unreliable. Your example here bit the dust at 39k or was it miraculously k? My friend was easy on his car, yet after 50K it became so unreliable that he sold it.

    Split car seats, dancing gas guage, window regulators, onset of rust, misfire, a few tow trips…ugh. But credit due where it is due: It was a ton of fun to rip through the curves. Just keep the engine room boiling….

    They all did over , miles with just basic maintenance. I saw one painted exactly like this one on a flat-bed last week. Looked drivable, except for the whole being-on-a-flat-bed thing. A fellow in my office when I was in the air force had one of these. Got to ride in it a few times with him, back when European sports cars were still king!

    A very fun ride. The Tercel engine saved that car. In their time the s were fun little machines. Yes it suffered all the faults already listed. Drove it until it rusted through. Its remains were combined with another into an SCCA race car that still competes. These early ones were virtually biodegradable…they were pre-anti-corrosion coating and all but the aluminum pieces would eventually dissolve into a pile of rust.

    I have long wanted… make that lusted for… a Coupe in decent shape. Great cars, back in the day. I guess its our lack of salt which is keeping these cars on the road. It was fun to drive and the only mechanical problem I had was a voltage regulator that stopped working and then decided to start working again after I took its cover off and stared at its internals for a couple minutes without a clue what I was looking at.

    I had a lot of fun until the left front suspension broke off the front cross member, then I sold it to a friend to used its parts to restore a couple others. I had one of these. You are wrong about the comparison. The Fiat was a big improvement over the BL product. I owned an MG, and while they were both fun, and while they both required a lot of mechanical attention, the Fiat was definitely the better of the two. And it was not underpowered in the context of the time.

    Fiats were much more advanced than MGBs. Give me a 5-speed, DOHC engine, real front suspension, trailing arms, a panhard rod, coil springs, a roomy interior, a one-hand convertible top and a Weber or fuel injection over a 4-speed with a non-functioning electric overdrive, a tractor motor, king pins, quarter eliptic springs, a pup-tent, and SUs any day. FIAT also increased displacement as emissions standards tightened to maintain performance while MGBs just got clumsier and slower as time went by.
