Thats brilliant, especially liking the interior and the wheels.
Do you know what size they are? guessing 4x98 too being a fiat?
The car is at my parents house now and I'm taking care of it, ie removing all the rust.
Just one hour ago my doorbell rang. I was a bit surprised as I wasn't expecting anyone. It was my nephew, he wanted to show me his new car:
1974 FIAT 128 with a FIAT Ritmo Engine+G'Box. This thing is a blast to drive :-) And people's reactions are fantastic, we had a guy in an Impreza STi slow down and give us the "thumbs up"
Little fact I didn't know (anymore): It has IRS all around and a traverse leaf spring at the rear and an automatic brake bias modulator. It is just sad they had that much of rust problems back then...

Nice, my friend is looking for new wheels for his Fiat Uno, quite hard to find anything decent as 4x98 isnt very common and old Alfa/Lancia wheels dont come up very often for sale. I think those wheels would look great on his Uno though, ill show them him as a possible option.
The stickers were put on by the girl (!) who was the previous owner. GTI EATER is a bit far fetched, but the car weighs a little over 800kg (1600lbs) and has around 80hp and that's noticeable.
That Fiat is absolutely gorgeous. Fantastic!
Car looks great My friend has a orange one whose metal is slowly getting thinner and thinner. This one looks solid though!
There's a bunch of great later 4x98 wheels out there.

Compared to today's cars, it is amusing to see just how big the 128's greenhouse is compared to the rest of the car's body.
And those are some serious looking exterior window blinds on the buildings. Is Luxembourg far enough North that it never gets totally dark at night in the summer?
128 were pretty common in my country, the leftover from Yugoslavia. they made them in zastava, the same factory that made the Yugo, the car that i think most of you are familiar with. some years ago my father bought it for a spare car while his mk2 golf was in the shop. personally i didn't like it, it felt like a wooden box on wheels, plus i heard they were pretty weak in accidents, even in those years.
but i love to see old cars on the roads, the "good" an the "bad" ones, because they remind me of different times that we so soon forget about.
but it was still a better looking car than the Zastava 101 (stoenka):
this was a hatchback version of the 128
Zastava's 128-based Skala remained in production until November 2008. Towards the end of its life it was claimed to be the world's second-cheapest new car, with only the Tata Nano being less expensive.
