Stallone Italiano: 1971 Fiat 128 Rally

The Fiat 128 (built from 1969-1985 in Italy...and 1980-2001 in Yugoslavia) was the original front-drive modern car [Ed. CFlo: if you don't count the original Mini...] -- it used a transverse front-engine setup that has been copied by billions of cars since, but don't hold that against it because it certainly won't drive like a Camry...because it probably won't start. Don't hold that against it because it'll look great just sitting there. Find this 1971 Fiat 128 Rally offered for $18500 in New Orleans, LA via craigslist.  Tip from Rock On!

  1. my sister's best friend bought one of these, BRAND NEW, and it never went more than a week, before breaking down, usually at some inopportune time. yes, it's true: Fix It Again, Tony was apropos for these cute, but unreliable cars.

  2. Time to play a game: can you lose your license before this thing breaks down?
    I'd like to try.
