Thats fantastic! I love the quality of the review, too; she doesn't like the film, but reviews it with more care than most writers you see these days working on stuff they like :)

As for the X1/9, they are indeed fab little cars ... it's a pity that none of the Fiats sold in the UK got to have any undercoating, only the most carefully kept examples ever survived our winters

And as one of many I'm now fitting an Uno Turbo engine into it. Someone else of our club already sooped it up to almost 200 bhp.

That IS a fine looking car
If I had the resources to import one Aussie muscle car,
I'd get a Monaro over the Falcon
