    I really wish you would bring back the Fiat Dino spider, that was a very beautiful car, thank you for bringing back the fiat spider though I thing the Dino would make a bigger splash.

    This vehicle has ALL the excellent body style a person could expect or desire. Certainly reminds me of the 1960+ XKE Jaguar design which I loved. Father-in-law had one & I loved it! Watched most comparisons of Fiat and Mazda. I was planning on buying a Mazda retractable hardtop vehicle. The Fiat 124 Coupe changed my buying thoughts. Even wife is pretty convinced on the coupe; as she doesn’t care that much for convertibles. Feb. 2019 I shall have my Shelby paid for. Spring or summer just may be perfect time for the 124 coupe.
