A FIAT?? Hows the reliability? They have a less than stellar reputation here in the US.

The only major issue is the timing belt tensioner which is a real PITA in those earlier Brazilian Fiats with a 124-based engine. Some folks resort to a shorter belt and no tensioner while overhauling the engine.

All those don't seem odd compared with this:


Just A Car Guy: have you ever seen a 1906 Cantono electric car? If ever I was impressed by a vehicle that could have been the very origin of the term 'horseless carriage" this would be it

It's not a Porsche-Loehner? It looks like there is a fifth spring between the carriage and that [twist beam?] backbone frame. I hope there is a planetary gearbox under that steering column. Three control rods for the brakes and ??

That tow rope tells a story. Range anxiety is nothing new.

Looks like a good inspiration for some steampunk project.

That's awesome, but the page is locked down pretty good.

Someone should alert aerohead about the articulated trailer.

I wonder what the Cd is.
