Chris G's cars

Here are some of the fixed top 124 Sports I've owned...

a '72 that looks much nicer than it was (a cautionary tale for BaT!)

my '70 Coupe (formerly probably a few others' here & storied) which I re-acquired earlier this year (shown here with Recardo Montalbon

this is the bad side of my (current) '72 124 Coupe, the photo being notable because that's taken about 30 minutes into ownership of both cars, in Wisconson, and about 45 seconds into my wife's experience towing a trailer (she was so kind as to tow the Coupe for me!). You probably can not see the CB antenna in the Spider (on a pedestal on the rear seat) so I could coach her. Good times, actually.

my '71 Coupe (this one was rather fun, despite having a blah 1800 in it)

and the French car that I am most certain I should have kept...

and new to my repertoire of Fiat ownership, I love this car & it's pretty cool to have this facing me when I open my office door at work....

still have many weird & kid-like modifications to un-do, but it's not a bad car overall

If I had only known how cool the wagon would look with a roof rack I would have kept it.

It's functional...gets used 75% of the time the car is driven

I love those coupes... Didn't you have a 944 turbo?
