That's how I learned to work on mechanicals. I also owned a 1967 Alfa SpIder for 20 years and love the Pinninfarina styling........Fiat's too. You do know that "FIAT" is an acronym for "Fix It Again, Tony". Sorry, just couldn't pass that up. My British sports car days taught me how to work on electrics. We learn by our experiences.
Ummm you guys realize that Fiat is back in the North American market now? They are being imported by Chrysler.
