all the power!!!!!!!!!!
I used to own a Mk3 Escort but the others have escaped me.
...so here is a history of the 126p’s design changes (...that I may or may not have posted here before, but can’t remember) in the form of pixel art! :D
Anything for today? I’m sure there must be something very small and usually Polish....
Found these for sale on Kijiji in Alberta...other side of the country from me, but very surprised to see them as they are FAR from a common ‘classic’ here in Canada! This guy has TWO! I contacted him for fun and he isn’t really open to selling them one at a time right now, which is a shame....it’s more of a ‘feeler’…
...to want to go out and buy 126s along with me now. You’re welcome. :P
This FIAT 126 has some rather weird ‘layered’ aftermarket foglights....I’ve never see a light with more than one beam that had the beams’ casing portions in the SAME HOUSING set at two different ‘layers’ before!
Fun fact! The FIAT 126p has vents in the doors for extra ventilation! :)
...I have been told by Borsuq that I have been neglecting my FIAT 126-spamming duties. Alas, I apologize and officially rectify the error of my ways here:
So, last evening and this evening I’ve been spending my free time watching this two-part series on how to reassemble a classic FIAT 500/FIAT 126 engine (yes, I am obsessed enough that I’m watching 2 hours of video on reassembling the engine for a car I don’t even have yet :P):
That means unnecessary FIAT 126 tidbits of information! :D This is the toolkit that came with every FIAT 126:
Did you know the FIAT 126 can have its entire engine hood removed by undoing one latch and one bolt? That’s it!
Spring is finally properly here in Nova Scotia! Can’t wait until I can finally get one of these little guys to hoon around! :D
...but if I haven’t and you want a legitimately good read to kill some time, head on over to Drivetribe and enjoy! Another story to prove even the most tiny, basic, crappy cars can have a huge heart!
Did you know the FIAT 126 had two differently-shaped taillight designs (several different designs, but two different shapes) in the course of it’s production run? :O
Oldies but goodies! Renault 4 commercial van and FIAT 126! Hope somebody restores them - they both don’t look too far gone! Plus, the Renault has a sidepipe! :D
Mid-morning Maluch waits masterlessly for mobile city madness! :D
This is brilliant.....also probably illegal, but hey, if it’s on an abandoned stretch of line, it’s not that unsafe! :)
Morning Oppo....hope you all have a beautiful Saturday!
Martini-striped FIAT 126 on a beautiful Autumn evening for your time! :)
