I couldn't believe my eyes. I couldn't believe my eyes.

I think everyone has the right to do whatever they want with their car, as long as it doesn’t pose risks to their environment.

'70 Fiat 500 - what say you oppo? '70 Fiat 500 - what say you oppo?

I found a 1970 Fiat 500L for sale locally. Craigslist listed for $12.5k, ebay no bids no reserve relisted and priced dropped starting at $9,200 so there is room for negotiation.

Oppo, I just had a "Wait a minute...what?" moment... Oppo, I just had a "Wait a minute...what?" moment...

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):

Fun Hatches For Non-Oppos Fun Hatches For Non-Oppos

My friend is very much not a car enthusiast, being a fan of an automatic gearbox like some sort of heathen. That aside, they want a fun hatchback under $15,000 AUD.

You see your old car on craigslist, and the person selling it did something horrible to it.

...and want to pick up a fun little ride for $9500 CAD? Just found it in my random searches for fun. :D

Disclaimer: Fiat wanted me to drive the 2012 Fiat 500 so badly that they sold it to my friend Alison, who needed it delivered from DC to SF at the same time my employer wanted me to burn off a week of comp time.

So I have a reservation in on a Tesla Model 3 but realize even tho I’m early it’ll be awhile. So I knew I could get a Leaf for under 10k, but wanted something newer (2014), smaller and more towable, etc. If you drove the Leaf vs either of these let me know in the comments.

Haven’t posted in ages, especially about my 500, but today I finally rid myself of the stock intake setup, and changed my plugs, since apparently the recommended service interval is 60k miles or so, and I was at 81k. One of the techs at work was kind enough to lend me his bay and his tools after we were done for the…

EDIT - Not as long or quite as interested as I hoped (posted before looking at the length, sorry!), but still a neat video! :) I love 2StrokeTurbo’s channel, some awesome machines! His latest is a comparison between a classic FIAT 500 and a Subaru 360 from the same time period! :D

Hello! This is my first post on Oppo since I’ve recently gained authorship, and thought that my first post would be a nice collection of photos from last sunday’s CnC. It was packed, and probably the biggest I’ve seen yet. Enjoy!

Honestly Refreshing: A Fiat 500 Review Honestly Refreshing: A Fiat 500 Review

On my desk at home is a green paperweight, molded in the shape of a heart scarab, the bottom covered in “hieroglyphics”. When I was younger, a friend of mine introduced me to Egyptology, and a dream was born. As time went on, the dream naturally shifted—to ornithology, then marine biology, then chemistry, and finally…

Shame this one slipped through the cracks of us JalOppos!

Wow, $5k CAD for a little Autobianchi/FIAT 500 Giardiniera? 1977 would have been the last year for the classic 500 - the non-wagon 500s stopped production in 1975, but the Giardiniera 500s stayed in production until ‘77 under the Autobianchi branding.

And here we zee...

Well Oppo....I am now old. Well Oppo....I am now old.

I turn 30 today and am still living at home with no girlfriend, looking for a full-time job so I can get my own place. So, clearly, I am well ahead on Life’s goals! :P :/ That being said, I still have my paid-off poverty-spec Korean ecobox ‘Humdrum’ and my FIAT 126p fund is slowly increasing... :D ...so, I guess I’m…

Very well done short vid - makes me want a classic 500 even more! :D

Sweet Mother of Jesus, those glorious, glorious noises. The exhaust sounds better in person than on any video I’ve watched.
