Count yourself lucky, I had a 2-door (single wing-mirror), Fiat UNO with cloth interior. Big Cry



I had a Fiat Uno 1.4ie.

Was ace, very favourable power to weight ratio, skinny tyres- brilliant in the snow and possible to induce lift-off over steer at about 20mph on a roundabout in the wet, excellent car to learn in.

^^^ Despite my alluding to its lack of pulling prowess, I couldn't agree more. Simple, fun tech. Great power to weight as you say, but also, (and as was so common in Italian cars of the era), light, responsive steering and a great little gearbox. But also a rust bucket. I learnt to drive in a Series 3, but my first Friday night limo was the Uno. Loved it. Thumbs Up Monsieur Le Grenadier

I've not been everywhere, but it's on my list.....

So some more photos from my daughter and her 90. She said it took two trips to shift this lot. I think it is shavings for bedding for the pony.

Yep it is a "T" reg. When we got her she came with 265 tyres which came as part of the "Freestyle choice" at the time. I changed them for the 235 tyres she has now. The vehicle is very well specced up. I have the 300 tdi sales brochure and the purchaser ordered every option pack that was available. 1982 88" 2.25 diesel
