My first car was a Morris Ital in pageant blue. A 1.3L. One of Leylands finest. I suspect it started to rust before it even left the factory. Spent many happy summers filling it with fibreglass and bodge. It lasted me for about 10 years then passed it onto my brother in law for free. He sold it to a stock car racer. I bet he had a suprise the first time he hit anything!! :D

I wish my first car was a Ferrari 360 Spider, unfortunately:
- Fiat 126p (first one)
- Citroen AX
- Renault Twingo
- Seat Altea
- VW Jetta
- 206cc + Opel Zafira Tourer (current cars)

Still longing for that Ferrari I never had :-)

I had a Fiat 126 as a project. I was in the process of fitting a Renault V6 and transaxle, but I lost my storage, so it had to go.

I'm considering a 126 as a little toy. They are plentiful and cheap as cheaps over here, plus spares are available over the counter for pennies too.

I had Abarth stickers made for mine and belt cushions with Abarth logo embroidered...

Never heard of someone putting a V6 in a 126p but there are a few videos of one with an engine from a motorbike. and it is fast...

There are a few people putting big Motorbike engines in lots of cars now. My Classic group is the Austin A30 & A35s and we have a couple with big 1100/1300 Kawasaki engines.

One owner is building a 1275 A-series with a 16v BMW bike head .. estimating around 135bhp! A small increase over the 28bhp the original 803cc engine made!
