How did you find out about us? (Web search, from a friend, ...)

Jon Logan at Midwest124

What Fiat / Lancia do you own?

"1979" Spider 2000 (Ltd Ed. champagne clone, body color) - "Dora" (Italian for gold) - F.I. conversion by P.O. from carb - technically '80 specs.

When did you get your first Fiat or Lancia?

"First", (8/07) an '81 Spider 2000 was to be a restoration project - sold to ChiFLUster Mike S. "Second" - current - a '79 Spider 2000 "Dora" - FI conversion; ran 2000 mile roundtrip to '08 FFO with no hiccups!

What is your favorite driving story, or memory?

In a FIAT - has to be trip to FFO-08! Other - '87 One Lap of America (last real One Lap - 8 days 9000 miles) in a Porsche 944 Turbo, first speeding ticket, then losing to a YUGO (Fiatski) we arrived too early at checkpoints, gained penalties.


A club like Chi-FLU is a must to enjoy these fun cars! Laura and I live in Lakemoor, both car nuts. Like to plan a gimmick or entry TSD (time-speed-distance­) rally, if there's interest. Spider for sale, Abarth 500 Cab next.
