    Took a Punto at the auctions. Bravo Good Sirs

    So I may have goaded CA18Escort into bidding on this mystery bag of mystery which he did with bare minimum cash and inexplicably won what we thought was a Fiat Punto.
    He got me back by making me keep it (Saab reasons).

    what actually turned up on the flat bed was this thing - a Fiat Ritmo whatever that is.

    so anyway, this is a fiat ritmo. It is some kind of fiat. And black. It has doors and 40k km on it and appears to have a turbo.

    actually, I’ll stop pretending. Can anyone tell us anything about these? All we know is we now have one.

    plan is to change the glass and do track days et al

    Captain Slow actually fits in it (in the same way Rebel Wilson fits into a g string).

        Some versions have a boost button.
        not this one. It has a steering wheel button.

          Yeah I read that. I wonder if the hardware is there for it? Just dodge up a switch and bam! The head gaskets gone.

            The dealer of a bunch of luxo brands I worked at moved the fiat/alfa workshop from another of it's buildings into the one I was at, It'd been going for about 9 months before I left and I never saw one of these, HTH.

                    I heard about this thing, it sounded like a bad idea.

                    Now that i've seen it, it looks like a bad idea too.

                              I think this is a brilliant idea. Granted I'm not paying for it, so I would say that.
