Junkyard Find: 1976 Fiat 124 Sport Spider

So many Fiat 124 Sport Spiders get junked, and the process has been going on for my entire junkyard-prowling career. In the three years of this series, we’ve seen this ’71, this ’73, this ’75, this ’78, and this ’80, and we might as well add the 124’s little brother, this ’71 850 Sport Spider. I don’t even photograph every 124 Sport Spider I see, because they’re almost as common in wrecking yards as ’85 Camrys. Today’s ’76, however, holds the Junkyard Find record for Scariest California Beach Neighborhood Rust.

  • Olddavid I will immediately brand myself as geriatric by saying to buy an upper tier Lincoln without a V8 engine is either the height of stupidity or the apex of salesmanship. I wouldn't have an F1 engine in it as it has not my requisite of cylindrage. 77 quarters as a Ford employee should have imprinted, but evidently did not. Too bad, as I sure approve of the styling.
