My friend told me that Fiat 125 is one of nicest classic car for collection. Honestly I do not interesting for it. The Fiat brand name is strange for me. I don’t really like this Italian model. Why I was so naif? When I was child I look this car just only box car, not special for me. I like ride my father’s mercedez benz 80’s or his Corolla Dx 83.
But I’ve change my mind, my friend was opened it. I learn about Fiat when she ask me to bought her car, because she was in financial crisis. She told me to take care about it and than she would to bought it back when she escape from her bad situation. I just to help her, no more. So, I bought it. I don’t like this car. For many years, my Fiat 125 1972 just in my garage, just turn on machine, just it.
Some unforgettable moment come to me, I don’t know why, suddenly I want to test drive this car around the town. The magical is I easy to turn on this car, I remember I’ve forgot it for a long time. This chair is so comfortable. I check the gas, I think it’s enough, and then I driving.
My friend was care this really good. Everything still okay, electricity, originallity, and also the performance. I don’t believe this, like brand new car. In a coffee shop I stop the car, I look another Fiat 125 was parking in there. After I finish my coffee, I want to go home. Somebody came to me, he introduce his self and talk about my car. I think he is the owner that Fiat. He praise my car and seem like interesting. I told him that my Fiat knowledge is a little, and laughing. He really serious to interest my car, he ask me to sold it with $15.000, are he was kidding me? I told him, I can not to sold it. I don’t know. I really do not won’t to sold it. At least I want to join it for more time. He was respect to me. Then he ask me to join in Fiat Club. I told I’ll give my answer for few days. He gave me his phone number. And I join the club few weeks later.
Little by little I love this care. I bought 2 different model for add my collection. Here the specification :

The Galant vary obtained a facelift with single rectangular headlights in March 1978.Solely seven months later this entrance design was changed with one that includes twin sq. headlights. Fashions with engines which handed the brand new 1978 requirements modified from the A120 to the A130 vary.

Early automobiles had standard rod-suspended headliners developed regionally to satisfy native content material guidelines however these had been infamous for collapsing on to the passengers’ heads and have been shortly changed by newly developed, glued-in moulded foam liners. The vary was later revised so as to add the wagon and drop the 1.eighty five-litre engine.
