My very first car was used 1978 Fiat Strada for $750. Front end damaged, hood was painted with blue house paint, doors didn'y stay closed, no heater and no air. Sounded like a mustang straight pipe and tires nearly bare. Drove this dangerous contraption for 2 years then the transmission died. Engine in the trunk really stumped mechanics and tire guys didn't want to change my tires since it had no center hole. Never ran over 50 miles/hour and never ran for longer than 2 hours. Parked in the worst section of philly university city area and no one ever touched it. Security system? The Club. I still have the club.
