She needs a name with a little positive reinforcement, how about, Shirley

79 Fiat ?

How about Rusty ?

Fix-It-Again-Tommy

Italian Stallion?

Fix-It-Again-Tommy

That’s it.

I had a '76. You can’t print what I called it many times, but “Money Pit” seems to work for me now. Rusty is another good one. Hope you didn’t spend much for it boys . . . 'cause you’re gonna. Rocketman

LOL, I almost bought a new one of those in about 81. They were cute, but I did get it a little sideways during the test drive. Fun to drive, but I never could get used to driving front engine sports cars. My GF liked a BMW better, so that’s what we (she) ended up buying.

This car definitely needs a female name.

How about Rolls-Canardly? Because, being that it is Fiat, it rolls down one hill, and it can 'ardly get up the next one!

Yes, I know that this sounds British, but my Italian fluency is insufficient to come up with an equivalent in that language.

I suggest Sophie, as in Sophia Loren. It’s sexy, Italian, and maybe has a few miles under her belt.

We got it!!!

Fix It Again, Money Bags Tommy

Fix it Again; I need another boat payment; Tommy.

Someone with better Italian than ours could come up with a nice Italian name using those initals.

Mr. Hooper

…because Mr. Hooper also spent a lot of time in the shop. My uncle had one of these back in 81-82 and it was a piece of junk then!

Elan (pronounced: ee-lawn)

How about Tony as in , “Fix it again Tony”.

Supersonic; that’s an adequate misnomer.

Cute White Car :slight_smile:
