Here is the 128 now in it's final 'transitional' stage! Probably gonna drop it another 25mm, then I'm going to drive it around like this for a while so I can get my Mini back on the road. After that it's time for the 2 litre, flared Group 2 Rally conversion!😁

First race weekend. Gingerman Raceway, South Haven Michigan, USA, May 1998. It was a great first race car. Race car from almost new. Sat from 1975 to 1995, when I found it and restored it to track ready condition. A lot of my fellow vintage racers ask whatever happened to that car. It went off to the West coast, where it received some nice updates under new ownership.

This is a picture of my 128 from over 20 years ago. The picture was taken in SoCal where the car was first registered. The lady on the left was the original owner for almost a year before I bought it at the end of 1975.

At the time this picture was taken it had a 79 Strada 1500 and five speed duel Webber's and rally cam. We were half way through a 3,000 mile two month road trip and just starting the return voyage home. I sure miss that car. Take warning, don't get rid of your cars. Better to let them rust in your yard.

Coil overs and spherical jointed arms... Almost the same set up I'm running. Koni single adjustable struts, I'm starting with 300 lb springs and will dial it in from there, I'm using delrin bushings in the rear arms instead of the spherical joints because the spherical bearings don't last long on the street, but I am using them up front. Delrin bushed 5 speed sway bar up front, plus I have the Addco rear sway bar as well but I will see how it drives without it first before adding it.

Marc, I think that applies to all Fiats from the 70s! I was very disappointed with my first 131 to find out the sheet metal behind the bumpers was not smooth and I couldn't remove the bumpers.

Hey Marc,
As the current owner of this car I am happy to report that it is still in excellent condition.
Here is a pic on the track from a couple years ago.
