Waitin' On Parts...
The current season of Motor Trend channel's Wheeler Dealers has ended in the USA, but the upcoming season (broadcast dates unknown) will kick off with a full episode covering a 1971 FIAT 124 Spider.

If you are eager to see the episode and can't wait, do what I did and sign up for the free 14-day trial of access to Motor Trend's on-demand streaming service. It's easy and the online content is in very high resolution and looks as good as, if not better than, the episodes shown on TV. Bonus: no commercials!

Having watched the Spider episode, I can say that Mike bought a survivor example that was virtually rust free, he and Ant made the right choices for what they did to the car, and at the end it was well-sold to the Buyer. Both presenters seemed to genuinely like the car and seemed committed to the doing right by the car. I have to think Spider fans and especially Spider owners will be very pleased with the whole episode.


Just Another FIAT Freak
Having bought two 1971 124 Spiders to make one, I will be looking forward to viewing that episode.
