Fiat muscle car?

Check out this cute little Fiat 126, racing a Porsche. The Porsche gets blown away! Watch the video.

Here is another Fiat 126 fitted with a 2 liter Toyota engine. (check out the girl on the right side of the picture, she looks like she's getting ready to toss her cookies!)

  1. That's too funny. You always have to watch out for the sleeper. Embarrassing as it is for the Porsche, it coulda been worse. The Fiat coulda been a Yugo!

  2. Ms. MHL: I owned a couple of Fiat's in my younger days. One even had a two barrel carb which turned the little 1.1 liter four banger in to a "fast" car compared to the other one I had. But it wasn't that fast. I think someone had been playing under the hood of that one. I also got a feeling there isn't no stinkin' little 1.1 in that thing either! That was funny. Got to wonder if the guy in the Porsche even went back to the pits and just went home with his tale between his legs! That's got to hurt the ol' ego a bit don't you think :)

  3. This is a great post. I drove a Fiat Uno from Nice France to Monte Carlo and it was great...my favorite though is the Fiat cinque cento Fiat500
    What is the correct address to your blog, I'm trying to follow it but the link you have under your profile does not take me there. So I have to look for you manually (So to speak)

  4. Too funny. Reminds me of the old days when they used to shoehorn a V8 into a pinto or a gremlin.

  5. Hey, I laughed at a pinto on the strip once, until it blew me away. Yeah, it was modified but just goes to show that you can't always tell how hot she runs just by the way she looks. Some older models put out more than the newer ones. Whooooo hoooooo!

    Oh yeah...he slowed down long enough to put a dent in my front passenger side quarter panel with a aluminum bat when I got up next to him.

    I couldn't catch him and the really pissed me off!

  6. Hey a Pinto never had a V8 stuffed into her guts...Let's have some respect here...she was under age and no God fearing creature would do that to her...her only fault...that led to the firing squad...she was always on PMS...exploded when rear ended...I've had a Pinto and let me tell you...she was one hell of a classy lady to ride everyday....!

  9. Thanks to all of you for posting.
    I thought this little Fiat was very cute. We had a Fiat when I was growing up and then when I graduated from High School, I bought a brand new Fiat X19. I loved that car. It had this fantastic little mid-engine and really hugged the road. I did have to be careful around the 18 wheelers though, they could suck that little car right into their air pocket behind them! Used to scare the bejesus out of me!

    Sir Baron- I'm very humbled by your comment. I don't see myself as brave at all, being in the chair is a way of life for me now. Once the loss of my ability to walk finally sunk in (it took years!) I was able to move forward and make the best life for myself as possible.
    Just like everyone, I have good days and bad, but the good far out weigh the bad.
    My path in life is no harder than anyone elses, we all have out crap to deal with...I refer to all of that as "life".
    I'm blessed in more ways than I can list, and getting to know fellow bloggers like you is one of those blessings.
    Thank you for making me smile with your "no pun intended".
