    I will trade a set of wheels for YOUR wheels and $1000

    Bump.

    UPDATE: They must move on December 12, or they break BOTH my legs......


    No, kidding, but all Texas bull*&^(*&^it aside they do have to go, and I spoke with my brother about the ranch.
    SO, someone Western Union the $$$$$ and we can hold them behind AJ Foyts shop, until you can pick up and transport.
    My brother probably has a trailer that would carry them BOTH, but he's off to Las Vegas to do some rodeo.

    I know there's been a lot of interest, someone pull the trigger, these are cool cars.
    My new gf is cleaning my bachelor pad, (in lingerie!!!!) she will find the red car title.....
    :D :D :D

    Wish I lived near by and had space. Sad that nobody wants these cars. I’ve had three street cars and raced my Dad’s F production car in SCCA in the early 90s. Totally under appreciated car. With a little work the engines can be made to produce a lot more power. I hope you didn’t really end up cutting them apart. As a side note, my son keeps threatening to contact you and buy them. He’s 17 and has no clue how much work it takes to get a car running after a siesta. Ah youthful optimism. GLWS rust free fiats are few these days.

    I too wish that I was closer. I just picked up a freebee 124 this week. The guy took an ax to it, but the drivers door & hood were saved, and that's what I needed! Plus, it's always nice to have spares.

    The blue one runs great, put the new top on,, fix a radiator leak and he would be styling!!
    Don't High Schools do Shop Class any more??

    Ok folks, I went and borrowed the money, and paid the rental fee off.
    Out of time and want to stay on good terms with the guy.
    Not his fault I am no longer working....

    So to all who felt that $1,800 was "too much", what do you offer?

    I have to move them to my brother's ranch, out from the dry comfy storage.......

    I might get a liquored up and blow them up with these shotguns UroTrash sold me......
    The blue car could use a floor pan, or you could tack some patches in and lay new carpet!
    Body shows almost NO rust at all...

    I recall the fire and water sculpture in Pat O'brien's patio....

    I could put a skeleton behind the wheel, put it out in my brother's pond, and have water and propane jets squirting out everywhere......
    Call it: "Speedy's Last Ride"...

    :D :D :D

    I am going thru toolboxes now the red car title is here somewhere....

    OK...UPDATE:

    The rental got paid, all good.

    The cars have been moved to my brother's ranch, in Waller, Texas.
    You have to pass AJ Foyt Enterprises to get there...:D

    In any event I don't want to leave them there long.
    Nothing good can come from that!

    The "rough red one" one the way to freedom!

    Best offer, guys....
    I do have a Salvage Yard identified, but that just seems a real sad end here at the Holidays.

    Come up with a price for the wheels. I’m still looking for a set or even one as a spare.

    Send me a PM, I will be glad to pull them off as the go to the Salvage Yard this week, you want four??

    I dunno, once they are in Final Repose, you are welcome to them.

    Anyone else??
    17 year old starry eyed kids accepted!!!

    Do you see these wheels anywhere??
    Is $100 each too much??

    Yes, "any reasonable offer" would take them both.....did you change your mind?
    No reply to my PMS

    I did visit a Scrap Yard yesterday but I really cannot bear chopping these up and throwing this Italian iron in with all those modern motors and transmissions!
    :D :D :D

    I followed a red one yesterday but he went into a secured Parking Area, at an oilfield company.
    Tried to contact Huston Fiats too without much luck........missing the monthly gathering which is not far from my house...

    Fiat Club of Houston to the rescue!!!

    SOLD...……

    They are going to chop them up, but at least can reuse that parts.
    $500 for both cars...legal disposal of fluids included!

    The windshields and chrome brought the value.
    If anyone wants some wheels they are available (from the buyer) once we move them this Saturday
