Mr. Roy Zukerman restored this little 21.5 hp Vignale Gamine he’s owned for over ten years, then criss-crossed the country with it. It also has no air-conditioning or radio or roof. Fortunately however, that country is Israel, which means that you can cross it in a matter of mere hours. However, he's covered many thousands of miles with it, throughout the small nation.

What the heck WAS this thing? I’d never heard of a Fiat, but I quickly fell in love with the wood dash, the big steering wheel and the gauges in Italian. The shifter felt very precise, and the little car just begged to run. I was in love! Of course, they hadn’t really thought about selling it and needed to "think about it," so I went home feeling dejected.

While a decent seller in America, the X1/9 is rather uncommon today. This 1981 X1/9 for sale on eBay is characterized as a solid, functioning daily driver that would be a good “starter X” for someone wanting to learn about them or to drive without worrying about errant shopping carts or salty roads.

Cheap and enjoyable classics play an important role in vintage car culture: they allow almost anybody to experience the thrill of pure driving bliss.

I love the Fiat 124 because it embodies all the charm, romance, style and sex appeal of the most famous classic Italian cars while delivering it in a practical, cheap package that anyone can get their hands on. But the Porsche is a different story: I purchased the 911 because of a nagging that I just couldn't ignore as I grew up in the back of one.

The Fiat “was rusty, noisy, slow and very small but now, as a driver, I really like it. It has no electronic assistance, no ABS, no power windows, and no air-conditioning. Just driving without distraction.” It's had its fair share of trouble and there are also little electronic issues that pop up.
