I kind of like it!

Note the mower seat in the background

interesting car. While some of the parts are probably not all that hard to find, the body looks to be very unique. (yes, visually unique, too... )

Way too far out of my project realm, but I know some of the local fiat guys....

Yes, cool seat on the mower in the background.
The JC Whitney-esque mirrors are downright shameful.
I like the design of the center stack gauges.

I saw one of these on the highway earlier this year. To be fair, it was the day of Imports at Carlisle and he was headed in that direction. Given the location, it may have even been this car.

Pretty sure a Yugo motor would border on overkill in this case...

The Fiat 850 mechanicals these are based on are dirt cheap and easy to find.

Do like! And a bike engine sounds good too. Maybe boosted as well?

Cool center console but too bad all the gauges are there. Center-mounted gauge clusters are still uncool on old cars.

I'd change those mirrors immediately as well, looks like someone took regular A-frame-mounted mirrors off an old econobox in the junkyard and stuck them to the fenders.

Very cool! Well, except for the mirrors.
