Well, I bit the bullet, and bought the Fulvia. With any luck, I can get it onboard a truck in the upcoming week, and get it here within the next two.

Got my Brooklands book the other day, and have been reading up on the car. The magazines of the day really seemed to be enthralled with the car, though they all hated the heating/ventilation system.

I can hardly wait!

I'll second Adan's congratulations! And offer my help, too.

The ventilation controls are mediocre at best, but in So Cal it really doesn't matter. With the rear quarter vents open and the windows down, I've driven midday in 90+ heat without any real problem (and I'm no fan of sweating in a car). It's pretty rare that you'll need to worry about de-misting the windshield, and even rarer that you'll have to worry about heating.

I'll be very interested to see the car once it's here. Three Fulvias at VCR will make quite a sight!

You betcha! I'm hoping I'll be able to drive it there, as the seller has indicated the car has a sticking rear caliper (Dunlop), but is including a rebuild kit for it.

A typical problem if the car doesn't get regular use. But it's an easy problem to avoid. I took the Fanalone out on Mulholland last night--strictly for brake maintenance...

yes but when it gets a little to much noticed is time to fix it. and the rear calipers of your car it happens some times, no big deal I have done all fulvias I have. it just part of owning fulvias.

Here are 3 Fulvias I found on the 'Net. One of them is obviously Ed's, but I have yet to see the other 2. One looks like a pretty stock series 2:
