>.. I think the X1/9 will probably get a look-in first (if there's anything left to restore after it's been dipped)

Saw it lurking at the grotto. I always liked the X1/9. Looking forward to seeing that one restored.

It's a case of unfinished business for me. I had one when I was a student (also an early 1300). It was fabulous when it worked, but it overheated and then wouldn't restart when hot nearly every time I drove it. I took it to my local garage, who couldn't find the problem, then entrusted it to a "specialist" who also couldn't find the problem, did a load of unnecessary work and then expected me to change it to a 1500. I reached the end of my tether and sold it, and always regretted it. I know this one's going to cost a fortune to restore (if it's at all viable) but I could probably spend the same amount on a brand new Fiat 124, and I know which I'd rather have.
