My friend James and I ran the Alpine 500 this year (and past weekend) in his Fiat 124 Sport Coupe. It was a fantastic trip with the Fiat working hard pulling us up several 8-10kft passes in the Sierras. Lots of interesting vehicles, several Alfas, Fiats, couple of Healeys, 3 914s showed, although there were some problems, and a couple of Ferraris even.
The Fiat suffered a few times with getting a little too hot – at high altitude with steep hills, and then we lost a shock absorber retaining nut. Fortunately we were able to complete the rally and get home with no problems!
Pictures are all here, starting with the pre-registration event – first pic is our car.
