Very true. It was my first classic car back in 1980. the handling and steering was sublime. The 1.3 V4 one of the top 10 best engines I have had in any car.The Fulvia is a sweet little car to own, even the 1.3S is willing to let that little V4 rev and for a front wheel drive they handle really well. On those bendy back lanes you will be surprised how well they go.
Great car, if anyone is looking for one, I have one that I'm looking to sell (as pictured in my posts in this thread), but not got around to advertising yet.
