Its a true straight-through system, you get a great view of it in one of the shots.
But yeah, looks like it was a pretty nice car once upon a time
Look at how far over the driver was flung in the 2nd to last pic on pg1, and it doesn't look like the driver was even wearing a neck brace  ::) :o 
Wait for the HANS comments from our resident racers...

What a scary car to crash so small and close to the impact you are.

Thats some pretty amazing photography right there, certainly a waste of a very nice and well looked after car. The photos on the 2nd page show how far the car kept moving!

thought we should revive this thread as there is a strong contingent of fiat boys on vask. mention anything in the fiat family, ferrari, lancia, old school lamborghini's etc.

update on my fiat, timing is a fair bit out. she tends to run on for awhile after i turn the ignition off, very weird.

lanica, never work on a delta. phil may have spilt his sorrows about the car to you terry. tried to get water pump off, 1.5hrs later still on realising to get it out we need to drop the engine.

How's your tipo turbo terry? fully certified yet?
