1981 Red Spider With Many Extra Parts Including Additional Engine on 2040-cars
Norridgewock, Maine, United States
Red, with an engine from about 1979. Odometer reads 47332 (probably not accurate). Engine starts but fuel pump(s) not working. Consequently I have not driven it since since 2006. Car has been stored in a dry barn for the last 8 years and now my folks say it must go. Condition is a little rough but there are no big rusty areas. Tires: Potenza RE92 with good tread remaining. Aftermarket Ridguard seats need reupholstering. The fabric top will need replacement. As far as I know, everything else works, (except fuel pumps also power windows). Overall condition fair. Some revisions in the engine area (not original air filters, inertia switch removed...other? Comes with many extra parts including a spare engine (year & condition unknown), windshield, doors, a set of magnesium wheels (but may not all be useable). Very pretty little car and fun to drive. Begs for a proper restoration but as I now live on the West coast and storage no longer possible, it's time to find a new home for it. NOTE: In Maine, Titles are not issued for cars of this vintage. Without a Title eBay Customer Service told me I must list it as "Salvage." While I believe the car could be restored to running condition without major work (it was registered and on the road in 2006). please note however that car and all parts will be sold "as is" and as one sale without warranty of any kind/ All must be removed at buyers expense within 14 days unless other arrangements made.

On average, Fiat dealers have only been selling about 17 cars a month.
We've been wondering for some time how Fiat dealers in North America have been getting along with just one model range in their showrooms up until recently. Franchisees spent millions building, stocking and manning sleek new 'studio' showrooms, only to have but a single model to sell, the cherubic 500. And even with its many derivatives, the Cinquecento is still an inexpensive model with its attendant lower margins. Perhaps it should come as no surprise then, that just 45 percent of US Fiat dealers are said to be profitable.

Autoblog Podcast #317:
Naturally, you'd expect a massive automaker like Fiat to have an in-depth plan to exit the current European-market doldrums, and you'd expect that plan to include plenty of new vehicles to attract those precious buyers that still remain despite the financial downturn. And you'd be right, though Fiat does seem to have a few unexpected twists up its corporate sleeve.
Perhaps the biggest shocker is a report that Fiat will completely drop the Punto, a car with mass-market appeal aimed at small-car buyers cross-shopping the popular Volkswagen Polo. Its replacement will be a five-door Fiat 500 aimed at upmarket buyers (sounds awfully similar to the 500L) that will be built in Poland. Lower-end customers will reportedly be served by variants of the Fiat Panda.
Borrowing a page from the BMW, Daimler and Volkswagen playbook, reports Automotive News, Fiat is said to have plans to reignite production at its Italian factories by retooling them to build high-end vehicles from Maserati and Alfa Romeo. These will be marketed as premium products, built by skilled Italian workers (who are paid wages that are 75-percent higher than those building Fiats in Poland), and will be sold around the world.
