Thirty years ago I had the 125 Special Mark two and I couldn't agree more, a beautiful piece of machinery. The engine was a 125b 1608cc with a 5 speed manual box that lasted for over 200000 miles. The twin cam engine sang like a lark. The only Fiat to out-perform the 125 was the 124 Coupe (and Dino) with the twin Weber 124BC Engine... also 1608cc revving up to 9000rpm.
