Q: Great looking car again !! Does the ac compressor even turn over? If the ac has never been used I see a $1000.00 bill just in ac work alone. ... been there done that ... does the car smoke at start up or any other time? Also, do you have any idea about shipping cost? Thanks Kirk in Florida -firstname.lastname@example.org Aug-24-08
A: 800 dollars to Florida by DAS. The AC in these cars worked marginaly when new. No smoke on start up. These are all pretty unfounded questions considering the condition of this car. I have gone to great lengths to restore this car. Why would I put thousands of dollars in Paint and Leather on a car that smokes on start up??? With 192 watchers and over 3300 page views of the car, your question should be How much will you take Jeff? Can I buy the car before anyone else makes you an offer? This car looks better in person than in pictures. Bid with Confidence. Maybe try bidding period...
Q: Hi Jeff , Don't you just want to bitch-slap these clowns with there little whiney-butt questions ? Any car that rolls is worth AT least a grand .I'm not sure if I want to list an X/19 for a buddy at work . Oh yeah , SWEET ride you got ! I've been working on a 77 Scorpion for the past seven years so I understand pain and pride . I did view the road trip video , that wasn't this X/19 , the back-deck was a lighter colored car ? Hey , try living in Southeast Oklahoma , I'm called the "Yankee with the funny lil' fur'in car , ( I'm a Sacramento transplant). Good Luck ! Terry Aug-24-08
A: Thanks Terry. The other car in the video is my 69 Fiat 850 spyder with a Rotary engine. JJ
Q: Very nice Fiat. Will you end the auction early???? Thanks. Aug-22-08
A: Sure make me an offer. Call me 949-910-1206
Q: Can thoughs dumb donkey emblems be removed easily without ruining the paint:? Aug-21-08
A: Yes. With a heat gun they fall right off. I will tell Bob how much you like them...
Q: Hey, I just wanted to tell you what an awesome car you have. I've seldom seen any nicer. I'm not in the market for one right now, but seeing your photos, I wish I was. Anyway, I just had to comment on your car and the excellent photos which look like they were taken for an X1/9 calendar! I'm sure you will get top dollar!! Aug-21-08
A: Thank you for the Compliments. You are a credit to your race,,,, The human race...
Q: Great looking car ... a few questions 1. Are there center caps for the rims. 2. Do you have larger pictures I never understand the small pictures when cameras now deliver large detail pictures. 3. Ac System condition? 4. SB shield? Not original? scuderia? b? Aug-20-08
A: S.B. is Scuderia Bertone. Look real close and that is a Donkey not a horse. Sort of a Joke amongst fiat people. A.C system as described in my description dont know if it works. Large pics are something that you just cant load on the internet, But try clicking on the pics in the auction they should come up full screen. How big is your screen. If you have a 40inch plazma screen then those pics will load much larger. I dont have panasport centercaps however I have some black ones that say Fiat that the buyer is welcome to. Jeff
Q: Wow, one of the niciest I've seen..let me ask about the turn signals,wipers, horn etc.,etc which are required in Texas. Regards, Larry in Texas. Aug-19-08
A: Everything works Larry. And thanks for the compliments.
Q: Please explain / comment on all of the obvious oil burning / smoke in your posted video. Looks like valve or ring job needed at minimu? Aug-19-08
A: What in the Flying Fornicating Monkey are you talking about??? The video of my Car is not running. In fact the car burns so clean you can breath the exhaust for an hour and get cleaner lungs than if you breath for an hour in downtown Los Angeles. Seriously WTF are you smoking. THis is the cleanest 85 bertone you will ever see. Now bid please or Go bother someone else...
Q: do you have the center caps for the wheels? i would like to no if all AC parts are on the car and only needs a charge/the car haveing AC is what i would want in north carolina on the coast,its hot here. a friend of mine had one of these,what a blast to drive. thanks chris Aug-18-08
A: I dont have the Panasport caps but i have some regular Fiat caps your welcome to. All of the AC parts are hooked up. I had a buddy of mine confirm it. Jeff
Q: Is the chrome on the bumpers painted black, is there any rust repair to undercarriage or wheel wells. From the video it looks like there is a big square hole in the door panel, is something missing. Aug-18-08
A: THe X-19 never came with Crome Bumbers. The bumpers are alluminum. Depending on the year of the car some of these bumpers were polished. This car came from the factory painted. Yea the little interior light keeps falling out because the clips are warn on the drivers door. I have new ones and will have it repaired soon. NOt any rust anywhere on this car it is unbelievably clean. Jeff
Q: Can you comment on the age or condition of: - fuel injection hoses - clutch and brake master cylinder - brake/clutch fluid reservoir - suspension bushings - control arms - tie rods - shocks - timing belt/valve adjustment - radiator hoses - smoke on startup (e.g. valve stem seals) - brake hoses There appears to be a lot of camber in the front shock towers (misaligned strut tops in the body). My car has this too. Did you ever get a quote to fix the A/C or investigate why it didn't work? Aug-18-08
A: Didnt Rudy already address some of these questions on Xweb? The only things I need to address are the brakes. Just a bit more bleeding. The car is really great. The camber angle is because of the offset of the Panasports. Even when the AC systems worked in the 80s they sucked. So even if you get it working it will rob about 20percent of the available power to the engine. No smoke at all on start up. the rest is fine. feel free to call me if you like. Brake master is brand new. Shocks are new. Jeff
