This Fiat, owned by Tero Komulainen, has made a long journey from a childhood's field car to a HiFi contest trophy magnet. It's not fast, but it more than makes up for that by being rude and loud.
Dragster Fiat Vimo (Fiat 600 1972)
15 years of erosion and corrosion tuning in pouring water, power air filter and a Honda CBR muffler
Stock transmission without oils, custom drive shafts
140mm lowering, which required comprehensive chassis and body modifications, such as a custom Abarth front axle and raising the engine (and friends) by 80 millimeters.
Front: removed altogether
BBS RS, 3.5x15” in the front and 8x15” in the rear
115/70/15 in the front, Michelin slicks' in the rear
Floors are lowered by 40mm, the skirts sit 40mm lower, the front end is lowered by 40mm and the front bumper sits about 100mm lower than stock, the engine is raised by 80mm, Abarth wider flares, Abarth racing rear spoiler, headlights replaced with speakers, etc. What's left intact are hinges and door handles.
Too much to write. Everything has been made with own two hands. There is a fire extuingisher.

All kinds of things have been planned: there's a CBR600F engine waiting in the garage, and a new front axle for an adjustable suspension. So something like that, or then the future might be about eating chips and drinking long drinks.
