Happy Christmas Dino folk!

I drove my car on Saturday - a rare sunny day in the UK! There aren't many ways of remaining positive during lockdown on the eve of Brexit after all ;) Please share a photo if you're enjoying your Dino over the holiday.

Very nice!

Unfortunately they have been salting the roads here since a few weeks, so most likely no driving until spring :(

Christmas came early for me this year :D :D
Got my 1st Fiat Dino (2.0 Spider),...a long long dream of mine finally coming through.
She came from Belgium and does have some work to be done, but first I get her settled into her new home in Switzerland :)
Wishing you all a wonderful Christmas and lots of sunny days and clear roads for 2021.

Wow, that's the sort of White Christmas we can all dream of!! Unusual and very classy colour for a Spider - please post more pics when you can.

Thank you so much for your kind message. She needs some work, especially the undercarriage which was not too well restored some years ago (see pictures, hopefully not too bad) and some work on breaks and electrics, but overall she seems in decent condition. I probably need to come back and ask for some valuable tips from the Dino Aficionado's in this great forum...
Have a Wonderful Christmas.

It doesn't look that bad for her age.

Thank you Tobi, much appreciated!
I was looking at Hugo Harris amazing restoration pictures, what a beauty! Wondering if i should aim to have the undercarriage restored and treated in a similar fashion?....Maybe that is not easy if I do not intent to go for a complete nuts and bolts restauration which I don't think (hope) is necessary with my Dino.
