"New" car.
« on: January 05, 2020, 20:46:30 »
Recently sold my Alfa Montreal, then decided I wanted a Fiat 2300S. Have long admired this model, and finally, after paying an exorbitant amount of money, purchased a nice example out of Italy.

He he, in the German magazine "Hobby" No 18 printed August 1964 there was a comparison test featuring Fiat 2300 S and 230SL Pagoda!
Perhaps fun for you to read :D

Quite a trade from a Montreal to a 2300S 8) My very first car was a 1961 Fiat 1500S OSCA Cabriolet. One appeared  on BaT a couple of weeks ago.

  Hi Mike. I had decided to sell the Montreal prior to looking for a 2300S, sold it on BaT . I wasn't using it,and felt it needed a new home. No comparison between the two, of course, but the Fiat is a nice car.
