That is an advanced Italian lubrication technique! Oil drips out the
bottom so you never have to change it...you just top it off weekly and you've always got fresh oil in the pan. And as it drips out while you're driving, the oil in the airstream lubes the suspension, chassis components, and exhaust system which prevents them from rusting. See? Actually, the British invented this system and perfected it with MGs (trust me, I've had six of them) but the Italians adopted it for their Fiat sports cars.

NOTE: This is satire, and no offense to any nationality or nation's sports cars is intended!

Fiata! by Harvey Goranson #26305
That's a good looking model, Harve. Was there a 1:1 like that? (EOM) by John Kuvakas #26305.1

I read a comparison online by Harvey Goranson #26305.1.1.1
I think, from a lot of angles, that the Fiat looks nicer. I always liked the original by Rick Thompson #26305.
The current Fiat Spider is a Mazda Mata with a new body. by Robert Bolin #26305.
I had a 124 Spider as well, red with saddle. It was an amazing driver but upkeep was breathtaking. (EOM) by John Kuvakas #26305.
Down at your local Fiat dealer JK! Though this is a 2017, I doubt much has changed. (EOM) by Harvey Goranson #26305.1.2
The Fiat is just like a Miata except for the puddle of oil under it. (EOM) by Don Anderson #26305.1.2.1

Yes! I've had a few of those myself (EOM) by John Kuvakas #26305.
Had a 124 Sport Coupe back in the early days and it was one of the best cars I've had (EOM) by Tom Ciryak #26305.
I like it but I just picked up a Ford Fiesta ST. It's nearly as much fun as the Miata and is faster! (EOM) by John Kuvakas #26305.1.2.2
1963 Sting Ray Miata...it's a Rock Star! by John Kuliak #26305.2
If AC did it, I'd get one! (EOM) by Harvey Goranson #26305.2.1
If AC did it, it wouldn't have a Miata drive train. :-) (EOM) by Robert Bolin #26305.2.1.1
Ha! (EOM) by Harvey Goranson #26305.
I wonder what it would take to get it imported and legal on US roads? (EOM) by Robert Bolin #26305.2.2
Here's a pic of the Miata conversion by John Kuvakas #26305.2.3
