I was making plans to check out this blue beauty located 450 kms away from me in Ottawa when the seller casually mentions that it has rust in the “Lower rocker panels, driver floor pan , front fenders, chome.” Now I don’t know if I really want it.

It’s a fairly rare 1971 Fiat 124 Spider with bizarre minivan-spec hubcaps that runs and drives for $2,500. I usually see these trade for $5-8k and I wondered what the catch was. Now I know. What does oppo think? I really want an early (pre-75) Fiat 124 but they’re so hard to find. Anyone got a welder they’d reccomend?
