Those rims look like the ones off of a BMW that I gave to Cam for his Kei Subaru pickup truck, they look nice, I like them.

Let him drive the 510 a few more times and he'll be sold on it! :)

Kid,

I was checking out the photos of the Fiat
The wheel wells are perfect for the kind of wide rubber that a dime owner can only dream about.
The dash is perfect with the full compliment of gauges. The wheels are classic Italian. Although wider would be better
And engine has the potential to be a work of art. Tubular exhaust, dual overhead cams ( the covers would look great polished out.). The distributor cap is classic. Add a set of dual side draft webers and the engine is complete.

Just my .02

The wheel wells on this car are made for wide tires. He actually just ordered a set of rims for the car. The look like Wantabes but have the little Arbath scorpion on the center caps. Should be here later this week. Ill post up some pics when they are in.

PMK,
In the the same complex where I got my car painted one of the guys who has a shop there has a real nice 124 sport spyder.
Ernesto painted his car too. He has the "wats" - "Panasport" style wheels with the Abarth scorpion center caps. Very nice.
He also has a really nice MG Midget.
Cars from that era are just pain cool!
