Documentation of the rolling restoration of my 1971 Fiat 124 Sport Spider

I bought this car in September of 2003 as a replacement for my wrecked 1970 Spider. It took me a long time to find the right car, as my funds were limited and I wanted and early small bumper car. I finally found this car in Houston, Texas with the help of the Houston chapter of Fiat Lancia Unlimited. There car was driveable, but very neglected. I decided to do a rolling restoration. That means that I kept the car driveable as much as I could while over time restoring different parts of it.
