It's an FSO and despite not running that well I'm off to Liverpool-ish to fetch it on Saturday. You guys had better be jealous!

God I wish! I'm paying possibly well over the odds but I love it and have always wanted one, can't imagine it will be particularly refined or good fun to drive but hey ho!

'Well over the odds' for one of those, crumbs what is that then? Must be into double figures.

They're actually not as bad as you'd think. I think they drive better than a Riva. Handling's not too bad as long as you don't go stupid and they feel solid and safe on the road. OK they're not the most refined car in existence and the switches feel like they're about to break off every time you use them, but they're not actively unpleasant to drive in the way that, say, a Lada Samara is. I think you might be pleasantly surprised - I was when I drove one.

Cool:) All the style of a Riva with the added rarity of being an FSO. If you get it running better and decide to sell it, pls make sure us shiters get a shot at it first :D I could be very tempted by this as like pandamonium I really rate the Riva experience 8)

Have you still got a Riva Torsten? If so can we have some side by side pics taken with the 125P ? :D
