Yesterday a newspaper from Colombia (i think!) released a article about the "revival" of Fiat 126s in Cuba . Its totally in Spanish.. so , take out your dictionary or use a translator :)

Cheers friends.

A quick update on whats been going on during this months of 2017.

1 ) Did oil change on March, checked contacts points, fuel filter (wich i must change during this week, very poor quality) and prepared for a trip i made on April to Matanzas, wich is a province nearby Havana, around 90KM to be more exact.

2 ) Changed front tires for a couple of brand new BridgeStone 145/70 R12 and also cheek everything of steering mechanism, joints, etc. Everything smooth!

3 ) Bought some alternator belts and changed one i had for new one

4 ) Fitted new voltage regulator for alternator that i bought from Piotross over in Poland

5 ) Repaired starter engine with new brushes, cleaned everything.

6) Fitted new wheel (dont know if this is the correct word to describe this!!)

7) Bought a new battery in last december,28th!!!

So far so good. Car is behaving as it should, pretty decent power, excellent steering and brakes. Really glad of all of this. On my last trips, wich i mentioned above, the little FIAT behave excellent!! 300KM total mileage of trip and everything smooth as silk!

Planned next trip to Vinales, is a valley that is 190KM from here, excellent views, people and environmeng :). Will leave very early in the morning so can spend mostof the day over there and return at late afternoon/night. Of course, will prepare little fiat for all of this :)

Check ViƱales OUTT!!! Its amazing!!

Here are some pics of the car as of todat, April 20!

Cheers buds!!
