WHY I LOVE MY FIAT 126

RACHELE TA­GART

Says Omagh-based Rachele: ‘My grand­mother owned a 126 which she gave to me. I learned to drive in it, then passed my driv­ing test in it, be­fore sell­ing it on – some­thing I al­ways re­gret­ted do­ing. I met my hus­band in 2009 and set about try­ing to track down my old Fiat, but it had dis­ap­peared. I re­ally wanted a car sold new in Ire­land and found this 1989 126 Bis three years ago; I snapped it up and chris­tened her Betty. She’s com­pletely stan­dard and has done just 32,000 miles. I love driv­ing her. I’ve only ever seen one other Fiat 126 in my life – I don’t think many were sold in Ire­land.’
