Re: Hallo Aus Deutschland!!!

My 1958 500N was originally that color. Hopefully it will be again. Great looking car.

Getting a "new" car

I've already got two Fiats, one Mini, a Vespa, a Mustang and a pickup truck so this time I'm going for something different. Today, I picked up a Trabant wagon. I'll have photo's of it soon. The car has a great history. The only current problem with the car is that it's in Bulgaria and I'm working on...

Re: Picked up Abarth tonight

Any day now I'll get a call from Fiat of Birmingham telling me to come get my Abarth. Until then I'll be working like mad to make room in the garage. It's a good thing my current 500 doesn't take much room.

Re: Abarth Test Drive Wanted

Why won't a dealer let someone test drive a car?

Re: Abarth?

The Fiat website has the 'build an Abarth' tool up now, but still no word on when it will hit showrooms.

500 coming home

My 500 is coming home tomorrow. It's had no brakes, which only slow you down and reduce mileage anyway but sometimes are nice to have. I also sealed the fuel tank which was rusting from the inside out. It has been epoxy lined now (much cheaper than a new tank.) next up will be to sort out the turn s...

Re: FIAT Advertising Now a WIN!

What I believe would generate interest in the car would be Fiat actually building it and selling them to the public.

Re: FIAT Advertising Now a WIN!

Didn't Fiat learn with JLo that using celebrities in ads just polarizes the buying public?

500 brake problem

My 500 is acting strangely. When I apply the brakes, the pedal goes to the floor and I need to use the handbrake to stop. There is no fluid leak and the system is bled. Has anyone experienced anything like this? I'll be checking all the wheel cylinders next.

Re: Monday road trip

Cars are female. I put a deposit securing an Abarth they will be allotted. Details and options will follow when the dealer gets more info on it.
