In 1972 I purchased a 1960s FIAT® 850 coupe that was imported. It was red and the most fun car I’ve ever driven. I loved it. When the 500 became available in Spokane I bought the third one they sold, and I love it. Good mileage and fun to drive!D. McCarthy
Our car needed a few days in the shop. We rented a FIAT 500 to get around while our car was in the shop. After the second day we dropped into our local FIAT Studio on the way to a family dinner. We drove out with a new 2012 FIAT Sport.
After I was in an accident, I was waiting on the insurance to pay out so I could buy a new car. In the meantime, I decided to rent a vehicle. When they pulled a FIAT 500 to the front for me, I nearly passed out from emotion. It was the cutest thing!
Well, I fell in love with it and after that, I had to have one of my own. It broke my heart to turn it back in. Nothing felt the same. I test drove a lot of cars and eventually settled on a competitor, but in the back of my mind all I wanted was a FIAT 500. After three months of driving a competitor’s car, I knew I absolutely had to have a FIAT 500. And then I saw the one! A yellow FIAT 500 with black racing stripes. I nearly ran over the median pulling into the Studio lot. It was love at first sight!Do you have a FIAT story of your own? Share it with us!
