I fell in love with the 850 Spider back in 1970 when I went with my Dad to pick up his new 124 wagon at the showroom. It was that unfortunate brown color, but I didn't care, this was the car for me. We had many FIAT cars when I was growing up: a 600, a couple of 1100s, the 124 and a nice little 128 3p that was my brother's in high school. Sixteen years ago I finally fulfilled my dream of getting that 850 Spider and now have my new 500 to share the garage.
When I was in college I drove a new white FIAT 128SL with a red all-vinyl interior. It was the first front wheel drive car I ever drove. It was a really beautiful little car.
When I first saw the 500 online and the news that it was coming to the USA, I knew I had to have one. This past spring I purchased my red 500 POP w/5 speed. I love the car, the handling and the comments I receive.Tina Sutton
I have a 2012 Abarth, and it is the most fun of any car I have ever owned. My plates are CIAOBAB, and I love driving up and down I-5 in Washington!
