I saw my first FIAT maybe 10 years ago. It was this little red car that would cruise my street when my mom was taking me to school. I told her, “I want a car like that!” every time we saw it. I spoke with the owner several years later and he told me the maker of the car: FIAT! So I looked online and saw that they would soon be releasing the FIAT 500 in America once again. I was very excited to think that I might actually have my very own FIAT 500. I found a studio that was close to my hometown, and made a deal to trade in my old car to put money toward the purchase of a new FIAT 500. To make things even better, I got it custom wrapped, and now I have a pink FIAT 500, my dream-come-true vehicle!

In 1981, my mother traveled to Italy with a family friend, Emma, who was originally from the Tuscan town of Pistoia. I was traveling on my own, but we had agreed to spend some time with Emma’s mother, Sofia, at the family villa just outside Pistoia. We met at the train station in the resort town of Montecatina, where a friend of Emma’s was waiting with his FIAT “Cinquecento.” Emma and my mother had enough luggage for a summer’s stay, while I was traveling with only a carry-on. All four of us and our luggage piled into the 500 for the long ride to Pistoia, stopping along the way to pick up pastries and treats for our host, Sofia! Great automotive memory! No wonder I love the new FIAT 500!

My wife has liked the FIAT 500 since they relaunched in the USA. She drives 26 miles round trip each day to work. I decided I no longer needed my car for business so I visited our nearest FIAT Studio. I received a great deal on a FIAT 500 Pop. The car was waiting in the garage when my wife came home from work. She didn’t have a clue. I am so glad she has the FIAT. She loves driving it and loves the gas mileage. She even lets me drive it when I am not traveling for work!
