We love to hear your fondest FIAT® vehicle memories, and we’ve gathered a few of our favorites. Don’t forget, you can share your FIAT vehicle story with us over in the FIAT Story Booth. Who knows? Maybe your story will be featured in our next batch of favorites. You can see some of our previous favorites here. Leland Morgan

I was stationed in Italy from 1975 to 1980 with my family. I was in the Navy. We were actually on the island of Sicily. We had a red FIAT® 500. We lived in a local apartment that had 12-foot ceilings. We went out at Christmas and bought a real pine Christmas tree in one of the local villages.

We tied the tree to the top of the car, put our two kids in the back seat with our groceries from the navy base and from the local stores and carefully went home. When we got home and put the tree up, we found out that we had slightly misjudged the height of the tree that we should get. Remember that I said the ceilings were 12 feet? Well, the tree was so tall it was bent over a couple of feet where it hit the ceiling. But, the 500 had NO PROBLEM getting it home. Best car I ever had.

Nothing better than the open road. Got to love summer!

My husband and I purchased a FIAT® 500 in September, 2012. Loved it from the day we got it! In May, 2013, we drove it from San Diego to Newnan, Georgia, round trip. All in all, we drove over 5,000 miles. Had plenty of room, felt absolutely secure on Interstate 40 and enjoyed the whole experience.  Best car we have ever owned! Plenty of sunshine in San Diego to drive topless; at least the FIAT 500 is topless! Fun, fun, fun!
