Yeah, Clarkson liked the Abarth a lot. I believe Michael Schumacher drives an Abarth as his daily driver as well. Plenty of folks just think its a fun car to drive around in on the streets.

If I was shopping for a car right now I would definitely consider it. It would compliment the Z very well as a DD.

Had very full day today. Got up early at 4:30AM and headed out towards Great Falls, VA for the weekly Katies Coffee meet. It did not disappoint. Met several FIAT owners and went on a cruise through D.C. to the Iwo Jima Memorial, Jefferson Memorial and others, plus we stopped at "The Italian Store" and let the owners check out the FIATs as well as many customers. After a bit there we left and attended a FIAT event at the local FIAT of Tysons sponsored by the studio in coordination with the local D.C. FIAT group. Met some great folks, took a ride in an original 500 Abarth and had some great food!

Here is a link to a very large amount of photos for anyone who might want to check out the difference between an original 500 Abarth and the new one.

Nah, we're still MAZOC tried and true. However, we will be participating in some of the D.C. FIAT group events from time to time. They are actually a lot like the MAZOC in that they are not a formal group with by-laws and such, but just a group of enthusiasts that enjoy driving FIATs. Todays event in Tysons results in four Abarth sales as well. Kinda neat.

Yes of course. That was 30 years ago when FIAT was first in the U.S. Ever hear the one FOUND ON ROAD DAILY? Car manufacturers all over have improved.
