A car related post – with a focus (mostly) on the tiny Fiat 500!
To experience driving these tiny little ‘sewing machines’ in Italy, contact me – we can arrange Fiat 500 days in Modica, Sicily also Rimini, Emilia Romagna.
These little cars put the purchase of a small car in the reach of many Italians families in the 1960s. Just like the Mini in the British Isles the beloved Fiat 500 made car ownership possible.
These cars continue to have an enduring impact on the psyche of the Italian nation. A favourite retirement hobby is the purchase and restoration of a ‘cinque cento’ in other words a ‘500’……
In terms of drive experience, they are tough, they are ready, they are engaging. Don’t ask me what’s under the bonnet but I think it’s basically a motor bike engine. Don’t try any steep hills!
