Fiat 500 on Fast Track to America

While we were in Italy, Amy fell in love with the Fiat 500 and decided that she wanted one. Well, lucky for her, it's on its way to America!

The Fiat 500 is coming to America, and it appears to be on a fast track.

Richard Gadeselli, a Fiat spokesman at the automaker’s headquarters in Turin, Italy, sent an e-mail message to confirm plans to take the 500 — voted as Europe’s Car of the Year in 2008 — to Chrysler dealerships just in time for Christmas 2010. That’s barely 18 months away — just around the corner in auto development terms.

Too bad its going to be available in America - I was looking forward to accompanying Amy back to Italy to pick one up!

Merry Christmas to me! Should I get mine customized with the stripes of the Italian flag like this one??

Sara Quinn said...

Absolutely! I love the stripes of the Italian flag colors.

We've had those for years years here in the states. They were called Escorts. And before that they were called Pintos.
