    There other aspects to it. Gearing, suspension, weight distribution.

    The Abarth will be the one to watch to see if it's all "lipstick" or if it has the "cajones".

    I owned on of the original ones and had I not fallen in love with the MINI first, I would consider this car for the same reasons, retro, gas efficient and kinda cool. There were a lot of naysayers when the Countryman went into production, but look at them now.

    Given enough time, about 3 years on the last Fiat's sold here, they will be down to their 800 pound fighting weight thanks to the tin worm. :smile5: Hope they do a better job this time around.

    Dear god how does such a small car weigh 2,000 pounds? That is just plain crazy, that hard plastic must be heavy as well :) The area you see in the picture all around that speaker will be skuffed to hell and back in about 2 weeks.

    looks like it might be the Bob Boyd lot over off of Brice at 70, by Lindsay Honda (based on the crappy houses and street signs) There is a Bob Boyd used car lot there now

    No worries the Fiat people have to eat at Le Chatalane and someplace with cruisonts for breakfast. Our doughnuts and British pubs are safe, until China starts exporting MG's back to the US :)
