Title: My grey 595 comp
Post by: superfurrynads on November 07, 2017, 11:13:39 PM
Hi all.
Here is my grey pocket rocket. It has the mta gearbox and soft top.
We love this car to bits, it never stops putting a smile on my face.
Thankfully someone makes cars like this because cars today are really dull, I grew up dreaming about Italian cars, if I won the lottery I would buy lots of fast Fiats, Lancias and Alfas. Just something about them. Abarth is a gold plated 100% legendary name, even under the ownership of Fiat. 131 sport, rallying Deltas, mental mental 037's just so so bloody bonkers. If I could have known when I was 18 thrashing my Alfasud 1.5 green cloverleaf around that one day they would bring back not only the 500 but Abarth too WOW!! I looked on ebay today and a sud like mine is on for 17000, I paid 350 for my cloverleaf and 120 for a rust free 1.3 left hand drive 5 door 20 odd years ago. Back to Abarth, brilliant car!!!

I know this is old, but I love the sentiment of your original post.

We are lucky there are still manufacturers who are willing to put fun above other nonsense  :)
