My first post so hopefully this goes right. I thought id share this photo of me and my father and I with our Abarths. My first experience with Fiats was on Top Gear and always seemed to be a neat car. I was at work one day and we drove by the Fiat dealership down the road from were I was working at the time. When I got home I called my dad to see if he wanted to hang out and check out these little Fiats. His response was a chuckle and "Iím already at the dealer ship" I was at first looking at a Lounge I was doing my research when they announced the Abarth I knew then that that is what I had to have. Iíve been enjoying mine for a little over a year now I have loved every day. I will say the only thing I had a problem with is when ever my dad and I would go some were it had to be my car and he had to drive. Ok so itís not that big of a deal he's my dad and a good one at that. But as of last week we have found the solution in the purchase of his own car.

Welcome to the forum to you and your father Frank, seems the best decision possible was made to resolve the problems with him always driving your Abarth. :cool:
