NYC Midnight Run #3

We took a run to kick off FIAT Freakout 2013, we had a few special guests, including a FIAT Multipla (soo ugly but so cool) and Fabrizio Vacca from FIAT Torin Design Studio(Really cool guy, very knowledgeable). Thanks to FLU and FIAT ITALY for making this happen. Greg (DIVS) was supposed to also be with us but ran into some technical issues and took one for the team!!!

We hit Central Park, Times SQR and Battery Park with plans for 3 other places but by 330am everyone was dead tired, some from the drive up, some from a late night Rollbar ;) install and one from jet-lag.

Awesome guys, looks like a blast! Wish we'd been able to be there, planning on next year hopefully.

Great looking cars, and just a side note, is that Cloverfield wreckage in the last pic?

Since you're in NYC, can you stop by the Men In Black office and ask them to flashy-thingy me after seeing the Multipla?

Great shots!

Your always more than welcome, we have them 2-3 times ayear, we try not to go during the weekend, too many people, in the winter its great at 1-2am the streets are empty.

Ill have them posted up shortly. I have them uploaded already, just need to post them. Thanks though!

It was EPIC, for a couple reasons, having an FIAT designer in the car (super nice guy), a multipla and lots of cars with great people from around the country, it was very cool and will be hard to top.

Paint chipping above the front the emblem.

I was in NYC last week for a vacation, didnt have my Abarth but should have met up you you guys for a chat.

I just had my issue fixed at the dealer and it started chipping after a 10 minutes drive.. They need to have a replacement, even adding in a small washer to bring the emblem away from the paint.

This is what I have been thinking since the first mention of chipping paint around the emblem, if I can chat with the body shop I may be trying to get a thin rubber piece behind the emblem before they re-install.
