Well I hated to say goodbye to the Rame Fiat sport. She was awesome, But the dealership called me KNOWING! I wanted a Rosso Abarth. So off I go to look at her, and Now she is all mine! I guess a name change is in order! :nod:
I had just finished detailing it Saturday after our storms here in Texas. Man! this car is a hoot!

Great contrast in machines. They both get in done, but different approach. Favorites?

Thanks all, being like Tweak, it is hard to say one over the other, The Abarth is used during the week to get to work, and take the long way home, I usually take the vette out on the weekends, to the hill country, and stop somewhere for lunch or at a winery with my wife. They are both a hoot to drive, they go about it differently. I have ALWAYS wanted a Vette, and when I got this one last year, I was thrilled. I bought the sport for my daily machine, but made the tragic error of driving an Abarth that day also. If this one would have never showed up at the dealership, I would be totally happy with the sport. But when they called me and asked if I was interested, It was a done deal. The vette spoiled me with it's firm ride, and awesome handling. The Abarth is quick and you know how well it handles, so I kind of get my "sport car fix" during the week.

Is this some kind of theme for Abarth owners being current/past Corvette owners?

Anytime buddy...you too - keep the pictures coming!



Now, how much easier is the abarth to park than a hardtop C5?

Tweak

Well the Abarth you can pull in to park, the C5 you are (as you know) better off backing into most places. I just realized I have way more pics of the Abarth than the Vette...lol. :cool:

Thanks all Robert, I could not walk away from this car! My wife loves black cars, her Veloster is black, I was really never a fan of red until the Vette came along. Now I am hooked.

Haha - I have tons more pics of the abarth as well...go figure!

Some cars lend themselves better to red than others... I see so few rosso abarths around here, which adds to the coolness of the color
