Hi, I'm Lisa and I just bought a 2013 Abarth Cabriolet. It's white with stripe delete and black cloth interior. Love this car!

The Abarth is actually my fifth Fiat; had a red 1980 fi Spider 2000 that we restored to factory spec (1986 - 1992) ; a white 1982 X/19 (1992 - 1996) and a F-P Production Fiat Spider, and F-Production X/19 that were raced in the SCCA Club Racing series from 1994 - 2000.

So, I guess I've got a soft spot for Fiats in general but I must say that the new 500 is such an excellent car; I ended up getting my Abarth after I was putting more miles on our son's new 2012 500 Sport than he was! "Mom, really... get your own!"

Congrats and welcome to the forum!

An obvious FIAT lover, great to see it continue!

Way to Go Lisa! My wife has a Pop for 9 mos. that she loves, I did not get to drive much. I just bought an Abarth for me.
Think she is getting hypnotized by the exhaust, she asked the other day if she could drive it.

Ha! That's exactly what's happened with our son. We took a nice drive out in the country this weekend and he got to drive the Abarth for a bit... Big mistake evil_laughter It's a slippery slope!

And thanks for the warm welcome - I appreciate it.
