I had a very brief chat with Sergio this evening at Maranello Fiat in a suburb of Toronto. He was very down to earth and perceptive. There was a great looking Nero Abarth there too. I wasn't 100% sure on the color that I ordered, but the car looked brilliant tonight. Simply outstanding.

Great. Did he say anything worth passing along?

probably, but it was in Italian! LOL

seriously, I've heard through my contacts at the dealership that he IS a very down to earth person....literally like the guy next door. I saw an interview with him on 60 Minutes this past weekend. only caught part of it but he was talking about FIAT's involvement with Chrysler, the bailout and all. then he took a very expensive Alfa roadster out for a test drive on the company's test track....on TOP of the factory! WAY COOL!

I would love to have the chance to meet him. :)
