    Never been a fan of Hoonigan for whatever reason, but that 124 looks phenomenal.

    Watched Sara's hillclimb adventure in Mexico and thoroughly enjoyed the video. I will quickly change my mind about Hoonigan if they crank out more quality material like this and less burnout bro-off competitions. The bro vibe was still pretty strong with the video I watched but I didn't feel like I was losing intelligence. They do a good job of shining a light on navigators and the critical job of pace notes too. This gives me hope that maaaaaybe Americans will someday realize how freaking cool Rally is and it will be easier to find broadcasts of.

    As far as the new competition goes, I'd love to compete for stardom and a free FIAT if I didn't have the god given driving talent and personality of a dead fish.

    That's right your 2nd 500 was a prize right? I'm sure you've posted about this before, but, essentially a crazy amount of tax required as cash to accept it?

    We paid about 12k total in taxes...which considering for a fully Abarth cabrio is pretty cheap.

    Yep, cheap for a new car... very expensive for a "free" car. Also more cash than many people have on hand for home emergencies.
