    Smile Chris from Fiat500USA Welcomes You!

    Hi folks, I thought I would introduce myself (finally) to all of you.




    My name is Chris and I've been a Fiat enthusiast since 1972. That's the year my Dad brought home a Fiat 124 Sedan.

    Until then, I didn't pay too much attention to cars, more into tank and airplane models and I thought US cars were the best and foreign were not as good. That changed when I read a book called "The New Fiat Guide," written by the legendary automotive writer Jan P. Norbye.



    In this book, he stated the design and experimental work on the Fiat 124 would have been worthy of a car costing $10,000. Intrigued that a car company would care enough about its customers to offer the best in a car costing $1,500, I wanted to learn more about the Fiat company.

    Years later, when that 124 Sedan was rear ended on a highway with me in the back seat, and I emerged without a scratch, I became a true believer in Fiat and the value of excellent automotive design.



    That inspired me to major in Transportation Design in school and work in the Automotive industry for the past 30 years. While in school, I worked at an Italian car repair shop and have driven and owned many Italian cars.



    Throughout the years, although I've been lucky enough to have access to many cars, I've always preferred the cars from Italy.

    The combination of performance and design suits my automotive taste which I'll sum up as: "No Boring Cars!"

    With the introduction over (thank goodness), let me say that my goal is to be able to contribute useful information here and let people have a voice to express themselves in a respectful way, hangout and enjoy.

    By the way, Fiat500USA.com has a lot of the answers to questions posted here about the 500 and currently has nearly 3,000 Fiat related pictures, which you are welcome to, just remember to give credit when/where you post them.

    I look forward to the discussion!

    Best regards, Chris

    Woah, nice! I like how its now a full width forum, rather than the version set out at Nabble so when viewing images, we aren't forced to scroll, just to see the entire thing, which should be nice!

    Looks great. Glad to now have the ability to jump to the new post(s) in each thread.

    Note: The maximum size of your custom image is 500 by 100 pixels or 9.8 KB (whichever is smaller).
    Can you increase the filesize a bit for signatures? The dimensions are fine, but 9.8 KB is pretty small.

    Questions and MORE Questions

    While I have managed to get the new Whiz Bang to actually acknowledge me and allow me to post, let me ask if you have initialized the "Garage" which is where we can post pictures of our 4 wheeled darlings. I see it, but it doesn't drop down anything to allow you to manage or create a 'Garage'.

    Also, I prefer the 'Chris 2nd Save' black background white letter, similar to the departed Nabble color scheme. Is there anyway to set that so when I log in it will automatically switch to that configuration?

    Hi SeaDawg,

    I'm still working out the details on the Garage (it's a really neat feature) with my programmer. Good question on the color theme. I believe there is a way and I'll see about that.
