Never Had This Before!
« on: August 13, 2012, 08:45:44 pm »
Parked our Abarth up in the local retail park today.

Upon in return there was a greasy hand type smudge on the drivers window. Looking at said 'smudge' it looks like someone was shading their eyes to have a look in the Abarth  :o

The car was parked in such a conspicuous place they were obviously having a good admiring look inside!

Seem to get a lot of 'lookers'  ;D

Never had a car that attracts so much attention  :thumb:

    Lets hope it was because of attention and not someone looking inside if you have left any valuable things  :-\

    I once saw someone walk square into a lamppost as they we're too busy looking at my Abarth as they walked past.

    Thank god for dark tinted windows, don't think they'd appreciate seeing me point and laugh at them after :D
