    Whoa, that's so cool.  My Dad is definitely not cool.  In fact, I haven't seen him for a few years, and he never keeps in contact with me or his Grandchildren, he's that uncool.

    what model (number) is that - It's the same shape as a Fiat that my family had MANY moons ago (I think).

    Have a look at this (that's me, my Sister, Mum and Dad). Happy days  :D

    Sawbo, haven't seen that pic for a while.  It's a totally brilliant pic.  I'd definitely have it enlarged and framed on the wall somewhere  :thumb:

    Think it's a 595? I could be wrong, will ask my dad and get back, I know he use to race two different ones.

    I don't think it is a 595, it's also not a 500.
    Perhaps this should be in the "guess this car" post!
    Scud - Yep it's on my garage wall - I've got a notice board with my best photos, car show passes etc pinned to it. This is the first picture (they're in chronological order).
    This orange Fiat was brilliant - it had an ant's nest under one floor mat and a hole under the other that you could see the road through.
    It slowed down as it went up hills and we loved it!
     ;D
