I am just fascinated by the little Fiat. Growing up, my best friend's family had nothing but Fiats, including a race car. I always stop to gawk when I see the 60's 500's, and the Abarth sounds like a hoot. Unfortunately, my wife took one look and decided it was ugly. She wants the Audi TT, which does make sense considering all the black ice and snow she commutes on.

I'll get to play with one, though. I plan to rent an Abarth for a couple of weeks when I go to the UK for the Isle of Man TT (hoping to rent a Triumph bike for the time on the Isle, though). I wonder how long it will take to train my left hand to operate the shifter...
