Old Fiats


There a lot of the new Fiat 500 cars showing up around Toronto but while I was out wandering I discovered these 2 old beauties in front of a local car upholsterer shop. I stupidly didn't look at the back of them for a logo but I think they may be the Fiat 500 Berlina from the mid 1960s. They are so cute and perfect for bopping about town!

Cool find RedPat!
They are beautiful in every detail!!!
I had seen a black one in Argentina, but it wasn't so preserved as these 2 beauties! :)

A matched pair! - it's finding the unusual that makes wandering worthwhile.

LOVE the Fiats - both these and the new 500s!

I think they're cute! But I think they were not known for their reliability back in the day. Hopefully the new ones are better.

Like identical twins - I know, 'cuz I'm a twin! I would have hugged both of those cars!

Do they have pedals?

They look great for city traffic but I'm not sure how I'd like driving one on the 401. :)

They really don't make them like they used to, do they?
