I saw an article in a car magazine two years ago talking about the relaunch of the FIAT 500. I fell in love with it. I cut the picture out of the magazine and hung it on the wall in my office. I started searching the web and read up on everything I could about the car. A few months later, when the studios started opening, I drove two hours to one to test-drive a 500—and I loved it even more!
Finally, about a few months later, I was enjoying my two-hour drive back home in my very own FIAT 500. I named him Enzo and I was the only person in my area for almost a year to have one. We got a lot of attention at first because not many people in my town have seen a new FIAT 500. The greatest part is that everyone who knows me calls my car Enzo. He has a personality of his own!
I have always been a practical person—sometimes to the point of boredom. When my 15-year-old sedan was beginning to show its age, I knew I needed a new car. I saw the FIAT 500 in a public display area surrounded by velvet ropes. I don’t know what came over me, but I was compelled to cross the velvet barricade and sit in this beautiful automobile I swore was calling my name.
I am now the proud owner of a mocha latte FIAT 500 and love every moment I get behind the wheel! I’ve evolved into a liberated, sassy, adventurous person since my FIAT purchase—always ready for wherever the roadway leads. I’ve been told the car was tailor made for me and my personality. Who knew all of this pent-up zest for life was stifled by being overly practical? I LOVE my “Bella Macchina.” Viva sempre!!
This past February, my 10-year-old son and I participated in the Florida Gumball Rally, a two-day driving event across Florida. We had a chance to get to know great people from different states and visit awesome places across Florida, but best of all, I spent valuable time with my son while driving the best car I’ve ever owned, my 2012 FIAT 500C.
