The Model: They say that necessity is the mother of invention, and no truer statement could be made about the Fiat 500. The first 500s were released to the Italian public in 1957, the product of post-war design. In order to sell cars post-war, they needed to be efficient and practical and as it turns out, kind of cute. The revolutionary design rethought every aspect of the car from the cabin to the suspension and springs, every component doing more with less. The somewhat forgotten economy car has recently seen a resurgence in popularity partially due to the re-release of the new Fiat 500.

 

The Car: The beneficiary of an older restoration, this Italian does show the signs of being enjoyed by its previous owner, it’s plainly clear at first glance there is plenty of life left in this micro. The yellow paint largely shows well with the exception of a couple chips from being on the road. While not a priority for a driver's car, the chrome does show some pitting. The inside remains clean and complete with complimentary brown vinyl seat that shows very little wear. The beauty of this little wonder is that it is mechanically well sorted and still serves the purpose it was always intended to. It continues to be a fun way to cruise around the city. If you want an enjoyable classic to scoot around the local car scene in, consider this the Fiat for you.
