Those are actually on order. . . dealership covered the cost and installation do to a service f-up on their part. Should be in early next week. They were going to remove the decals, but since I was washing/claying/waxing the other day, I just did it myself.

The thing that really made me regret going auto for all of 15 minutes was (don't laugh) a test drive of a Fiat 500 Abarth manual the other day.

While my Challenger was in getting a new rim put on (another dealer f-up they had to cover) I took a 500 Abarth out for a drive and that thing was an absolute blast. I heard such negative things about the Fiats that I really expected it to suck, so I picked their top model and I'm not gonna lie, I wanted to take it home.

Quick little turbo charged 4 in that thing with an insanely smooth manual. What a fun ride. I'd buy it to thrash the sh*t out of it if I had the extra change lying around.

Haha that's funny. Sorry couldn't help it. Yea I'm starting to REALLY love the manual shifter. I want to get a short throw shifter now. I was messing around with launch control today and its so kickA$$.

Yeah. . . my launch control is weird. Always says "Launch Control Unavailable." Starting to make me wonder if the Cores have it.

And don't knock the Abarth till you try it! It's a surprising little car. Like a go-cart on mad crack.

Put them on the hood. IMO, the 392 badge would look BADAZZ on the hood scoop.

That is a holdover reputation from the 80's (FIAT=Fix It Again Tony). In the 70's, Ricers had a bad Rep....how about that Nissan 370 now? I lived in Italy from 93-97 and 2000-2005. I owned an Alpha Romeo (also undeserved Bad Rep). These little Italian cars are loads of fun. And they are very reliable now. Military guys did some "crazy mods" to the vintage Fiat 500's. Those are cool relics also. Wish I had one.
