Fiesta Italiana Car Show. That's amore!
I actually didn’t even know about this one until I saw a poster hanging in an Italian restaurant the night before. That’s why it wasn’t in my weekly calendar. And I didn’t really know what to expect.
The closest thing to either of those was a new Maserati Gran Turismo roadster that Aristocrat Motors brought in. The rest of the small display mostly consisted of Fiat 500s and Alfa Romeos. Rumor has it that there was a chase van hiding in the background with a full-time mechanic to ensure that everyone was able to actually start their cars and make it home.
Several of the new Fiat 500s were also on hand, and they really had a different look in this context. Normally when you see one, you think it’s the smallest thing on the road. But if you park one near an original Fiat 500, the new one looks downright bulbous. One of them had Gucci trim. Oh la la.
As you may have guessed, I snapped a few pictures from the car show portion of the Fiesta Italiana. You can see them in the slideshow below, or click this link for a little nicer version of the slideshow.
