Re: FIAT Mk2 Punto HGT

Uncool.

I say some cars try "too hard", but the HGT didn't try at all!

It was nowhere near special enough...and nowhere near good enough that it didn't need to try to be.

Apart from the really basic model, all mk2 Puntos are sub zero. So much style!

No offence, but performance is unimportant to me. The HGT is a mk2 Punto, and therefore, very cool.
