Recent Image of Your 500 Out in the Wild.

I don't see enough pictures of Fiat 500's out on the road on this Forum. There are plenty from many of the more recent contributors which I always enjoy looking at and restoration progress is always interesting to see. But I don't remember ever seeing photos of the cars belonging to some of the more long-standing members.
It would be good to see recent images of your car if it is able to get out and about.

Ok not quite out in the wild, but the kids love it when I pick them up in little blue.
Today we had to do the food shopping too. So it was both schoolbags in the front boot, and three large shopping baskets in the front seat on the way home. Itís a tardis!

Re: Recent Image of Your 500 Out in the Wild.

We have to remember I think most of Peters (Fiat500) posts are photo-shopped...
I simply cannot believe that all the beautiful places he post and makes us envious are all in Scotland....
I see no rain or midges in any of them...
I suspect next there will be one near Loch Ness... with some strange mythical creature poking out the water...

But I do love his pics and any showing a 500 out and about...
They make me want to move there....

Re: Recent Image of Your 500 Out in the Wild.

I've Photoshopped the sunshine out of today's photos (that's what I mean by "recent").
I went up north to a place called Trantlemore, which is not far south of the very northern coast of Scotland. So the round trip was a touch under 240 miles, with the last 65 miles home driven in the dark down the busy A9.
The car still never fails to amaze me as it zooms along our Highland roads. I retraced our route along Glen Loth where I took a photo in the snow a couple of years ago.

The road surface is incredibly bad for a council-maintained highway. I'm not complaining as hardly anyone without a four-wheel drive vehicle uses it....except me but there is grass growing in the middle high enough to polish the underside of the sump, sheep graze and sleep on it and the surface is covered in their droppings, with regular potholes and whole swathes of tarmac slipping sideways in places.; but what fun to drive on.

As the sun went down it briefly peeped out from behind the clouds.

Re: Recent Image of Your 500 Out in the Wild.

Some extremely interesting images of a beautifully presented Wee Beastie have come to light. This is Tom's @the hobbler car, which, after me being a bit naughty and nagging him, he has permitted me to show.
I hope he will add to it by giving us the juicy details. I've seen a video of the engine and it looks and sounds as good as the rest of the car.

I like the colour. What a joke that looks with your oversized, US. parking spaces.

Re: Recent Image of Your 500 Out in the Wild.

Wonderful, almost satirical shot! I'd forgotten how big US cars are until that pick. The 500 is small here but not hilariously so.

I had the great pleasure of catching up with Tom and his car a few weeks ago, it is indeed an absolute beauty!

Re: Recent Image of Your 500 Out in the Wild.

My car was used at my sister-in-law's wedding in September.

The bride arrived at the church in a vintage Rolls Royce, and I took the groom and best man to the church in my pride and joy.... I'm pretty sure we smiled a lot more!
