Calling Mr Earwaker

Ann has just given me a copy of the history of "The Bambino", the 500s that were built in New Zealand as a birthday present. The last chapter in the book introduces various owners of 500 in New Zealand. It would seem that we have a hero in our midst! Mr Damon Earwaker---who has 2 whole pages dedicated to him and his cars--both in Australia and New Zealand. Step forward young man and take a bow.

The Australian cars are badged Fiat 500 where as in New Zealand (Correct me if I'm wrong) they are badged as Bambino's.

Bambino was the name given to the German version of the Fiat 126

Interesting. Definitely Bambina in NZ.

(I'm assuming this is an 'a' at the end?)
