Re: Fiat 500, a 'MOD' car for a new generation?

Well, I'm a confirmed Vespa nut & the 500 is my new toy as I sold my last couple of scoots a little while after my daughter was born (2 years ago) as they weren't really getting used. It took me a while to find a suitable replacement toy, but it seems to have hit the spot...

Paul Weller is a "revival mod" not a real one Think of The Who, Small Faces etc for proper Mod. Its a nice idea but no self respecting mod would be seen in a car so its a no!

Ah, but they only played mod music... real mods rode scooters, beat up greasers etc. Celebrity mods didnt really follow the scene...

I went on a few mod rallies about 8 years ago, IoW, Brighton and Scarborough, the only cars seemd to be 1960/50's british cars especially, Triumph herald convertables, def. loads more scooters
