Re: Fiat 500 Sport "Alpha Bravo" Project by TRIBE

After all that hoopla and nonsense we ended up with something that looks like it was created by the RetroRides Area 52 guys. What a let down.

Re: Fiat 500 Sport "Alpha Bravo" Project by TRIBE

It's just occurred to me that the snow board holder is a complete cluster bomb of mistakes!

1. It covers the rear lights
2. doesn't look like the boards will fit in covers - therefore leaving your pride and joy to the elements
3. The board will get covered in road grime and dust on the snow side . I know several snow boarders and they get tetchy about anything that could come into contact with it that isn't fresh 2' deep powder snow! Even their dry slope boards get waxed and lovingly polished. This would be the ultimate sin.
4. I imagine the snowboard on the back will reduce over all MPG's - although state side so I doubt they care

I like what they've done with paint and lowering from a looks point of view but I completely don't get why they've tried to combine that with adventure sports.

1. you're right I am jealous, but only of the fact they've got enough spare cash for the project.
2. Well into early 30's now and I do think that most youngsters need a hair cut. I'd also like to ban anything that makes a loud noise unless of course I am making that noise.
3. Thank you nicest way to call it
4. You got it
5. Damn right

Meh.

Lose the stupid front bumper, and the boards and lower it further you're on to a winner. With all the PR BS tho, it's a fail.
