Hello Guys,

My name is Vinnie, and I live in Miami, Florida. About 8 months ago, I ran across a lovely 1995 Autobianchi Y10 Igloo in Italy, where my parents live, and I just had to rescue it from the crusher, and it is currently in my father's garage waiting for me to ship it over once it officially turns 25 on January 27th, 2020. I was able to visit it about 4 months ago when I realized that I had made the right choice. Driven by an older lady, barely 60,000 miles on the clock (100,000 km), not a spec of rust anywhere on the body. I hit the jackpot. I can't yet post pics on the forum, but as soon as my 5 post limit is reached, I'll post pics.

She has the original 1108 from 1995 which I shall go through extensively in Italy, and will maintain unmolested throughout her life here in the USA, as I want to keep her original, as much as the 1108 can be solid, but sometimes temperamental, and knowing spare parts can be hard to come by.

If the Y10 comes through no worries, I might be interested in bringing over a Cinquecento Suite for purposes of tinkering with a 1.4 500 Abarth engine swap, while the Y10 stays as a daily driver.

So, here I am. I heard there is a Cinq floating around this side of the continent somewhere, along with a Tempra and a few Pandas; but I haven't yet seen any Y10s come over. Hopefully mine will be the first of many!

Take care, guys!
