Fiat Or Ferrari .....






Taking a stroll around this weekends "Italian-Carnivale" amid flashy red Ferrari's
and cutesie Fiat bambinos

Take your pick!




I don't know how many miles this baby would get me up the highway
but I have to admit it made my heart sing.
Don't you just love that steering wheel  and the  combination of
 duck-egg blue and rust is a marriage made in heaven!

My grandmother had a Fiat like that. She drove it from Sydney to Melbourne over the mountains. Funnily just today I learnt that it did not have a synchromesh gearbox which means you really had to work hard to drive it.

I would prefer a Ferrari,Fiat 500 is a Traitional car in Italy, you couldn't see many on the road.

Old cars, especially old sports cars, have been a life passion, and I enjoy your photos. Great angle in these shots. I think that is a 308 Ferrari, now one of the least expensive Ferraris on the road.

The Fiat 500 looks like it has had an engine fire, not a great surprise. The car has always had its following so Fiat has introduced a new 500 to the US market. Hope they do well with it.

Did some work on Ferraris in the past, but owned a Fiat, one of the most frustrating cars ever built. Given the two, I'd take the Ferrari. More flash.

This should work. You can have the Fiat and I'll take the Ferrari.

Dianne said...

Thanks Jack ... You're so kind !

The Fiat because it's just so full of character, but the Ferrari because I'd like to get where I'm going without probs! What can I say, I'm a Libra, can't make up my mind!Love the reflections in the window of the Fiat!!

HAha! They say that only men with problems and women with long blonde hair drive red cars ... that lets me out on both counts!!

I'd pick the RED Ferrari any day. Great angles.

Wonderful shots Dianne! Despite being in what some might call "the autumn of my years", my heart would pick the Ferrari every time - but my pocket would say Fiat !! Lovely contrasts in every respect.

My mother drove a little fiat like that some decades ago and I have fond memories of it...

Lovely shots, Dianne. I like your cropping.
