So twice last week (maybe the week before) I saw new Fiat 500s driving around. Both were white with black rims and looked quite sharp.


The other day I saw a stunning red VW Karmann Ghia, and then yesterday evening a VW Scirocco (MK1 - my favorite).


It's been a good few weeks for car spotting

^I've seen a surprising amount of Fiat 500s out and about in Cleveland suburbia, a region that loves its excessively large vehicles. They are quite attractive in person and are definitely a stylish departure from the typical garbage I'm used to seeing driven around that area.

^^^There have been a LOT of Fiat 500's around the Metro-Detroit area. They're cool little cars, perfect for city driving. My friends mom actually let me drive hers and I liked it, keeping in mind a normally drive a MINI. Personally I would stick with my MINI, cause it seemed a little bit faster and just felt more...fun. That said the Fiat was a nimble little car, not the fastest to 60 but still could play around in 2nd and 3rd while on some twisty roads. Surprising amount of space too. The front 2 seats are comfortable with leg and head room, plus with the rear "2" seats folded a good bit of trunk space.

Other than the "cute" appearance of the two cars, I really don't see the Mini as a fair comparison .. it's more like a VW GTI in terms performance and handling, while the Fiat 500 (base model) seems more like a standard Golf. So yeah, I'm not surprised you enjoy the Mini more

Here's a sampling of my 2011 Forest Grove Concours d'Elegance photos.


04 Olds with its trophy!


39 Bugatti. Dad was real excited about this. It was used to help advertise the show.


A woody!


52 Muntz


55 Citroen


57 Cadillac Eldorado Brougham, one of my top favorites. Massive Dagmars!


But mostly I love it for the fins.


I have never seen or heard of this car before.


57 Chrysler Imperial...I guess my grandpa had one with a specialized record player.


57 Tatra from Czechoslovakia (which I somehow managed to spell right the first time). I always do a double take at the engine placement!




BMW 600


A Smart Car...I mean a 58 BMW Isetta.


Needless to say, I LOL'd at this 58 Edsel. And again at the picture.


60 DeSoto Fireflite...another of my top favorites. One of the best colors with some of the best fins. <3


61 Jaguar Mark 2...where are its spots? :p


61 Morris Mini! Aww...


NTAG was there!


64 Porsche


A bitchin...CAMARO! Dad said, "I almost forgot I had a car like this!" I said, "I wouldn't forget something like THAT."


71 Jaguar E Type


A Bentley


A NORMAL ELDORADO! These also have amazing fins. Obviously.


Por-SHE 911S. Yes, that is her name.


Studebaker with iridescent paint!

The Isetta Bubble Car looks freaking awesome. I want to find one somewhere so I can see how difficult it would be for me to fit in it.

Okay, so, the Pagani Hurahruh (Yes, I know it's spelled "Huayra") can't be sold in the US until 2015 at the earliest because it couldn't get an exemption for not having a "smart" passenger air bag.

I bought THIS:





Short history: This is a 1994 Mazda Miata M edition. It had some hail damage in the rear quarter panels, so the rear section of the car was replaced from a blue Miata. Basically I have to rattle-can it when I get it. Don't worry, the wheels will all match as well.
