Does anyone else remember that place on N. Saginaw St. (a car dealership?) that had a Fiat up on a pole? It was almost all the way up to Beecher.My mother used to have a little yellow Fiat, when I was a little kid, so we used to smile whenever we saw the one on the pole.
That little car is awesome, but there's no way those two giants next to it would ever fit inside.
Fiat stands for Fix It Again, Tony.
James, come on. My sister had a Fiat Spider that performed admirably. Although she also owned a Pinto once, so the bar may have been set real low.
Fiat will face some brand challenges, but if we hit $4-5/gallon gas, many americans will be interested in products like the Fiat 500 Google it), etc. At $1.60/gallon it looks like bad biz, but this might look like sheer genius in about 2-3 yrs..
Thanks for commenting. You might enjoy my book about Flint called "Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City," a Michigan Notable Book for 2014 and a finalist for the 33rd Annual Northern California Book Award for Creative NonFiction. Filmmaker Michael Moore described Teardown as "a brilliant chronicle of the Mad Maxization of a once-great American city." More information about Teardown is available at www.teardownbook.com.
