Fiat Freak Out 2009

Over the weekend I had the chance to attend the Fiat Lancia Unlimited (FLU) car clubs national convention called the Fiat Freak Out. What a great group of people. The FLU car club is made up of interesting and very welcoming club members.



Friday I checked out the autocross and Saturday I saw a great car show. The cars displayed covered the full range of Fiats from vintage 500s, 600s, Multiplas, OTAS', Dinos , 850s, 124s, 128s and X1/9s to Lancia Betas and Scorpions. A couple of Ferraris and a Maserati were in the mix, too. Newer European models like a Barchetta roadster, a 1999 Multipla and of course, the new Fiat 500s, one from Lane Motor museum and one courtesy of Chrysler LLC.


The Multipla was driven by adventurer Jim Magill all the way from Northern Ireland. You can read about all his exploits here.



Check out the Freak Out gallery above (there will also be a gallery link on my right side bar), lots of pictures in no particular order. Fiat500USA's YouTube channel will have videos posted of some of the autocross action (as soon as I figure out a windows driver thing).

Next year's Freak Out location hasn't been announced so keep an eye on the official FLU website here. If you like cars it's a show you shouldn't miss.
