Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from Fiat500USA

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all!

In appreciation for everyone who has made popular, I am opening up my photo archives to the public. Currently the archive holds over 1800 pictures (and growing), and I am working on making the vast majority of them public for all to enjoy.

I will be adding these pictures over time (there are A LOT!), so check back often.

Merry Christmas to you too Chris and all of your family and friends!

I have not posted any messages yet, so this is my first. I have been reading your blogs for a long time now. I have a Fiat 500 Prima Edizione number 409 reserved and can hardly wait till it arrives. Your site has allowed all of us die hard Fiat fans to stay up to date in a way that would not be possible without all of you hard work. I want to thank you personally for all of your hard work, dedication and enthusiasm.

My first car was a 1974 Fiat 124 Special TC sedan. I have been a Fiat fan ever since. No other car has the soul and character that a Fiat does. Of coures I will admit that I am biased but I am not going to make any appologies for it either.

I am extremely pleased with the hard work that Laura Soave has done to re-introduce Fiat to North America. I would love the opportunity to meet her some day. I also believe that Sergio Marchionne is a genius. I pray that Fiat is successful with all of their plans for the future.

I would like to ask that all of the Fiat enthusiasts and all of the new Fiat dealers to be to work together for the common goal of making Fiat successful. Nothing could be better for the car industry in North America than having a successful and strong Fiat selling their cars along with the other manufacturers. Fiat was founded in 1899, which makes it one of the oldest car companies in the world and has some of the best technological achievements of any car company throughout its history.

Here is to the success of Fiat for 2011 and all the years to come.

Merry Christmas!

Thanks George and you're welcome! A 74 124 Special TC poster hung up on my bedroom wall when I was a teenager! My dad had a 67 124 sedan and I always wanted a twin cam 124 sedan. The closest I got was a 73 124 wagon.

Later, I worked at a shop where we installed a 2 liter into a 74 sedan. I also think we put a twin cam into a 59 1100 (can't remember, a loooong time ago!)

I agree with everything you said. Fiat has brought the world many technological advances, and they were all on cars that anyone could obtain and not just the well off.

Fiat coming back to NA is a great thing for all car enthusiasts.

Merry Christmas and have a great new year!
