It's Coming!

 
 
When I ordered my 2013 Fiat Abarth in September, they told me there were none in stock and they'd have to build me one.  They predicted it'd be ready by Nov/Dec.  I didn't mind the wait because they were building the car to my particular specifications and I don't need a car until it starts snowing (which is when I can't ride my motorcycles).
 
I've been getting weekly status reports from the factory where the elves have been hard at work.  Today, they reported the car is done!  All finished.  They expect to deliver it to me in about two weeks.
 
I can't wait to pop the clutch and squeal the tires.  And, of course, pose for pictures.

  9. Cool! Gratz!!!!!!! I have never owned a car. I like cars, but I don't like to drive. Funny huh. I like cars for the visual aspect and tech, but not for driving (I don't mind sitting next to the driver tho :D)

  18. I am just catching up on some of your posts, the "Things I saw today" one was awesome & Heartbreaking all at once! I had to stop and comment here though, because I am pretty sure Kyle is going to be drooling all over your car. He has a fixation with small cars, I think he was a clown in another life :P I can't wait to see pics of it when you get it, you are going to be so happy, I can tell already!
