Well aren't we in a jolly good mood lately? What's up with this substitute of a Barbie car in the front of my porch? Are you trying to get me mob lynched (with pitchforks and everything) by my redneck neighbors?
I take it you're not very familiar with the US... southerners feelings about man-love and other such things, like the women emancipation. My neighbors only know about moonshine, trucks filled with either hay and/or relatives and shooting squirrels for food.
I like it here and wouldn't want people to think I'm one of those metrosexual foreigners who drive on scooters and wear sunglasses at night. Because that is the exact impression I would leave if I were to drive this tiny Italian car on the roads near my farm. I know, it's a bit unfortunate, especially since I understand this is a pretty feisty little car.
I didn't get to actually drive it, nor get near it for that matter, but I managed to knock on a poster of it in the safety of my own home. That's how I found out this Abarth is actually pretty fun to drive and it's not such a bad car.
Yeah, well, that remains to be discovered by my fellow Americans after the 500 officially arrives in the US. My bet is that they won't be selling many of those in Alabama, Tennessee and the likes, but maybe that's just me. If I were to still live in Europe, I would have probably considered this Abarth for a weekend car, but under these circumstances... I won't go near it.
I mean, it looks cute, can really go when you press that accelerator and as far as I know it doesn't use that much fuel. Plus, it's got those nice scorpion badges everywhere around it, and I love scorpions. I even have a couple as pets. Still, considering where I live now, this is obviously not a car I could drive around here.
