    Here goes another die hard FIAT fan. Proud to be on a site dedicated for Fiats. Hats off to teamfiat!!!!
  8. A very nice thread Arun. I feel most of us are drawn to Fiat is just not because they make very good cars but also because a lot of us have childhood memories of first car being a FIAT !!!! what say guys ??
  9. atulalvenkar: Very true. Many have sentimental attachments with Fiats in India. Looks like the history will repeat again in the next generation with Palio, Punto and Linea. :up
  10. Sujith, I hope so it does!!!!
