Hi guys, Joined the Fiat Family on September this year after a long hard search for my dream car a "Red" Palio Sports, so I thought it's about time I joined the forum. My love for all things Italian began since I was a child; ogling away at Ferraris, Lambos & Maseratis. That love strengthened when I started cycling seriously on a Italian Steel bike. The love grew more after I sadly lost that one in a crash!!! have come a long way since then.....today I have 2 Italian stallions in my stable of bikes, an Olmo & a Cinelli. So when it came to getting my first car it had to be Fiat, cause that's the closest Italian motor I could afford . So when someone was willing to let go of this Palio Sports I was more than happy to grab it. Though the earlier owner didn't quite take good care of it, I'm yet happy to own it & give the LnC its been longing. has been quite a while now with my Palio & I enjoy it to the fullest! I find an uncanny resemblance in Palio's character & handling to my 2 Italian Bikes(like a dream )... intimidating poise; built for speed but effortless cruzing; stable yet nippy when you want it to be; eats it's way thru corners and a bit quirky at times too . Guess that's how the Italian love their rides, be it a car or a bicycle! Have done quite a few miles with the stalion in the last 3 months & have done quite a few trips too. And will shortly be leaving for another trip to Triambakeshwar today! Hope to catch some of you in person in the future meets!
