Fiat 500, Rome

Fiat RomeI’m a little late getting around to this sketch. This was a car I saw when I was visiting Rome last year, and it amazed me. The reason for my amazement was that it was an exceedingly beat up example that was obviously still in regular use. Where I live (in Toronto, Canada) one typically only sees these cars in one of 3 states; 1) in excellent condition, on the road during the summer, 2) in the process of restoration, or 3) rusting away on flat, powdery tyres.

It was great to see this one. I think I liked it even better than the many pristine ones I saw in Italy.
