2012 Fiat 500 Sport: Mickey Mouse Pedigree

When I pretend to work, I take a breaks after long hours of staring at images on a screen... by staring at other stuff on the screen. Often that takes me to bringatrailer.com. There you can find all kinds of off-beat, interesting cars that people have a strange fascination for.

It was there I saw a 1953 Fiat Topolino 500C Convertible. It's remarkable to see a direct lineage of a vehicle from nearly 60 years ago to our current long term Fiat. It shares a lot of the same shape, dimension, and character. Kind of like a kid having grandpa's nose.

Definitely worth a look with plenty of images. Any fan of Italian automotive history will definitely be happy.
