So I had my first Fiat 500 sighting a couple of days ago, near Fairfax and Wilshire. The car was red, the same color as our test car. It was being driven by a tall, burly guy who looked like he could have been a high school football coach or a contractor.

Sometimes big people look silly driving really small cars -- a taller driver behind the wheel of a Smart Fortwo, for example, tends to look like he's been stuffed into a clown car. But that wasn't the case with this guy and the Fiat. The car didn't strip him of his dignity while he was behind the wheel.

Hooray for dignity.
