Just putting the blonde in for that fried my hair unfortunately. No colors that require bleaching first for me anymore :(

I was so close to going to Anime Boston this year, my family changed Easter plans last minute.

Love the car. I rode in the back of one during a test drive and even that was hilarious, that that has one of the best exhaust sounds I've ever experienced.

Oh no don't worry I still have it. It is just not in great shape as far as being my primary vehicle. It's still in the driveway i can go drive it whenever i want.... thst it is not blocked in <_<

Hey you know what is great about the fiat? It is really thin and is hard to block in. Isn't that great.

I think the 500c Abarth is an excellent choice. These cars get a lot of flack that I, more often than not, find unfounded. The 1.4T is a fine little engine, they just don't like crappy oil or negligent owners that forget to change their oil. My wife and I thought about getting one as a commuter but I couldn't bring myself to get one in auto, though I'm glad to hear that it's not that bad.

Yeah I am a bit paranoid with the engine since it seems like the biggest thing that goes wrong. With my mechanic being so flaky (which today i found out is because he got a girlfriend :rolleyes:) it has been getting that Overpriced Dealer Service for now.

So apparently there is a Boston abarth club so I spent today on a fun drive from Seabrook to Portsmouth in NH. Also fun is getting there means taking rt 95 which is a fairly empty like 5 lane highway. Also I enjoy playing tag with Corvettes, but then I lost the other fiats for awhile for some reason. Then there was another Corvette later. A fun day.
