Somewhat hilariously though... it almost feels like a waste on public roads? I really need to find local groups that do track days. The beetle sucking had an interesting trade off: I could push far enough to see the limits. The max speed the bug can take a corner the abarth can shrug off. There is something real fun about that too. I'm glad the beetle is only worth like 5$ so I can justify keeping it lol.
Oh hell yes. Track days are the best.

Glad to hear you're doing better health wise, Kat!

Nice car too. I see millions of 500s every day but Abarths seem to be fairly rare over here. Keeping the Beetle indicates a level of automotive masochism I've not seen in anybody but myself... :oops:

Back to using my feet, bicycle and the bus.
Ermahgerd, I sort of drift away from the forums for a few months (busy with life yaddi yadda I know) and suddenly a katwalk appears. Hiya there! o/

Hey. I have only been back like 2 days so you didn't miss much of me 😂

I missed you guys. I am glad when I googled on a whim I found a still decently active forum.

Well, it wasn't looking good for quite awhile there... I think Alex put a lot of his last burst of energy into getting things back up and running for us, and ensuring that everything was set up to continue without him.

Yup, if you're near enough to the warehouse, you can even do ground shipping and get it the next day.
