For those of you that don't know, I have quite a crush on the humble little Fiat, in particular the 500, and especially the Abarth. Imagine how I must have felt coming up close with an Abarth for the very first time. Words cannot even begin to describe what I felt when I first laid eyes on this beauty. I had the sheer pleasure of coming face to face with my 'crush' a couple of months ago, when I attended my first ever classic car show at the Footman James Classic Car show, which is held annually here in Manchester. To say I was excited, was, and still is an understatement. Definitely a highlight of this year for me.
