Thanks for your comments Simon, Murat and Andy. :)

This is one of the older issues from Aa and therefore not that expensive to start with ( in relation to the prices of the recent issues), but I also think that there aren't many of the GTVs left out there for sale now. Or have Aa re-released this one?

These pics are actually 2 years old, but I never got around to post them here... and then Photobucket happened... ah well, you know... :oops: :roll:

Anyway. This is the kind of model I really like to collect these days, quirky and far from super/hyper cars. I think charm is what attracts me most nowadays when looking after model cars. Not that I have bought my last super car but you get what I mean. Here is the...;

Fiat 500 Giardiniera, 1960 (Norev)

The backseat neatly folds, impressive room for stuff considering it is a small car (even in 1:1) :)

A handsome little car. Even in 1:18th scale it can easily go beside 1:24 cars without being bigger. :lol:

Very charming model Johan. I agree that these "everyday" cars can be more interesting than the supercars (unless they are on a race track!)

Great buy Johan, and I love your pictures. I agree that the 500 is more interesting than most supercars.

Thanks, unless they are on a race track, AND you are behind the wheel. :lol:

Thanks Tom! I felt a little rusty editing pics again, got back in the old pace quickly though.

Thank you, it is hard to not like the 500, it has so many features to like. It is cute for starters.
