Got our Fiat!!

Dear Pod(Jay),,,
Just to let you know we finally got a Fiat. Opted for a clean 2014
500L Lounge 6-on-the-floor as our fun car and toad. Told you last year
that I would keep you posted re this. Man...what an engine this little
brat has! I have to really keep the turbo at bay when I'm out in traffic
by myself but for a car that weighs around 3.200 lbs...not too shabby!

My wife didn't want to get anything smaller so we compromised on the
L and it works well. Not the most comfortable seats and grabby brakes(don't
get me wrong...they will STOP you!), and gear One is hard to get used to...
but that being said the manual 6-speed eliminated a LOT of problems as far
as what can be towed, and not.

We've decided to pick up a new ACME dolly down in N. Carolina where
they are manu'd. I think I can handle the pro's and con's after studying
both systems and can end up towing for less than half the cost of 4-down.
Will let you know how I feel after I have to drive her up and hook her down
in the rain a few times...ha ha? The cost was a big factor, unfortunately,
in deciding all this, and the ACME EZE-TOW looks to be a solid-welded unit with integrated, surge-disk brakes. Only weighs around 350 lbs. and can be stowed on end where I keep the Solera(24S). So...we shall see. News
at eleven and want to thank you for the inspiration re the Fiat. Hmmmmm...now that the new 124 is out...uh...I wonder how that would look behind...er...never mind...damn... -Jay
