GEORGE M 1959 FIAT 500

FREE FIAT

I WAS 17 YEARS OLD AND JUST GOT MY LICENSE, I WAS WALKING HOME FROM MY THEN GIRL FRIENDS, NOW WIFE'S HOUSE, AS I HAD NOT BOUGHT A CAR YET. ON THE LAWN OF A HOUSE ON MY WAY WAS THIS TINY LITTLE CAR, THE 1959 500. GRASS WAS KNEE DEEP AROUND IT, AS IT HAD BEEN THERE AWHILE. I RANG THE DOOR BELL AND ASKED IF THE CAR WAS FOR SALE. THE WOMEN THAT ANSWERED THE DOOR SAID IF YOU CAN GET THAT THING OUT OF THERE IT'S YOURS. AND SO I DID.ME AND FAT MARTY PUSHED IT HOME. IT HAD ONE OF IT'S TWO CYLINDERS SPARK PLUG HOLES STRIPPED. I GOT A HELIO COIL AND A NEW PLUG, SOME FRESH GAS AND IT STARTED RIGHT UP. IT WAS THE COOLEST CAR I EVER OWNED. I USED TO USE A STERNO CAN FOR HEAT WHILE DRIVING IN THE WINTER. TONS OF GREAT MEMORIES, BUT NOT A SINGLE PICTURE.
