Nice little display of a very popular little car. Fiat never really caught on in the US, but they are trying it again.

For automobile fanatics, this would be a little bit of heaven.

A rare find in any of our Saint Louis neighborhoods, although Fiat did start selling in the US last year after a long absence (a huge flop so far). I admire the Deux-Chevaux. It has both a great sense of humility and no sense of shame.

These were two of my favorite cars to see when I lived in Italy many many years ago, and then for the Citreon Deux-Chevaux (Which we Americans called "The duck") when I lived in Germany back in the very late 1980s early 1990s. Recently I was in New England where the new "Cinqua Cento" is a huge hit. Haven't seen any out here in the West yet though.

There is one of these little cars around my neighborhood, yes even away out here in Perth. I'm almost sure it's a French guy who drives .it, I love it, so much character. Lovely find here Ciel

A very nice display, this is probably the only case I will pick a Fiat against a French car.

Did I just read recently that "they" are going to be selling Fiats in the U.S.?

I would enjoy this little shop for sure!

P.S. I cannot stomach Bieber!

Intéressant comme vitrine. Je me demande si'il y a Beaucoup de gens qui ont besoin de coussins comme ça. En tout cas, ils sont chouettes.

@ Olivier : ça doit pouvoir s'arranger si tu écris au Père Noël versaillais (mais bon faudra attendre presque un an...)
