I Love it! Very cool! And BTW, on any other forum I participate in, this would get flamed for being ugly, girly, wimpy, useless trash, etc... I love this forum.

Just imagine it with a steering wheel at both ends and swivel seats.

You wouldn't have any spare 500 parts.....like say a windshield for a '58 Nuovo 500

There's a 600 by me that I've been trying to get a hold of for a while, no 500's though.

Not a flat 4. Standard inline water cooled Fiat 600 four. These things are geared for pulling the weight of all the passengers, so top speed is not much more than 50 unless you swap in a sedan final drive. Chrysler invented the minivan my ass.

I don't care for the "Hot Rod" steering wheel & the rims, but everything else is totally cool!

This one is powered by a VW 1600 engine. It's nicely done and wicked faster than stock, but do you want to be sitting up there in a crash?
