If Your Mini Cooper Car is Too Big to Park in San Francisco, Consider a Fiat Cinquecento

Tuesday, August 3rd, 2010

This cream-colored 1968 Fiat Cinquecento (500) L is just the thing for squeezing into parking spaces that are just too small for your new-jack BMW Mini Cooper.

Get a 500 and models will come visit you at your country estate and you’ll get all kinds of attention. Plus, this type of car was the subject of 500 (Shake, Baby Shake) from Lush, back in the day, so there you go.

The “L” stands for lusso (loo-ssaw), which means luxury, of a sort. (If only it had suicide doors…)

The nickname is bambina, but some people call it topolino, little mouse.

Shake, baby shake.
