Wicker seats, baby!

Perhaps it’s tropponuova” to be called a Fiat 500 Topolino, but shoegazers are on my side…

Brake, baby, brake, taking me in with all you’re charms
I’ve never been inside you but you’re so alluring
They call you “little mouse” by name in Rome and Turin

It’s not that big:

The engine is in the back but on the right side, so you might get a little tippy if you carry around a heavy passenger. But that’s a small price to pay for owning this little cutie.
