Wicker seats, baby!

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

Shake, baby, shake, you know I can fit you in my arms
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

The Amazing Extendable/Convertible Tourist Bus – But the Wheels are in the Wrong Place?

Tuesday, August 23rd, 2016

How does this work – you take the roof off the back of a regular bus and then tack it on the back to make a super-long, semi-convertible bus?
