A long time ago...
Long ago when we were kid and fancy free, we drove this beautiful death trap - a 1972 Fiat 500. Her name was Dinky Donut.
I think of her sometimes, when I see original Fiat 500s on Instagram (where they seem to feature often) or the Ikea illustrations advertising home delivery. Those days were fun. And although people often say that classic cars are expensive to keep, we didn't find that to be the case. Classic car insurance worked out cheaper than we thought, and there is such a basic engine in one of these things that not much can really go wrong.
I can't imagine trundling the kids about in Dinky Donut. They'd love her, sure, but our needs are different now. I miss her all the same.
Have you driven a classic car? If money was no object, what would you choose?
