Description - Fiat 500 and 600 by Malcolm Bobbitt

Fiat's 500 and 600 models are amongst the smallest cars in the world, yet for all their diminutive proportions they are chic, fun to drive and capable of travelling marathon distances. Both cars follow in the tradition of the 1936 Topolino, the original miniature Fiat that helped put Italy on wheels, and have allowed millions of families world-wide to experience the enjoyment and independence the motorcar affords. The water-cooled 600, along with its smaller sibling the air-cooled Nuova 500, were engineered and built to withstand the hard wear and tear subjected on them by Italian drivers. Happily many examples of the Fiat 500 and 600 have survived to provide exemplary use."The Essential Buyer's Guide to the Fiat 500 and 600" is, in effect, having expert advice, pocket size! Intended for marque owners and novice enthusiasts alike, Malcolm Bobbitt's practical and easy to follow book will allow the potential purchaser of one of these highly practical cars to confidently and quickly assess a vehicle as to its true condition. The guide equips the buyer to take a professional approach when viewing a car, and to decide within fifteen minutes whether it is worth taking a longer and more detailed examination. This guide provides all the information and advice necessary to embark upon an hour-long appraisal of the car, and to judge whether it is the right vehicle at the right price. Featured in this guide are specially selected illustrations to help properly evaluate a potential purchase. Information on the Fiat community, such as marque specialists and clubs, is given, along with all the cars' vital statistics.This book covers all models in the Fiat 500 & 600 range to include the unique Multipla and the 500's latter-day successor the 126. Not only will it guide buyers in making the right choice of car, the information imparted will ensure enjoyable motoring and satisfying Fiat ownership. Packed with 100 new detail pictures and with a unique points system to score a potential purchase, this book is a must for any potential small Fiat owner.
