My first Continental European car.

One that transported me around the South Island and took me up to the Bay of Islands in the North Island a couple of times. A 1966 Fiat Bambina. 500c.cs of fun!! The four stroke two cylinder air cooled motor was very reliable. It had an excellent heater, and to cool off in the summer one just flipped back the vinyl sunroof.

At the time of owning this car I was working for a motor dealership. A favourite trick of the mechanics was to carry the car away and park it crossways in an alleyway.
Later on I owned two other Fiats

A 1978 Fiat131 Supermiafiori TC

and

A Fiat 780 Tractor
