Bona fides

During and shortly after my FIAT 500 was delivered, I talked about them incessantly to anyone and everyone I could find. People would stop me in parking lots and I would evangelize at length about the car.  They would ask me all sorts of questions.

Yes, it's Italian.  

No, it's not a Mini Cooper.  

Yes, it can seat four people.  

No, there's not a dealership here yet.  

Yes, it will come in lots of colors.

No, it's pretty economical.  I get nearly 40 miles to the gallon.

Yes, I'm aware of what you think FIAT means, but younger folks haven't heard those tales and will probably jump at the chance to buy one.
