Since Dr. C. and I took my car to NYC for our daughter and her family, I have been wondering what kind of car I will get when I get back to the US. Unfortunately, some of the best cars, aren’t sold in the US, so I’ve been taking photos of the ones that have tickled and intrigued me and I thought I’d share.
I know that Italy is famous for Ferrari, Lamborghini and Maserati, which are all out of my price range, and I’m really not interested in any of them, except to appreciate the design and the look.
The Fiat Cinquecento on the other hand is one of my favorite cars, but they aren't practical for me, unless I bought the 500L, but it’s style just doesn’t speak to me like this one does!
There are lots of car brands that are sold here, that we never see in the states. Peugeot, Renault, Citroen, and Opel don’t appear on car lots in the US. (Some would say that’s just as well)
|this is a Nissan Qashqai (what?)|
|This one is called a KA (like in The Jungle Book)|
Other brands that are sold in the US, have different configurations in Europe, and they are kind of fun to see, but we can’t bring them back.
I had been driving a rented VW Tiguan Diesel while I was here, it was fine, but didn’t really make me swoon. I suppose when I get back, I’ll probably get the same car I had before, just a newer model, but for now enjoy the slide show.
|The ubiquitous Smart|
|This is a Leon|
|Lancia (I'm convinced that is Italian for junk)|
|Cinquecento L (4 door)|
|This is a cute little three wheeler that is used for carting things up and down hills here in Italy|
