Walking around the back streets of an old Italian village is always a delight, and Syracuse in Sicily was no exception. I am always on the look out for the "little things" to photograph, and, being an admirer of vintage automobiles, I have developed a passion for vintage Fiats.
I spotted this one in a back alleyway, and although it was a bit battered and probably had seen better days, it looked like it was still in use, and was more than likely used for just local trips. I was told the Italians hang on to these for as long as they can, and they only require minimal maintenance. Plus they are easy on fuel consumption too.
Maybe we can take a lesson from the Italians and only use our cars when we really need to, and ease the congestion on our roads, no to mention the fuel savings and gas emissions (sorry, I got a bit "green" there!).
