|I like driving in my car|
If money were no option Ive always thought I would love to have a Hybrid so I would be more eco friendly but until now Ive just had to stick to running on unleaded and have always driven what my friends affectionately refer to as "owd bangers".

All this has changed recently. My latest heap (a KA of such ugliness and rot that even I found it hard to love) gave up the ghost and I realised that with some things buying really, really old is false economy. The money I was spending on getting this car to pass its MOT was actually not far off the deposit to buy a newer car which wouldn't break down constantly and only have one working door.

So the hunt for a car began. I wanted something small, economical and with low emissions. I didn't expect to get anything with retro styling (I gave up on the idea of a Figaro after realising that its backseat wouldn't fit my child in) and other than the new Minis (which I love but which were so far out of my price range) didn't really think I would get anything to suit my taste for all thing 1950's looking.I was resigned to getting something modern looking and ugly but which would get the job done and not leave me on first name terms with the AA man

|Betty and Fifi The Fiat|
As a hater of any sort of debt buying such an expensive item did make me break out in anxiety hives but now Ive come to terms with the dreaded "car loan" issue I'm loving my new runaround. Ive named her Fifi and she is simply the loveliest thing Ive ever driven.

I understand this review isn't really going to make Jeremy Clarkson lose any sleep but then as I stated quite clearly at the begining of this post I don't really have much interest in cars, however please join me in welcoming Fifi to BB Towers. Long may she drive her plump owner safely and greenly and with a little nod to times gone by.
