I had a Fiat Multipla for a few years it was a brilliant car, way ahead of its time and really practical.
The look took a bit of getting used to though I grant you.

With me and my two daughters sat in the front row of seats we did get laughed at a couple of times and I'm still not sure why :?

For some reason I always seem to end up driving Fiats.
I've been talking about writing a book - 25 years of TEFL - for a few years now. I've got it in me.

Looks pretty hazardous to me. I sometimes dream I have to drive a car in heavy traffic, to the best of my ability. As always in such dreams, I never actually crash.

Well , you can drive but have never learned. I also have never bothered.
I nearly bought a Hillman minx convertible once! Thing is . I spent twenty plus years in the motor trade , cars and Volvo trucks.

On the whole, I'd rather be in Wallenpaupack.

But the DeLorean was a pretty cool car! And it took guts - and a lot of cocaine - to get it into an already crowded car market.

I know an appropriate song about that one (actually a whole LP):
