Fiat Ducato

I met two nice people from Germany driving this Fiat. They have been here 6 months traveling and are leaving next week to go back home.

Re: Fiat Ducato

I had a chance to speak to them for a few minutes before taking the pics. An interesting fact he told me was that 80% of the RV's in Germany were Fiat. He also told me they was about $10k cheaper than Mercedes.

Re: Fiat Ducato

I remember when Fiat was an acronym for "Fix it again Tony". Now they own Chrysler....

Re: Fiat Ducato

Good looking rig... but why does it say "Car" on the side?

Re: Fiat Ducato

Another acronym: "Foolish Italian Attempt @ Transportation".

I'll pay for this post since my wife is part Italian.

It's a clever Italian mind-trick to make the van stealthy, allowing you to park wherever you want since people will think it's just a car.
