What a great video, very inspiring!
I’m currently restoring my own 1969 500L and wondered what colour your car is? It’s a gorgeous yellow, is it an original fiat colour?
Just seen this in 2016 for the first time. What a joyous life affirming video, all I can do is mirror all that has been said below. What beautiful people Annetta and her husband are.
Thank you Petrolicious for your policy of re-highlighting outstanding videos from your ‘back catalogue’ I know that some subscribers complain about this, but please just ignore them and carry on.
Its a wet very windy and miserable Easter holiday here in the UK but you have just introduced such a powerful ray of sunshine into my home.
I really enjoyed this fantastic, inspiring video. As a father with three girls I love to see women enthusiasts featured. Fascinated with automobiles from childhood; I have spent the past twenty five years as BMW and Porsche mechanic and still get excited about what new challenge or reward the days work will bring. My wife and daughters are vintage car enthusiast as well. I am a very lucky man indeed!
I absolutely adored this video, it’s such a wonderful production, and it lets Annetta’s enthusiasm show through beautifully. The car is a joyous little piece of history and engineering, and it’s great to see someone enjoying it properly.
Could you please identify the first tune used in this video (in the garage/driving off scenes), as it captures the 60’s mood so nicely?
What a beautiful attitude to car ownership. It is fantastic to see that such a lovely little car is in the hands of someone who loves it so much and takes on the character of the time. The attention to detail is a credit to the both of you. Thank you for putting a smile on my face 🙂
What a beautiiful story behind this little yellow Luigi. I like Italian cars a lot. I hope I can drive such a lovely car later. Thanks Annetta and Petrolicious for making this video.
Thank you for being the star in this video! We love how it turned out, and the feedback has been all very positive. The only “hate mail” I’ve gotten has been from people in the market to buy a Fiat 500 who complain that we’ve just driven the prices up 🙂
Wow, this takes me back to the mid 90s while in college I drove a beautiful 1970 VW Type 3. My now wife and I would get all dressed up just to take a ride up to the mountain and back. It so special when a can can transport you to a different place and time.
It seems unlikely now that I’ll ever have a 250GT Lusso, but many years ago my family did own a Positano Yellow Fiat 500D and this video so makes me wish I still had it!
That squeaky clean garage floor is highly suspect, though.
what a charming video !
happy car indeed.
how could you not have a smile on your face with this little beauty
I thought you wouldn’t be able to top the 250 Lusso video, but this one comes surprisingly close. Very cool car and a beautifully shot video. Hey maybe the perfect video would of had the Lusso and the Fiat in it?
Thanks, Matt! Just goes to show, there are so many interesting and inspiring connections between people and their vintage cars.
Just a fantastic video with a perfect music selection. I can’t imagine how you could not smile and feel happy after seeing this one. Great job guys.
I love it. Wow every week you guys make me want a different car. Thanks and keep them coming.
