The Fiat 514 Is Pure Pre-War Satisfaction
Vintage cars require serious but rewarding commitment. The pre-war variety, however, demand a level of commitment bordering on devotion. With parts nearly impossible to find and expertise becoming rarer by each day, living with and driving a pre-war car means intimate involvement in every aspect of your car’s maintenance and upkeep. Roberto Vesco has been collecting, restoring, and driving pre-war cars for more than 35 years, but the satisfaction and joy that he experiences as a result is unparalleled. His story takes place in the beautiful landscape surrounding Lage Iseo, Italy, near the starting point of the Mille Miglia in Brescia. This very special Fiat 514 has been a protagonist of this historic race on multiple occasions and has even placed first.
