St Alban's 500 run

On Saturday the 10th of October 14 IMSMC FIAT 500’s cavalcaded from Windsor to St. Albans (in the Wiseman’s Ferry Area).
The impact that these little cars have on the public and fellow motorists is amazing. the enthusiastic questions and comments, smiles and photo’s all in abundance. From the moment the first cars arrived at our meeting place, on the road and onto our final destination.

A spectacular Spring Day, in great company, driving the worlds sexiest car (as per recent survey motoring Magazine) is truly rewarding.
Upon arrival at Wisemans Ferry, our 14 Cinquini assembled on the punt and were floated across the Hawkesbury River. As we exited on the Western side of the river, onlookers all honking their horns in appreciation and good will. Naturally we returned the sounds of the cinquini!
Refreshments were in abundance upon arrival at the Settler’s Arms, where we gathered in the beer garden and enjoyed lunch together.
A special mention to Oriana De Iulio who drove the Family Cinquino for the first time. Some of the driving conditions were a little challenging as we crossed the metro, clocking up over 200Km. Well done Ori!
We look forward to the next opportunity, to grace the community with these fantastic, iconic little cars!
Viva La CinqueCento!!!
