The New Zealand story of the italian motoring icon the Fiat 500, which celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2007.
This is a picture driven history of the cars place in New Zealand's curious industrial landscape of the 1950s and 1960s, as well as its "life" - the racing, the owners, the excursion to Antarctica. It is an affectionate look at the fiat 500 in the market furthest from its native Italy.
There is a dual text in both English and Italian.
