Back in the 70's, there was a short-lived deal. If you bought a new, loaded Chrysler (Caddy?), you got a free Simca. A free "car."

That's what all Fiat's should be. A value-added new car purchase incentive. The free toaster for your new checking account will be more reliable.

Pet Peeve: Value-added

Rear visibility hasn't been a desirable trait for automakers since the 90s when they started building cars with enormous asses. I blame Mitsubishi.

TALKING TO STRANGERS

I should compile these. Striking up a converstaion with someone you do not know at all can yield the most suprising results.

Last week I had to leave for work uncharacteristically early (6 a.m.)

I stopped at a convenience store to p/u a hot choc. On my way in, I held the door for a man about my age. He thanked me in quite a profusely appreciative manner.

Bob: It's not really that big a deal. You won't remember it by 4 o'clock.
Man: Damn straight! I'll be drunk by 4 o'clock!

Most surprising and probably most honest result.
