      Sorry, I have been slacking guys, I have been giving priority to Facebook instead of posting pic threads here like I used to. It is just so easy to post to FB or email from my phone, I will get you guys some more pics, especially if I go to GTI International or Wörthersee (both of which are possibilities)

      At the Tesco in Basildon, Essex.

      He was at an end spot, I was standing on the much and there must have been a little gap there at the end cap, not enough to park anything though.

      I knew that we were supposed to get the Fiat 500, I think that Chrysler is even going to build them in Detroit, I didn't know that we were going to get Abarths, that would be pretty sweet...

      The Abarths are supposedly coming to the States in late 2011 or early 2012, now I just need to trick the wife into thinking she wants one...

      Would you believe that the owner of this car managed to find me on vortex and reach out to me to ask me to blur his number plates?

      I never understood why they are so concerned with that in Europe? If one that had cloned number plates was to be inspected by the police wouldn't they figure it out and wouldn't it be a big deal (criminally)? It is a public credential, everyone can see it publicly, how is its disclosure on the internet any different than when you park outside of a Tesco?
