Re: Fiat Grande Punto Abarth
My cousin, let's call him Marc, mainly because that's his name, and because dickface wont display properly on here, recently took charge of a Punto. Before his latest acquisition he was a strict Seat man owning both the Ibiza and Leon in their various guises respectively. He rolled one and got banned in the other after being caught having consumed something illegal prior to driving it through someone's hedge. Now that his time off the road has been served, he decided, with a little help from various family members, to plump for something more sedate and user friendly. That's where the Punto comes into it. Now while i dont necessarily agree that the Punto is any less of a car than either of the Seat's, it has been a month since he took ownership and he hasn't put a foot wrong. It also, in his own words; "feels like a tug boat pulling a supertanker into harbour in anything other then 2nd gear", so maybe it is. But then i would be surprised if he knew what either of those things were, unless all that time off the road with nowhere to go had him watching the discovery channels every evening. It also has to be said that he is very fashion conscious. Just about everything he owns has the word Prada stamped on it, and he has admitted feeling more than a little silly, and to use his words again; "girly", while behind the wheel and seems to see people he knows a lot more often now that he drives his little Italian box. This, i pointed out, could be because he is driving slower - and sober - now, or it could be karma. You decide. From his point of view it is seriously uncool. From mine i would like to say sub zero but i dont dislike him that much, plus i never see him anyway, i voted for uncool to offer a little support.
Edit: Ha, what-do-you-know, dickface does display properly. Rejoice in a way that is most fitting.
