Irish Car Of Year Axes Giulleta

The Continental Car of the year awards due to take place on the 25th November have nominated their shortlist.
Giulleta has not made it, which is a pity considering it's in the European shortlist.
Ah well if it wins the European car of the year, we will all have the last laugh!!

I'm surprised to see Toyota in that list. There's just no stopping them, it seems...

I dont know how they pick their cars but i know theres a lot of snooze-mobiles in there.
Fiat Uno, what a car! I remember being in one of them and it just burst into flames, what excitement! Them fire engines were something else!

Fingers crossed it wins the big one! It will give them a nice sales boost!

Both the 156 and 147 won it previously didnt they?
C'mon Giuiliuililiuil!!
