Actually it's a Fiat 600 in the background. A bit larger than a 500.
Again something else.

Anything is larger than a 500 haha. We call them 'backpacks' in Holland.

Thanks for posting Pawel. Too cold in Dallas at the moment to think about Gelato! Believe or not there are a few Gelato shops around here and a few are authentic.

About the same colors as my coupe. But I have the grey white and not the yellow white. I just finished overhauling the the door window regulators, vent frame and glass seals. Boy, what a job that is getting it all back and adjusted properly! It is a Shim-fest because of all of the shims and adjustments needed. One day, I will attempt the same on the W111 coupe.

My coupe is in que now... Two cars to go.

"Shimfest" or "Scheibefest" should enter our dictionary for short and efficient description of certain procedures related to our cars.
