Encountered this Spider parked along the Appian Way in Rome, not far from the Tomb of Caecilia Metella.
As I started to take photos, the owners hustled out of the nearby cafe to see what was going on. After explaining that I liked their car and owned an old Spider, we had a pleasant conversation. They both said that the car was comfortable and a pleasure to drive.
Interesting technical detail: this car has a diesel engine.
After seeing this car in person, I must say that it is lovely. That was not my previous opinion, which was based solely on photos. Not sure that my photos convey how nice this car looks in person either.
Work gets in the way of my hobbies. Nothing takes just 5 minutes.
