D'oh. This is why I shouldn't post past 1am.

Well, there you go. Even more astonishing how tiny this car was in real life and how small the model will be (or how large the 59 Chevy was, take your pick).

Here's two of my models, both 1/24 scale. At first I thought one of them must be out of scale. Then I found this photo...

Truth is stranger than fiction.   Both the current Mini and current Fiat 500 are larger than the originals.

Absolutely a real Fiat 500. They were that small.  That photo was from an eBay Motors ad selling the Fiat from a few years ago.  I remember being in Rome in 1968 and they were all over the place, they made a VW Beetle look enormous!

Yeah, it's hard to realize how small a lot of the old "mini" cars were - especially compared to today's standards.

Here is my daughter next to a Mini - look at the monster cars around it!

She's a cutie Erik! And she looks happy that you found her a car her own size!   :)

 

Hmmm... I wouldn't mind having an original Mini and Fiat 500.  I wonder if they'd both fit in one side of my two car garage?

 

BTW,  my younger daughter has a new Fiat 500.  My older daughter had to drive it for a few days last week and she said it was annoying how many people waved at her or commented on the car.  My younger revels in it!

As I said, my dad used to own an Austin Mini and will gladly tell anyone who will listen his thoughts on this. He'll also include the VW Beetle.

yet, as the box says "this car could seat comfortably four large British gentlemen or stout women". My dad was well over 6', 250lbs and my uncle is quite a bit bigger than him and it was true, they both fit comfortably in the front seat. I can't comment on the other two gentlemen (or stout women) though.

Seeing the red one bought back a few memories, an Aunt of mine, who, how do I say this .... was a lady of slightly larger bodied than the average person, had a red 500 back in the 70's, it was a sight to see her squeeze herself in it .... poor litlle Fiat

 

Talking of the 500, I just won one off eBay, it will be done in Positano yellow, which was the colour of my first Fiat, not a 500, but a 128 1100 c.c, which i managed to get a Lancia 1500 twin cam engine in there .....
