The Fiat 500 (either the old ones or the new one) is the car that usually comes to mind when someone mentions Fiat minicars -- but that wasn't always the case.
The Topolino is the earlier Fiat minicar, and they made a ton of them over many years.
But you shouldn't be fooled into thinking that they are all the same. Take a look at two Fiat Toloplinos that are currently for sale on the Prewar and Postwar car sites. They are both Fiats and they are both Topolinos -- but they are very different.
It is with sad feelings that after 18 years the Board of Directors of the Microcar & Minicar Club have decided to close the Club.
With retirement, changes in personal interests, and the ever increasing difficulty of supporting a vibrant active national club using solely 100% volunteers, the Board has decided it is in everyone’s best interest to disband the club.
All members in good standing will have the remaining balance of their paid dues refunded.
We wish to thank all of you for your generosity and support of this great hobby over these past 18 years. Owning, driving, restoring, and best of all, communicating with our members from all over the Globe under the large umbrella organization we called "The Microcar and Minicar Club." has been a joy for all of us to have been a part of!
We would like to personally thank each and every one of you for your support over the years! Much was achieved during our 18 years of existence. That success was only possible from great enthusiasts such as yourselves! We can't thank you enough!
