Pink Fiats...Pink Fiats...Pink Fiats on Parade
I couldn't resist it -- stealing a version of "Pink Elephants on Parade" from the Disney animated film, Dumbo, and performed by the Sportsmen. (The song was also covered by Sun Ra, but that would be a different story.)
A pink Fiat 500 is, of course, far from an elephant. And this one was on display at a fair in downtown Basel last week.
Since there has been so much speculation of the Fiat 500 coming to the US, based on the recent acquisition of Chrysler by Fiat, we may soon be seeing some of these cars hit our shores. (Maybe someone should suggest pink Fiat 500's as an ecological improvement over the traditional pink Cadillacs that Mary Kay Cosmetics used to award to their top sales representatives.)
