Oh boy was it worth importing Fiat Uno/Panda
 
Btw not the best picture since I wached my smartphone agiant my house.. I wonder was it worth importing this Fiat Uno or is it Fiat Panda? I don't think these guys were sold in Canada. A few days ago on the 401..

Nope, those cars never made it to North America.
I believe the car was probably imported from South America or Mexico.

Thats a fiat Uno, and rob is right, due to the license plate placement it is NOT eurospec

Perhaps it was originally sold in Mexico? Weren't the import restrictions on Mexican used cars recently lifted?

I looked at the car when he was next to me, and the body was mint. So it's a Fiat Uno not a Panda... Hmm so was not a Uno one od worse Fiat models ever built? I doubt if these are worth anything in Europe...

Honestly, to be even more ironic, I had my SLR camrea in the car, so I could ve' snapped some good pictures of that car. I was just lazy and also there too many stupid/tired drivers on 401 to take a risk of being caught up in taking the photos. The owner was some dude in the late 30s. The guy already looked over at me because he could tell that I was eager to check out his car hehe.

I always wanted to ask this question to Canadian Italian. How was it back in mid 1990s when Japanese wiped out Alafs and other Italian car makers from Canada/Usa. Did Italian diaspora try to help by purchasing Italian or that played a very small factor, in better words they could do anything about it. I heard something as the cars often needed to be serviced than their Japanese counter parts. Honeslty, what is the truth?
