Default last week's daily driver

Spent last week in Sicily and this was my get-around- a Fiat mini bus. Not sure what made it so cool: the 2.0L turbo diesel, five speed, seats 7 comfortably (big on the inside, small outside) or the fact that it was rugged enough to drive all over the side of Mt. Etna.

You're talking to m2cupcar all wrong... It's the wrong tone. You do it again and I'll stab you in the face with a soldering iron.

Actually not that far off. Padre de Familia (in law) was visiting his roots and celebrating his 75th. We made home base at a place called Arathena Rocks south of Catania in Giaridini Nixos. Good deal even though the dollar is week- ~$100/day with two meals, view of Etna from the balcony, pool and snorkeling in the Med right out the back door... but I gots my connections

Didn't have much time to enjoy the scenery. Had to visit 30 hotels in 6 days
the weather was excellent then though.
We didn't even have time to go through my town (Trapani, which is my last name aswell)
