The Fiat Run is a drive in my Classic Fiat 500 dating from 1968 and
we are raising valuable funds towards Air Ambulance this lifesaving service both in Britain and Italy. The journey will include a visit to the 500’s birthplace, Turin and then on to Venice.
Meet Custard – she’s my lovingly restored 1968 Fiat 500L.
We met a few years ago when I found her abandoned in a farmer’s field in Cavallino in Italy and even though she looked far from her best, it was love at first site.
Several hundred Lira lighter and a long tow back to England later, Custard arrived at my home in Huby, North Yorkshire where she has since been transformed into the classic show car you see today.
She is quite rare and unbelievably cute so everywhere we go
people want to pet her.
Since her restoration, Custard has appeared at many Classic Car shows in Yorkshire and gained awards Cavallino in Italy. In 2008 she was on show at a Fiat showroom for the launch of the new
generation of Fiat 500’s.
Custard well deserves the title Bella 500 a beautiful little car.

The Yorkshire Air Ambulance charity's two helicopters provide a

to save lives.

We are also raising money for the Italian Air Ambulance wherever our Fiat is on show in Italy.
The emergency medical services in Italy currently consist primarily of a combination of volunteer organizations providing ambulance service, supplemented by physicians and nurses who perform all ALS procedures. The emergency telephone number for emergency medical service in Italy is 118.
