Got me, lol. I worked for 2 different LADA dealers and I almost said it was a Lada until I saw the grille. Sure hope the Fiat (Original) version is better than the Soviet-Era POS Lada/Volga was building.
Move along....all is well.....return to your homes.....nothing to see here.

I only knew it was a Fiat, there was one near where I grew up, seen it daily.
I'm real sorry to hear about the City Violation, I got one too when my rear axle was off, it really adds stress to an already stressful situation, then all of a sudden you're rushed and can't do things the way you want.
I'm glad to see you are winning. Best of luck Matt!

Finally filled the van up. Most of the tank was used pulling the Fiat and car trailer. Ended up with 11.3 MPG. Trans is still only allowing 2 & 3. I found a DIY conversion you can use to control the trans. I think I am going to try it out soon. I still have the trans from the G30 so if I screw something up I atleast have a back up.

Go to ~4:00 if you just want to see him drive it.
