This website is about my car, one of the few surviving examples of an almost forgotten family car that was popular in Ireland from the late 1950’s to the mid-1960’s.
It is also about the FIAT 1100 in general, known as the Millecento, and referred to in Fiat’s advertising of the day as “the magic Millecento”.
My name is Dermot MacShane and I am the owner of the FIAT 1100 that is the focus of this website, Fiat1100.net. The car, SYI 67, was purchased in 1959 by my father and has remained in the family ever since.
One of my main reasons for setting up this website is to try to find anyone, particularly in Ireland, who may have a similar Fiat 1100. I’m very interested in hearing from you to share stories and information.
I’d also love to hear from you if you’d like to share any memories or stories that you may have about the Fiat 1100.
Finally, I’d also be interested in hearing from anyone who may have any stock of spares for the Fiat 1100.
If you match any of those categories, please check out the Contact Page and drop me an e-mail – I’d love to hear from you.
