Fiat1100.net website visitors – where’s everybody from

I use the brilliant Statcounter to track visitors to this website. It never ceases to amaze me when I see all the different countries where people are logging on and visiting this website.

I published a version of this picture below back in May last year (here), but the range of countries has increased greatly since then as well.

To everyone, from wherever you are, welcome. Feel free to drop me a message to let my know your interest in the Fiat1100.

1959 Fiat 1100 Millicento

1959 Fiat 1100 Millicento

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”.

Through this website I’m keen to hear from anyone else who owns a “magic Millecento”, or from anyone at all who’d like to share their memories of this car. Please contact me here with anything at all to do with the Fiat 1100 – I’d love to hear from you and share everyone’s stories.

Please click on the About page to find out more of the site, what I’m hoping to achieve, and how I’d like your help.

Or just scroll down to read more.

Website updates coming in the next couple of weeks

It’s been a few months since I did the original work on the website, but I have some updates planned now over the coming weeks. I’ll be publishing some great e-mails received from some readers, and some interesting Fiat and vintage car related stories from newspapers and across the internet.

Remember, if you have a Fiat 1100 yourself, or any stories or connections with a Fiat 1100, or just want to share your memories of the car, please drop me an e-mail via the contact page. I’d love to hear from you.

New Road Test Added – Motoring Life, February 1958

Back in the 1950’s the enthusiast’s source of car news was the Irish magazine, Motoring Life. The Autocar and The Motor were around, but it was well known that they were never openly critical, especially of British cars of the time. 

I have just published the first section of my commentary on the Motoring Life road test for the Fiat 1100, published in 1958.

You can read that by clicking here.

I’d love to know your thoughts on that – come back here after reading the road test and post your comments.

Welcome to FIAT1100.net

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.
