Just an observation that I've been meaning to post.  A while back (4
months?) I was reading Road and Track.  There was an advertisement for the
Carroll Shelby Kid's Auto Art contest.  Perhaps you have seen it.  Look at
it again and look carefully at the list of sponsors.  Now, every one of
them, and there are many, sell cars in this country...except one.  You
guessed it - Fiat.  Now this poses and interesting question.  Why would they
help  sponsor a contest, with its resulting PR, in a country with no
economic benefit in the automotive field?  Very curious!
