Just Had To Add Water …

Not that Petrol was too mainstream; the radiator had an unfailing tendency to boil over.     

This cute vintage Fiat 600D was my first-ever car, acquired by my dad sometime in 1979. At the time of purchase, it was 17 years of age and having pre-loved umpteen times already.  Nonetheless, I drove it to work in my first job at Motorola (Bayan Lepas FTZ F3) and proudly parked it at a prominent spot at the car park.

It had some quirky — or endearing, depending on how one looked at them — features that took some conscious effort to live with.

Water @ 10 miles per quart 
Petrol @ 40 miles per gallon
Engine Oil @ 100 miles per pint 

AIR-CONDITIONING :natural
