These days, when Americans think of Fiat, they generally think of the revived 500. That's a shame, because they're missing out on so, so much.

Take the Fiat 2300S Coupe highlighted by Petrolicious, for example. Owned by Pierantonio Micciarelli of Milan, the Ghia-designed two-door torpedo is a gorgeous testament to the brand's other offerings.

This may surprise you, given the country's love of wonderful automobiles, but owning a vintage car in Italy is not easy. There are sorts of rules and regulations involved, including limits on what time of day you can drive the car and where you can go. Awful, right?

While Micciarelli says it's not fun to pay the bill, he thinks the pleasure of driving it makes it worthwhile. I'd be inclined to agree.
