A unique vehicle, of which only one specimen was made that was recently auctioned. The Fiat 500 C Missoni Edition differs from a normal Fiat 500 C by its exterior, which has a decoration inspired by the works of the stylist Angela Missoni. The colorful design is combined with geometric shapes that make it clear that this is not a conventional Fiat 500 C.
The interior also received changes, with new upholstery matching the look of the exterior with materials assigned to the occasion by Missoni herself. Garage Italia Customs manufactured this vehicle with the aim of donating it to be auctioned to help a good cause.
The auction of the Fiat 500 C Missoni Edition was recently held in Milan, Italy, where the AIDS Research Foundation held a gala event where an anonymous bid paid no less than 50,000 euros for this Fiat 500. A sum that would seem absurd if the money were not fully earmarked for AIDS research.

Given an opportunity to go wheeling’ or talk wheeling’, the FJ Cruiser Trail Teams will do in a second. Whether it is crawling along the edge of a cliff, racing through a muddy bog, or even pounding the desert sand dunes. Due to popular demand, the Teams have decided to create events of their own: Invitational and Expeditions. The Invitational have provided a rare chance for regular folks to bring their own trail-ready Toyotas and join the Toyota Trail Teams on all kinds of off-road rides. Even those without a Toyota are invited to come along and wheel in the Teams modified and stock Toyotas. In May, over 220 Toyota owners attacked the jagged San Bernadine Mountain Range at the first ever Toyota Trail Teams Invitational in Big Bear. In July another 200 or more dropped in on the Badlands Off Road Park in Attica, Indiana to have their way with some of the most challenging muddy trails ever seen. It was extremely insane off-roading action at the Second Trail Teams Invitational party and the next invitational should be no different.

The Invitational are big off-roading parties, but the Trail Teams Expeditions give Toyota FJ Cruiser drivers a more intimate and remote type of hot wheeling. Usually, 8 or more soaped us Toyotas are selected for the three to four-day adventures. The first East Coast Toyota Expedition just recently completed their trek along North Carolina’s Outer Banks. Making their way through sand and swamp, these adventurers experienced nature and wheeling’ in a way few others ever will. It was an amazing run time for everyone involved. If you are interested in being on a team, there are three teams to choose from – The East Coast, The Central and The West Coast – they all crisscross the country in their Tacoma’s, FJ Cruisers, and Tundra’s, joining with other Toyota 4×4 enthusiasts from their favorite online hangout spot the FJ Cruiser Forum. The trial teams are for guys with mud in their veins, it’s well worth it in order to spend their days hanging and wheeling’ with other dedicated off-roaders Currently, the Toyota FJ Cruiser Trail Team can be found rolling down a back U.S. highway on their way to kick butt at another one of America’s favorite 4×4 trailheads or any place in the great United States that needs to be explored by a fun and powerful off-roading machine. Want to come along for the ride? Don’t worry the 4×4 community always has room for one more off-roader and one more big wheeler.
