Leave it to lawmakers to get political over an automotive icon. It seems two Italian senators want to make the popular, but high-polluting Fiat 500, above current environmental restrictions. Since many of these cars pre-date catalytic converters they spew more than normal pollutions. And as protestors of the new "Save the 500" bill like to point out many of the older models don't even have seat belts. Even though the 500 is widely cherished by Italians it's no rich man's hot rod. They're still owned and driven as everyday transportation. Fiat itself is cashing in on the love of the older 500s with a new concept that evokes past glory.
