a Miami insurance company CEO made the car he wanted, probably for a lot less than buying an original Fiat Jolly


Around 400 Fiat Jolly were made and the survivors have become collectibles in recent years, with top-notch examples selling for over $100,000.

But Diaz-Padron didn't just want to buy a Jolly for his collection, which includes an air-cooled Porsche 911, an early Mini Cooper S turbo convertible, and a vintage Mercedes S class. And he didn't want a Fiat. "I had an idea of doing this, but with a Volkswagen Beetle," he says.

When driving his car around the island he lives on, a barrier island east of Miami, Key Biscayne, he had so many people inquire about buying it, he made another and now it's for sale.
