    This is THE event of the year! FIAT will once again be the title sponsor. You never know what might happen at FreakOut. In 2010, we got first orders of the Primas at FFO. And the banquet and raffle prizes are great too. You might even go home with some goodies from 500 Madness!

    The organizers of the event have asked us to help spread the word about this fantastic event. We have participated in the Fiat FreakOut in the past by traveling down to Nashville and ended up having a fantastic time and meeting many friendly people.

    This year we will once again assist with sponsorship and prizes.

    If you are planning to attend this meet up event was set up to help spread the word, help people organize caravans and meet up in route to or at the event. Many, many people will be in attendance from all over North America (and maybe South). Most will not be on this meet up page so do not judge the attendance by this page. We simply set this up to help spread the word about the already planned event and help people stay in touch.
