Supercharged Maus: 1948 Fiat Topolino

The name Topolino means little mouse in Italian and is actually what they call Mickey Mouse in Italy.  The Topolino was named because the early versions have head lights that sprouted from the fenders like Mickey Mouse ears.  And this next one has an awesome set of whisker-headers to complete the mouse look.  Find this 1948 Fiat Topolino offered for $15,000 in Miami, FL via craigslist.
