Danny from Fiat Fun “Guest Stars” at Roadster Salon
For nearly twenty years Roadster Salon has purchased parts from Fiat Fun in Connecticut. As our East Coast warranty station, Danny O’Donnell has become an integral part of Roadster Salon’s network of suppliers and support staff. During the pandemic, Danny has flown to Chicago on multiple occasions at his expense to provide additional help on our shop floor. A veteran Fiat mechanic with over 30 years of experience, Danny has been a valuable resource during these challenging times. His personal favorites are 124 sport spider models from the late 1960’s and early 1970’s. “I love the look of the original spider. Versions imported after 1974 have ugly, heavy bumpers and just seem out of sorts. Roadster Salon’s Lusso updates really bring the car back to its roots with much better reliability” Danny said.
This week marked the 10th Anniversary of Danny’s first “guest appearance” at Roadster Salon, filling in ably for our COVID depleted shop team. “Fiat Fun and Roadster Salon are like family. I love coming to Chicago and hanging out with the guys. They make me feel welcome and it gives me more appreciation for the complexity of their modifications and attention to detail”, O’Donnell said. “Looking forward to the next 10 years!
