Three Toronto-area Fiat 500 Club members made the trip: Paolo Cargioli with his 1962 Autobianchi Bianchina cabriolet; Angelo Bucciol driving a 1953 Fiat Topolino; and Nick Cacciacarro with a 1971 Fiat 500. The drivers crossed from Toronto to Rochester, New York by ferry and continued on a six-day tour to the Boston event, which attracted vehicles from across North America. Cargioli’s Autobianchi was named Best Car of the Meet, while Bucciol’s Fiat Topolino took second place for Best Car and Cacciacarro’s Fiat 500 won the trophy for Longest Distance Driven.
