Many people don't know how to drive a stick shift or simply don't want to, but that doesn't mean they don't like speed, torque and having a ton of fun on the road, particularly when it comes in a small but wicked package.

More than a year ago, Juan Manuel Rizzati (right in the photo) and Santiago Uranga embarked on a journey from their native Argentina toward the state of Alaska in a 1964 Fiat 600 model.
