Car: First KC Fiat in 28 Years Sparks Harrowing Flashback


The eagles have landed…

For the first time in 28 years – most of the ’80s, the ’90s and well past the first decade of Y2K – a new Fiat was been sold and delivered in Kansas City. It went down around 10:30 a.m. today when chef Jasper Mirabile helped peel the wrapper off a 2012 Fiat 500 Prima Edizione in front of Jasper’s Ristorante, clambered aboard and sped down 103rd Street in Watts Mill.

Fortunately, Mirabile’s virgin victory lap was less eventful than his previous heart-pounding Fiat fling…

"Oh yeah, back in the ’90s I wrecked one," Mirabile says. "I was at the Medici Winery in Italy with my brother Sam, my father and myself. And we pulled up to the winery and my father said, ‘Pull up to the gate.’ So I drove up and I was a little nervous  and I drove it into Lorenzo De Medici‘s Rolls Royce. I was shaking so bad, and I went in and told them what I’d done and it didn’t even bother them. We drank a fabulous bottle of wine and I ate the best wild boar I’ve ever had in my life."

As for the Rolls – eh – merda happens…

How the new Fiat 500 drove: "You know what? I’ll be honest with you," Mirabile says. "I had imagined that it would be uncomfortable because in Italy, it’s not the most comfortable car and it was a little hard to drive. But the new one is very comfortable and it really hugged the road. So I guess they’ve adapted it to the way Americans drive. And everybody was looking at us. Especially because we drove right by all those car dealerships. They were all out there looking at us."

    Looks To Me
    You know the more I look at these Fiats the more I think a bunch of Mini Cooper’s and Kia’s had sex and the Fiat is the result of it.

    Seriously ..
    .. stop it with the Fart posts.

    Your obsession is sad. No one gives a %^&* about a Italian clown car.

    Hearne do you really dress like that?
    Or is it your costume of the day. Wow! Freaky…

    Laurel and Hardy
    Where’s your derby?

  6. bschloz says:

    Wow…SUV’s will be left at the side of the road now……..Altima’s and Camry’s now Gas Guzzlers…..
    This new spike will probably not end well
    Hearne & JJ WINNING
    OFF to co-sign a Yaris for son….really!

  7. smartman says:

    Based on calculations done on my Jethro Bodine Super Ciper Ring it appears that if Hearne were to lie down and extend his hands above his head he is longer than his new car. Where can I get a wrap like that. I want to be a Fiat 500 for Halloween this year.

  8. Hearne Christopher says:

    Hey, at least there was some sex involved…

  9. Hearne Christopher says:

    Thanks, X Man.

  10. Hearne Christopher says:

    He’s dropped 50 Lbs. And with no surgery

  11. Hearne Christopher says:

    Who said that was me?

  12. Hearne Christopher says:

    Loaned it to you, Rogger Dodger. So we could join forces and become the 3 Stooges

  13. Kellys man says:

    JJ heard about Your Run in with Glazer on Dare
    Hey we have one thing in common, I hate glazer and so do you JJ. What the f happened with you two bad boys? I know you are a dago and so in Nigro, who I will see tonight, I hope, so you guys stick together. I ate at your old joint about l5 years ago, loved it. Haven’t been to the new one. Why you hanging with Hearne? If you want to get the Glazer I will help you.

  14. Bad Ass Jew, Berkowitz says:

    In Shape to Fight The Glazer
    Yes, JJ is almost in shape to face off with Glazer. I heard all about it on radio, I think Johnny Dare. Love to see that battle. Sorry JJ, I think Glazer would win the match, but hey love your food.

  15. Toco Time says:

    Funny photot
    Ones too fat and ones too tall.

  16. Maureen says:

    Cute Car Boys
    I like this car! How much for with everything on it Hearne? I do think its more of a car for ladies though, like me.

  17. cowboy says:

    Miss Jaspers
    One of the few restaurants other then Winsteds and BarBQue I miss from KC. We spoke several times JJ, you have wonderful food. What happened with you and Glazer. I thought you guys were pals?

  18. Good Person says:

    Two Hoods Fighting
    Two hoods going at it, I love it.

  19. MrBrown says:

    Craig G not even trying anymore
    Man these are three worst transvestites Craig has dated so far

  20. Hearne Christopher says:

    You can get one fairly nicely appointed for $15,500 believe it or not. A pretty much loaded sport model – like mine, minus the Prima extras – runs $18,000. The same options on a Mini would cost more than $5,000 more.

  21. Mark x says:

    Magically disappearing posts ? ? ?

  22. Hearne Christopher says:


  23. chuck says:

    Nothing says I wish I was dead, like
    fuckin with the Mirabiles.

    This ain’t the Golden Gloves fellas, just have some stromboli and shake hands.

  24. Kerri says:

    What has JJ done to lose all of that weight!!!
    I can’t believe the new you JJ! You look phenomenal!! How do you lose and be around all that food? Keep it up!!

  25. Rainbow Man says:

    life size cutouts at hen house
    Put Jay on here regularly… Let him do some writing. He is the best chef in the city and he has to have some good stories and perspectives.

  26. DEeliman says:

    Cool Car Great Chef
    I dont know about the car but if its a good as the food at Jaspers ,that great!

  27. Rogger says:

    F.I.A.T. Fix It AgainTony, and Again and Again
    When everybody gets done with profusely smooching the chef’s ass; maybe we can discuss the new Dodge Gremlin that Hearnie bought out at the Olathe “studio”.
