Where are you getting it from? I've seen what looks like a minter up for sale in Harrogate this week, I haven't seen one for years!

the two owners from new are an old couple who live in my village. Sadly the husband passed away a few years ago and the widow has been told this week she's unfit to drive any more. She remembered me asking about the car seven years ago when I had my white one. The car was advertised for £500 but I could have it for £300 because I know the car so well. smile

Dug the car out of the snow to find a solid lump of ice in the fan. So the car will need to be thawed out before any road miles. The locks were frozen and when freed the doors were frozen shut as well. The owners Nissan Micra wouldn't start so I had to push it out of the way. When I eventually got in, I pulled the choke and the Panda fired up first turn of the key. smile

I then used it to jump start the Micra so it could be put back on the driveway and set off home with the window open so I could see where I was going. wink

So now the moment at least three people have been waiting for...





...I won't be able to see the car in daylight until Thursday, but I haven't found any rust at all, the passenger side headlight's cracked (I have one in my shed/loft/bedroom cupboard), one tail light doesn't work and I need to fix the fan. M.O.T'd until August (so qualifies for the £999 Challenge in June!) but the road fund license ran out the end of January. 50,375 miles and I'm only the third owner. I would have taxed the car on line but it would have been sent to the ladies address not mine as the V5 and disc would get crossed in the post. The four speed box (remember those?) is a little bit noisy (possibly due to being stood in three feet of snow). I'll find out more Thursday when I can drive the car properly and see where I'm going.

More later but I think the Guff racer will end up donating a lot of bits to this car.

Apart from the aggressive roof chop, the MS Paint versions pretty accurate.

I didn't see the pictures on my phone, so I cleared my history, cookies and stuff and now I can.

Needs chrome mirrors and the wheels painted a darker shade of grey, a stripe and red brake calipers.

I have been offered a Bravo 1.4 (12V) for £100. Hmmmmmm scratchchin

If it was a 16V (the biggest version of the Fire engine) I would have it.

Shame it isn't the 16v, you could make a 100hp version of the original Panda.
