Re: Panda9001100

Last weekend there was a German Panda meeting were we went with both Panda's. I'm proud at mine gf, while it was her first long drive. We both had a lot of fun during the drive to the meeting. Pic's says more than words .

Both ready to take off:


Just arrived. I popped the hood, so people couls see the lpg-installation:


Well, the biggest change is in the back:


During the roadtrip with all the Panda's:

I love the running daylights, I could see the black Panda very far .

Also present a real Italian Panda, he drove 3500km to be with the meeting:




At the way back I loved this view, both Panda's driving :


Also won a little price for the dutchie guys with 2 lpg-Panda's. it's for my gf for her performance:


We had both a lovely day, but also came home very tired. Driving with 2 cars was something new and need good preparing before we can drive. Our plan is to visit more Panda-meetings, like form Italy and Engeland offcourse.

Re: Panda9001100

Not many updates, just maintance which costs also enough money . The spare wheel is repainted and a new tire. Old one in the black Panda was not safe, so I decided to do it nicely.


The black Panda gets new shockabsorbers in the front (back was done last year) and after this a retreatment of dinitrol, so it's protected from rust. When this is finished, the repainted sparewheel can be installed.

I drive a lot a mine scooter, a Kymco New Sento with a 4stroke injection motor. Not problemfree, but hopefully it's fixed now. I future this scooter will be for my girlfriend and I want a Vespa. I think it's a nice combination, a Vespa on a motortrailer behind the green Panda for meetings and holiday's.

Which drive cheaper, this Panda 1at15 on lpg (or gas) or this scooter which runs 1oat60km on petrol?

Re: Panda9001100

The black Panda has passed the yearly control of the Netherlands. After this the shockabsorbers are replaced with new ones. Also the things which can replaced easily, while the wheel is off. Here everything gone :


And one hour later one side is build in with new parts:


And offcourse when everythings is build in, the wheels has to set up right:


I must say, it drives beautifully now. When you drive over a bumb, it won't 'dance' anymore and steering is sharp.

Re: Panda9001100

Both Panda's are still doing fine. The green one is stalled for the winter, so I have to clean only one car during the winter.
The black one has driven 20.000km without any problems at lpg. Today driven 800km for only 27,- with a average of 15km at 1 litre gas.

New rims are also painted in Fiat 500 white, for the black Panda when the winter is over.

Re: Panda9001100

Still going strong, the black Panda. Also bought a Vespa, never problem with parking anymore .


The black Panda has run 50.000km without any problems at lpg. And the variomatic gearbox also still going strong and a party to drive with. Too bad Fiat doesn't use this anymore.

Re: Panda9001100

Today the car is 21 years old. Technically everything is very good. Also a extra party, because the investment of the lpg-installation has paid itself back. Including extra rearsprings, flashlube & extra valve control.

Going strong and on the way to get 40 years old and 300.000km .

Re: Panda9001100

These dutch Panda's are still there .

I've washed the black one and waxxed it also. The antenne is missing, while I found out the metal was rusted and there the radio wasn't working anymore. . A new one is ordered.


Also a little update for the green Phoenix, warning stickers which were ordered in 10 pieces for the black Panda:

Re: Panda9001100

Too bad the free pic.site wants money to show the pic for others. I can't change the posts anymore to change the link.

Anyway, the gearbox of the green Panda is repaired. The last models (with 1100cc multipoint engines) have a problem that the car shakes when you accelerate. I guess the power is too much for the gearbox and Fiat changed it for the Panda 2.
But for the classic's only solution is to open the gearbox and change the 'sonwheels'.

A Panda without gearbox:


The gearbox open and all looks very good:


These are the 'sonwheels' which needs to be replaced:

The redcircle area's are worn down and causes the shaking when you accelerate.

The green Panda is ready to roll again, just when you have bought the car as costumer at this garage:


And this looked also 15 years back, when I bought my first car here. Sometimes the time stay still........, I think I'm getting old :


Only the roofrails at the roof need to be installed and the transformation form an 'Young' to a 'Hobby' version is complete.

Re: Panda9001100

Yesterday the car is lined out (don't know what's called in english), what means the wheels are set in good why to drive like an italian should be .
The man who helped me (he races also, so he knows enough about cars), said that the gearbox is shifting like butter, so smooth and the car drives beautifully as much as a Panda can be.
And a few weeks ago he had also a Ferrari F40, so it makes me a little special that a simple Panda stood at the same place.
Strange that a brand who made the Panda, owns Ferrari .


I must say, the car drives smooth and doesn't shake anymore at 140km/h, it won't get faster .

I'll be back........I'm back .
