Hello Pop Pickers, & At Number 38 It's.....

The Classic Fiat Panda!!

This is the 50th anniversary edition of "Car Magazine" out this week. Yes the Panda is number 38 in their all time greats as voted by the readers and journos.

Heck of a lot of effort for one picture, but I did better than many of the 50 who supplied a car. Fiat UK picked it up delivered it to the mag and brought it back 2 days later, so apart from polishing there was little effort on my part.

Don't know if the pic below is readable as I'm experimenting with a non-stoneage phone which takes pictures, emails, and all sorts of things. You can make calls too apparently but I haven't found the app yet



Edit: ok you can read it fine if you click on it & then zoom - it's then VERY big but readable

Mk2 Golf, Pug 205, and of course the Mk1 Panda all cars I have owned

if only they hadn't forgot about the Rover SD1, Maestro, Uno, Cinq and Hyundai i20[it was an impulse purchase] I would've had a full house
