Re: What's made you smile today? (Part II)

Seeing my friends' new Panda for the 1st time: I'm genuinely torn between the idea of getting 1 of those or trying to find a 3rd Punto for my next car when the time comes, lol!

Re: What's made you smile today? (Part II)

My friends 1 is a 62-plate TwinAir Lounge: I haven't sat in it or been taken for a ride in it yet, but it's just got so much visual character! It's a great little thing! But, at the same time, I do love my old Grande Punto, and I hope I don't have to part with it for a few years yet, and part of me does kinda want to try and find a facelift version with similar spec to my Grande, lol!

Thanks.

Hopefully! We did get the C3 this time round to get a 5 door, and it's one of the biggest cars in its class in terms of boot and cabin space.

I may be thanking various deities it's not twins..

To be honest part of the appeal to me is just how much of the new Panda is essentially the same as my current one! Though others say thatís a bad thing, Iíll happily take a 2018, shiny new 90% version of my current Panda! Lol

Re: What's made you smile today? (Part II)

I'm exactly the same with the Punto. I really don't care that it's old: my Grande still meets my needs very nicely, it still has a few creature comforts, and it still looks fantastic, so a facelift version would be just as good for me.

Re: What's made you smile today? (Part II)

Despite the rust (****ing shoot me..) this is still a much cooler car than my dad's 3 box 1.0 nova L in the 80s..

I'd have a have traded my family in for electric windows in the back..

Going is one thing, but being Ďa thingí is something else. I remember feeder being popular literally 20+ years ago.

Being slowly driven insane by their music on repeat while playing endurance races on the original Grand Turismo game on the first PlayStation as a teenager, when any car could be represented in 10 polygons or less.
