Exclamation Fiat Road Trip

I'm wondering how many of you have missed this because it was posted in the Panda section. A member of the forum (Jim aka e505jpy) and his friend Alan set out from Belfast to travel to Morocco and back in a £120 1991 Fiat Panda.

So far we've had engine swaps, multiple breakdowns, an abudction and a ransom demand. It's turning into a bit of an adventure.

I'm writing a journal on our club website and Jim is sending MMS photos using his phone. It's worth a read. It all gets interesting when they arrive in Morocco. They won't be home until next week so there is a bit to go yet.

Details here;

Bloody hell, that's more than a bit of an adventure!

Brave men, pass on the Forum's best wishes!

Re: Fiat Road Trip

Christopher, he's serious about that. He wants to hire a container to take two Pandas across to the US and then drive coast to coast!
